No offence intended, but I don't particularly like it how one part is done and the other is so plain.

Your car definitely looks nice in general, and I am jealous though.

Colourex in Huntingdale, Victoria can chemically strip it for you, I have had many items done there, and Mark is very good, at removing coatings gently.
You could post it to him to get done.

How did you get yours off?????
