wings or bulkhead, the best thing to do is remove all the pipes etc and mask the lot up, then have a go,

Masking up etc will be fairly easy, just the inner wings and the inner arches and the rear bit infront of the battery (that looks the most difficult bit.

Suspension turrets have already been sprayed

I've cleaned the slam panel up really good, that does'nt need doing, the right hand side should be ok looking at it, the two bottles come off easy just move the wiring on top of the gearbox and mask it all up.

300, I gave him 500 as he got loads of new parts like pads and bottom arms and pipes etc etc.

Faster than Corsa GSi, had a race with a Corsa GSi equipped with a Dblias inlet manifold and could have got past quite easy.
