Hi Zsolt,

That could be right. I searched for it and saw the image of the build by John Prigent. It certainly would make sense to place radios on the fender. This is the only photo of the actual...

Xtracrylix are made by Hannants. They make enamel and acrylic equivalent which I use. They can be quite tricky to use. I would strongly recommend using their own thinner, and a drop of retarder (I...
