    As above, use up the old gear on other cars or parts like wheels, etc, where absolute looks aren't as important. For the bodywork, in my opinion the best option would be to treat yourself to a Werkstat Acrylic Kit, as nothing else is capable of matching it on light metallic finishes. Here are some example pics to tempt you plus more information on why these products work so well...

    Aye, the Werkstat line is dead easy to use; I can't comment on the Dodo as it's not a range we have ever worked with. :sm4:
