    there is a tiny tiny crack about 0.5mmm and about 3mm long near the top right of the stereo hole. In all honesty i caould not be fked to rub it down again! i have done it every night for nearly 2 weeks, experienced, paint reaction after paint reaction. i have no clue why as i have used the same paint prima and laquor from the same place. Taken it back to bare plastic 4 times because of little reactions. lol i had enough of it now! lol it can stay with a tiny little nig in it!!!

    Its 99.5% perfect other than that little crack in the paint. it just wont go away after flatting, filling painting! FK it!!


    no offence taken mate, other than that its perfect!
