    yeah mate if it's no problem, as im only starting my search for next year just befor the summer , say april,may,
    and am looking for the paint work that i seen in max power year's ago, which make's the paint work look wet all the time, and red is the colour i want, even thought there are some good colour's out there, but april/may is a long time a way, i might go for a costom colour, ,

    Would have thought that to make the paint look constantly wet then it would be more to do with the lacquer than anything else.
