Hi guys...
Please find attached the latest few images I took yesterday - July 17th - of the GLS. Hopefully you will start to see an improvement and if you scrutinize the images, will see that some of the panels now have paint on them...! :D
Come back again soon for the finished article. The car should be back on the road within the next 2 weeks... :imsmiling:
