Gordon Murray Mk1 Escort

In this episode we get a look at the painted shell and the Retropower guys visit the Nitron factory to see how the custom struts are progressing.  Some serious work has gone into the paint process, from a 2 pack acrylic base they progressively knocked back the finish with 1500 grit wet & dry, through to 3000 grit & mop cut and polish down to 3000 grit paste.  Rumour has it, it will be followed up with a ceramic coating in a later episode.
