looks very nice. I must do mine sometime. On that note:-

what sort of cleaning liquids and equipment did you use?
How long did it take?
How much prep on the rocker covers?

(lol @ banter)
from the time i started to the time i finished it was about 9 hours out painted and back in again (but i did drop every f**king nut bolt and screw i got my hands on down the engine). oww that includes cleaning all the engine bay aswell............... I just used white spirit and scrubbed it with a rag and toothbrush done that about 5 times, then i used 1200 grit (you wouldnt believe the amount of crap still on it) then more white spirit with clean kitchen roll and just keep doing that untill you can wipe it and theres no dirt on the kitchen roll. the backs of my legs are absolutely killing me today from being lent right over the car all day, but it was worth it in the end
