    Body localised spraying.

    Now finished the spraying, the paint is reasonable match considering 20 years of fading with the original. I bought the paint from paints4u. They supply kits with all you need for repair jobs.

    If you have the glovebox lid off and there are no dotted cut lines or a narrow vertical panel about the centre of the heater there is probably no filter. Facelift K11's didn't have a filter if there was Aircon fitted.
