Indicators, aerial and handles will get stripped by them. This was a quick buzz over to check the condition of the paint. Seems some parts have been painted in the past. Badly.

Entire bonnet will be back to metal due to poor paint in the past, looks like it's had a blow over while in Japan.

With regard to reattaching the front wing badges, I found that careful use of double sided 3m tape and careful use of a scalpel (to cut around each character) achieved good and lasting results. HTH

Thanks, I was hoping that was the case.

In other news, the rear quarter has come off!
