Looks like some paint loss on the bonnet/hood. Are you going to repaint this one?

There is no paint lost I think it is dust in the sunshine where I have taken it out or storage, it has quite a bit of metal flake in the metallic paint too

Just took these picture as sun as gone in, no paint loss, only thing is that I never bought that many spare back then I got the grill & rear bumpers from BTS Mouldings but I never replaced the missing steering wheel & seat backs so on my shopping list & a steady hand with tweezers will be needed.

Yes, those are much better pictures and now I can see the nice metallic paint job as it should be. Before it looked pitted and with paint missing to me. Funny how that sun shine came make a very nice model look like crap.

Steady hand indeed but should not be too hard. I think they just press into place so might be rather easy.
Does it need 2 seat backs or just one. They might be harder to install. SF has them for £1.35 and if he has them then Rob should have them too.

Steve if back open again by the way.
