Re: Cosmos Black Paint

Deni2s thanks for the info, the plate reads 668/9 which is black II according to your chart and non metallic. Which is not what it was advertised as when I bought it! Go change it now. Thanks again.

Anyone up for a Sutton on Sea meet in the not too distant future? will look into it a little more if enough interest shown. The usual meet at a local pub, or down on the front.

Yeah a cruise is a good idea, depending on the day & date. We have to think about those who have come from further a field, like Newark, Rotheram, might be better off finding a half way point for everyone to finish at. Then again if people are happy travelling that's fine.
