I beg to differ, I think the images could be added to the 'come on the greys', but I would encourage a specific R3 thread, as we haven't seen all that many as yet.

COME ON R3's, add your pics of your lovely cars!!

The car has been sitting in the lot outside the factory in Japan, shipped half way round the world and then in the Preston area for an unknown period of time.

The claybar was essential :roll:
