Thank for all the kind words all. I was not going to do a write up thread, as i was a bit depressed as to its condition when it was all stripped down :(.
Your arches looked better than mine:p

I would love to do this to my car if (A) I had the money and (B) I did not want to risk pranging it as soon as I have got it done.

Anyway looking forward to seeing it done:cool:

Great write up, just been through the same thing (but at a much lesser level) - I took off those pesky little spats to find a rust spot ... luckily no where near as bad - so just got my car back from having it sorted, plus some other little bits.

You're very brave to undertake this, Scott!
The transformation will be worth it as everyone says. Stick with it, mon ami!
Great choice of colour - will look superb...

I have just been informed that despite the fact my car is not finished,
(far from it in fact :rolleyes: ), it has already made its way into a Meguiars advert: :smokin: :smokin: :smokin:









Mind you, Mr Bibbys Supra got right in the way!!!! :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ;) :D

Don't worry Scott your car's going to look great. Exellent choice for an OEM colour too - very striking! :smokin:

Once the primer's on I'm sure it won't the boys long to finish her. If you're lucky I might end up detailing and valeting for you before you're handed back the keys :chuckle:

Carl popped round last night to give me a copy of the Meguiars advert, and told me it will all be in primer by the weekend :bowdown1: . Then it will be left for a week to 'settle', as it is never good to paint on fresh primer. During that time the brakes are being skimmed.

The only problem I have Goodwood Saturday and the Pod Sunday, so I won't get to see her in primer until next week. What a roast!!! :bawling: :bawling:

Seeing the bonnet and boot finished, I REALLY can't wait to see the finish colour in the flesh!!! :smokin:

As for the Valet, it needs it, the interior is absolutely caked in dust!! :rolleyes:

Mr Bibby brought round my newly sprayed Plenum and spark plug cover last night. :D



I know it is not much, but at least I can see the finished colour of the car. :smokin:

The finish, even of these greasy bits, is like glass!!:smokin: :smokin:

Missus keeps taking the p1ss out of me as I keep popping out to the conservatory to look at them. :nervous: :chuckle: :chuckle:

Well, what do birds know about a beautifully painted plenum????? :rolleyes: :rolleyes: ;)
