So here it is...

Nothing radical, nothing outrageous, just a very good sprayjob completed to tidy some areas up that I wasnt happy with:) to bring the condition back to somewhere that I want.

Areas sprayed were:
bonnet
front bumper
Passenger door
Power pipe

Paintmatch is spot on - big shout to Steve @ station bodyshop (01329 825472)...He is new to Station, but is a very experienced and competant sprayer.8)

At the same, I had the following fitted:
- New passenger fog light
- New reduced size tinted front number plate
- smoked side repeators
- LED white sidelights
- HID style headlamp bulbs (very impressed with these)

Car was gone for a fair while, but Im really pleased with the finish8)

As the old owner clearly used brillo pads to wash the car, I wanted the swirl marks removed.
Benn from station bodyshop did this for me on saturday afternoon. He used some 3M compound, and I followed up by washing and shampooing the car 3 times before I used Megs step 2 and NXt wax to finish up.:D aswell as removing the dust from the interior and under the bonnet.

Pics as it is currently.

Socks in pic of wheels.

Should look ace with wheels on and a good bit of lowering chap - looks bloody brilliant as it is to be fair, looks like Benn did a top job polishing it!

I reckon a colour coded plug cover with chrome rocker could look rather smart ;)

Dan - gotta love the red toe and heeled socks, lol.

Al - Engine is almost untouched currently. I will be doing all the hoses in samco blue, and the rocker cover will be treated to some love of some sort.
Benn even broke a sweat in the crack of his arse polishing her. pmsl.

how much you going to lower it by
40mm initially. I can see it wont be low enough, so coilovers may be bought when I can afford it:eek:
