    Well winter is nearly here so made a start on the bay as thats the bit that didn't get painted so took the hammer and bolster to the rain tray Laughing i have wanted to do this for ages as it gives you so much more room to work on the engine.

    so here is todays progress all in all took about 3 hours to do to get to this stage.just needs the spotwelds drilling out and then prepping but wasn't a bad job to do.















    now all that metal is out i have to remove all the sound proofing and all the original wax but it's getting there What a Face

    Today i decided to get stuck in as it was a nice day.

    1st job front bumper and wings off





    Then started to sand and grind back the remaining bits of the rain tray















    Pulled it completely to bits today Laughing
    charger is off so i can send it off to G werkes to get it checked over.

    all the wiring is out of it rad/intercooler the lot are out.
    wont be doing anymore till new year now.

    I have decided that it won't be back on the road till it's right and had a full lick of paint all over.

    Thats it at the mo,just chucked a quick layer of zinc primer on it till next year aswell.







    Looking pretty sorry for itself but all will be good in the next year or so
