      Right another little update

      Right winter is here and the ats cups r off. The azev wheels won’t be going back on for the winter as they have been sold. Spent a while now looking for a nice set of winter wheels as I don’t wont the car to look ****ty just cos its winter.







      They do need a refurb so they weren’t on the car long as they have been sent off for a full refurb.
      Also purchased a heavy duty car cover as this car isn’t driven much but I still couldn’t leave the ats cups on through the winter as acid ran amongst other things would have ruined the finish.

      Hello
      Time for another update

      At edition 38 the front arch came of when the front wheel went into a dip in the grass not a major problem but we found a major amount of rust underneath the arch

      So we decide with the show season over it would be the best time to strip the car and give it a full refurb. Took about 20minutes to strip the car and every singal arch was rusted






      So we order all the replacement panels
      Rear arches x2
      Front wings 2x
      Side seals 2x
      We also had the bottom checked and there’s also a little amount of rust nothing major but might as well get it sorted. The petrol tank straps had a bit of rust so there being changed nothing major but as I said might as well be done. All the other parts aren’t bad at all just gonna take them off sand blast and stone chip paint them. The rest of the car has been checked and its mint even underneath the interior carpet. The cars in the body shop now there guna get rid of every bit of rust weaver it’s underneath the car or visible. And the cars guna get a full respray. A few other mods might be done to the body depends on money. We want do this car properly and have 100% rust free car so everything is being done all the rust cut out and replaced with clean panels. All the work is being done by a trusted body shop so will keep you updated as I pop in on a weekly basses.
      Here’s some pics when the body shop started striping it lucky it was very clean and rust free on the rest of the shell so no costly surprises.

      What a shame that there was rust under there, best to take care of it however.

      Hopefully the respray comes out as good as your OEM paint looked, because it looked perfect from the pics
