Spent around an hour under the car working on one of the sills, will upload some photos tomorrow of an area I'm unsure what to do about and hopefully someone can suggest to me what my options are.

Started removing the rust off the suspension with a hammer and wire brush then applied some Jenolite with a brush to remove the orange stains, the finish was still a bit wruff in places however decided to spray the one in zinc grey primer to see what its like, pretty good finish tbh after just two coats, going to use Hammerite black smooth finish so hopefully that will make it look smooth giving a nice final finish.

After:




I have removed the Eibach stickers off them and hoping to clean them up and reapply, however not overly confident they will look good enough, so uncertain at the moment. Stupid question but do you think you can get replacement stickers?

Show registration plate turned up today from a ex FRP owner on the rpoc forum (thanks Daz)

Popped up to Ford to collect my replacement splash guards @ a whopping £4.60 Smile

Received another wax from a sale on www.detailingworld.co.uk to add to my collection Smile



Expecting delivery of my coated nuts and bolts later so hopefully i'll upload some photos later.

Friday 11/12/2009 (Pi55ed up )

Started paining the rear suspension arms in Hammerite smooth finish, not really getting the finish I want as uber shiney and showing off the imperfections to much, going to sand the paint back slightly and spray over with a satin Hammerite finish, hopefully giving a new finish look.

Nice think layers of paint, enough to flat back and spray up with satin finish.





Hammered David (off to town now)

Take two on the rear suspension dampers after a stripping and taking back properly this time. The angle grinder just the tool for the job, must admit took it steady as the dampers heated up quickly.





Only done the one so far will make a start on the other tomorrow think you'll agree looking a lot better this time around. need to get some more zinc primer tomorrow and a black matt finish spray paint.





Little section not sprayed as sanded back again as slight imperfection.

Stripped last rear damper but still need to get some more paint.







Cleaned up the rear brake lines, used a bit of Nitro-Morse on the blue paint and then cleaned up the metal before spraying with some left over silver calliper paint, unfortunately they seem to be a little pitted in places, had intended on replacing them but at £70 I'd rather save the pennies for else were.

Before:



Masked Up: (and cleaned up splash guards)

Lovely couple of shots of the motor the Police thought they would like to share with me lol



If you looks closely you can just make me out looking through my closed hand making out that i'd seen the camera early enough, if i remember correctly i was saying to the misses i saw ya, perhaps not lol

Usually very good and sensible when not on country roads 😉 , always stick to limits especially in 30 and 40's, really annoyed about this tho as its situated just 300 meters from the first 40 mph sign after about 10 miles of some very quick national speed limit zone.

£60 fine and TTC speed awareness course
