Time for another update!
Things are progressing nicely, all 4 doors are painted and 3 are fitted/fitted up and everything works, one came from Aberdeen, the other from Chatham, one from Brum and another from Manchester! Thank god for a company car
Both replacement front wings have also been repaired and painted and throughly waxoiled as was the inner wings and front end, so far only one is fitted, the old drivers door needs to come off so I've left the new wing off until I fit the new door just in case! The bonnet's at the painters being prepped and once the challenge is over she will be moved to the bodyshop for one new rear quarter (n/s) to fit and paint it, paint the other side, the A pillars and most probably the tailgate!
So far ive spent over £25 in hinge pins and trim clips alone, £100 in paint and £150 (more to come when they do the bonnet) on labour plus all the new lamps, bumpers, mirrors etc etc.
Im undecided on the alloys so far as they arent up to scratch, yes they look ok from a distance but when you get close they are still tatty, so I may either get them diamond cut or have them painted instead.
The interiors going back in slowly, the new seats (from the 16TRS which is now sporting a leather interior) are patially fitted as is the new rear boot side panels, parcel shelf and supports, the carpet is still in my airing cupboard so will be have a quick vaccum before refitting (its been steamcleaned last Autumn), although I want to tidy the floor up first.
No wonder I have no money!
