Lovely Jubbly, that wheel arch is probably cleaner than when it was picked up from the dealership, nice work by the way, must be pleased with that level of finish.

Finally put it back together on the front.



I've quickly painted the rear calipers as I want to get the car back on the raid but there were looking pretty rusty.

Hopefully get it back on the road by the end of April.

Finally back on the road. Took it to a so called local specialist who just made a mess of it. Need to contact them soon to discuss having at least a partial refund.

Since they had they car it didn’t run properly. Miss fire, vanos was stuck.

So had a total vanos replacement and the difference is amazing. Quiet when it’s ticking over and feels so much more powerful now.

I want a respray but until I have a permanent garage to store it in the winter it’s not worth it. So will put that on the back burner for now.

Will get the rod bearing done as that’s a worth while investment, will look at repainting all the rear suspension.

I also want a set of the the 18 inch wheels as I much prefer the look along with a csl style diffuser.

But now I’m just enjoying it.

Bought some 18 inch wheels I wanted. One is damaged though so now looking for a single rear wheel.

Also built a very temporary carport to keep it out the weather this winter
