Got a few bits of rust to sort out...

So have a quote from local bodyshop to fix.

Bonnet is a bit far gone, going to have to get a new one...


Bootlid can be fixed





Hoping to get these addressed within the next month.

Got the car up on stands yesterday for a pre MOT inspection, previous owner got the car fully powerflexed so hopefully the new shocks and some new tyres will be enough for a pass.

Car looks awesome. Shame about the rust.

Does your spoiler have an oval sticker on the bottom above the boot badge

You are lucky lad. hopefully I can get it isolated and contained!

The arches are 100% though which I'm happy with.

May I ask why you ask about the sticker?
