ok found a bit of time this evening to do some more on the car, so decided to remove the rear bumper and turn the car around in the garage as to give me more room to work.

carried on stripping the underside but wont update pictures untill a large section is complete and ready for primer etc

Been a busy week but hoping to get lots done over the weekend.







when I started the car to move it out the garage I forgot the back box wasn't on WOW loud noises
Now I know all cars sound stupidly loud with the back box missing but Jesus what a noise the FRP makes.

Ok little update

Managed to clear the garage out today, there was a running machine, loads of old carpet, underlay and loads of boxes at the front of the garage, so found space in the shed for the boxes carpet etc and put the running machine in the spare bedroom.

By moving all of the above I managed to move the car another 2 foot further in to the garage so now I can leave it jacked up and not have to lower it to close the garage door. Result



So now the car can stay up on the jacks I took the wheels off and started to clean the wheels, which gave me a chance to final use my new power hose purchase and poor boys wheel sealant.

No before photos but they were pretty filthy on the inside but nothing the cherry wheel cleaner, Maguire’s brush couldn’t shift.

Hoping to finish off the other wheel tomorrow and may remove the rear beam etc (time permitting).







Got a replacement centre cap for this wheel as i sprayed TFL on the wheel a while back and didn't rinse it off properly and it stained the cap

Plus the dreaded xfactor was on again so was another chance to rope the misses in to another couple of hours on the back bax, half a tub of Meguires NXT metal gone

Sundays 22/11/2009

Finished off cleaning the second wheel and applied poor boys wheel sealant.




Put with other in the garage with some bubble wrap over them.


Started to remove the rear beam, managed to remove the two brake callipers, discs and the bolts holding the suspension arms on, but due to my limited tools I couldn't undo the following rear beam bolts,



very frustrating as would have been nice to taken it fully off this evening, hopefully friend popping over tomorrow night with the extra sockets etc that I need.

Spent another 20 mins with the wire wheel brush attached to the drill.

Few random shots







I’m slowly realising quite how much is involved with this project but as I have a year ahead of me to do it I’m no rush and enjoying each time I have some time to work on it.

Right almost time for another hour on the back box

like your thinking there, that's another tool to add to the list.
