last few of the 106 before spray (pic heavy)

So in just under a fortnight my old girl goes to have her dents and bruises caressed filled and beautified. In the 11 months she's been on the road and thanks to you guys here I figured I'd stick a few photos from the start to how she stands now.
In this time she has been used every day without fail and other than the normal wear and tear she's been good as gold!
Thanks to you guys and this forum for helping me all the way ❤

When she was finally dragged in from outdoors after 7 years neglect sat in a corner outside





First wash and the bit of tlc I could do whilst other work taking place


First attempt at wax/polishing.. can see how poor the car really is here








Oh my



BUT I was proud....



I then had a helping hand from a local detailer who gave the car a once over and started me on this neverending path

Fast forward to YOU guys and THIS forum...





Christmas time being brave enough to use a DA..






And finally to the last few weeks, wheels banded and made lovely, flocked dash in and new front seats and a little slightly tidier engine photo lol






Finally a rare photo of me... with my buddy's car that she allowed me to start practicing on!



Truly thankful for the ongoing help here, the one forum i frequent as facebook is simply full of keyboard warriors that bounce you off the floor
I would not be where I am and this car would not be anywhere near how she is



now where do I go.. still choosing between gloss and flake but the world is our oyster.

Thank you everyone, and a certain few in particular.

That looks absolutely gorgeous. I'm really loving the banded steelies, especially with the powder coating and all done.

Brill.

thanks guys, means a lot, but all in all it just goes to show how flipping fantastic you lot are and stupidly supportive, yes I am proud and still on a daily basis when i get out of the car I still turn around to have another look as I walk away
Hoping once I've done the big spend on the paintwork I can have a little splurge and get some much needed detailing gear to look after it even better

yes she's been debadged since the day I got her and no plans to put them back in now but the last job has failed which is hardly surprising considering the abuse she had while off road

as for Maggie, you know i actually have no idea! I do know those flipping baking trays hurt though when you sash your shin into them!
Shall ask her and get back to you


Edited to add, not it's a fully customised 1.1 bumper
