It's not too often we get to see these jobs in such detail from start to finish, I love it.

An excellent result and a true bargain of a car.
Not many would have had the stones to do what you did.
Fair play.

Cheers Guys and Lenny knowing your look the rope would snap lol.

Well its now at the local hand-wash, dropped it off at 12:30, he looked inside and said comeback at 6pm to collect lol, aparently it will take a while to dry, fair play to them they havnt even asked for more money after seeing the state of it. £35 for full valet inside and out seats cleaned everything.

Well she has been picked up from the Valeters, and apart from a couple of stains on the front seat bases has come up a treat, they did say wait till they completely dry then take it back in for another try. overall paintwork has a lot of small scratches but a machine polisher and about 4 hours should kick those into touch, then its only a couple of bits of paint and rear arch repair.

But for now she has test and tax plus insurance so my better half is over the moon, and as the old saying goes happy wife happy life he is a few pics. ;)

two words - Jammy begger - two more words - Bang Tidy!

 

That is one heck of a transformation, and I know who I need to employ should I need any panels replacing...

 

Good job George! so - when do the mods start ;)
