Well, it's gone from a quick sort out to sell, to a resto thread!!
Tired of the graffiti, so that's coming off. I have sanded most of it down (just the shitty little bits to do that I can't da into).

Some holes to address and there is some old filler that has cracks so investigation time.
I have stripped the front end down (wings, bonnet, bumper grill).

The power at the unit is so shit, we can't get the compressor to run, however I saw the landlord yesterday and he's going to get it sorted.


I will pop up pics later.

To this (What have I gone and started!!)

I started by trying anti graffiti paint remover and rats steam cleaner on full blast.  Needless to say after 4-5 hours, it wasn't really working

I then turned to the good old fashioned da

Anyway, as I was saying. In my usual Gungey way, I got a bit carried away as things were getting in my way and got to this stage

Things continued to get in my way so out came the interior

I have started to go round and sort out some of the dent that resulted in high spots. And rubbed down some more.
I ordered the offside rear arch and near side door step which arrived from the panel shop.  No cheaper from just campers or on tinternet that I could find after delivery.
Still loads to do, but going to try and get this ready for paint ASAP as there is moister in the air and I currently have lots of bear metal on display.

Not sure on colour, I did think using the same as the bug, but might try and do something different Wink
Thinking caps on.

Hmmm, I really need to start updating this, although not done a huge amount to be fair.
I keep finding bloody holes, I know that much!!
