Will do Garry !

Couldn't paint today cause it was raining on and off and I couldn't take the car out because I bared the firewall ! Its just great to strip back the old paint and have no rust or modifications :yeahhh: :yeahhh: :yeahhh:

Instead I tidied up the weld marks on the sub frame where I modified the inner guards to suit the rail trim.

Blew myself away, it turned out better than I imagined, although a couple of dust specs from either the gun or from the masked areas.
My fingers are hurting from all the prepwork so thats it for today, hopefully more over the weekend !

The sub frame has been a royal pain to get straight around the modifications I have done and I have resisted the temptation to paint until its right and that was today ! Unfortunately I got too excited and of course have a few runs complimenting my eagerness !!!!

Oh well more sanding and try again !
