So the windscreen wasn’t too bad, the rear screen must be the same right? Judge for yourselves....... Rolling Eyes







Honestly it’s enough to bring a tear to a glass eye! Wall

Thomas, repeat after me. "It's".........."Only"..........."MONEY!" Sad

It will be worth a fist full of the stuff at the end. Don't get too frustrated or loose your love for the little red devil. You will stand back at the end of this and smile as you stare at the shiney, perfect beauty of the aircooled 911 Cloud 9

“It’s only money”. Salut

Still love the car and hopefully one day I’ll be able to afford to fill up the fuel tank.

Honestly the comment about Triggers broom isn’t far off the mark.




Amazing what you find when you start digging, enough to make anyone get a bit concerned owning an older car.




Looking better already!

That must be it then, right? Er no!

An over zealous owner or mechanic has given the engine lid a good shove at some point and put a slight dent to the back end. Easy fix this time and no rust!



A couple of tiny dents which I had never noticed in 6 years of ownership!


The bonnet had always been a source of irritation to me as it had previously been painted very poorly with an awful orange peel effect about half way where it had been blown in to.

A few more bits to tidy up and it’ll soon be off to paint.

Nothing too horrible to report here.

I guess there will be lots of folk in the same position if they were to go digging into the nether regions of their cars.

Coming together.






Pleased with the mirrors particularly as the drivers side always looked a bit iffy with what appeared to be a huge blister in the paint. I was worried it was some broken plastic that would require a repair or replacement. However it turned out to be the paint coming away from the part due to poor prep on a previous repaint.👍

This is great Thomas, it looks as though you’ve given the old girl a thorough working over!

Will we see you out this year?

Cheers,
Paul

You’ve got to love fresh Gaurds Red paint. Garry’s finest work.

I did toy with the idea of painting the red right down the sides and doing away with the black along the undersides of the side skirts and bumpers but I think sticking with the original design was the correct way to go.

Amazing to me how good the finish was even before flatting and polishing.

Remember all the rot and repair work on these wings? Amazing work.

Thomas.....evidence of more great work there,
when he hands you the bill, I've heard that if you scrunch up your eyes and stick your fingers in your ears, it's not so painful! Grin
The upside is you will feel a lot lighter in the wallet area so you can go faster !

Looking forward to seeing your "new" car....
