  1. Be wary with chassis legs especially in the section you mention. Any rust you see on the outside of the swan neck is just the tip of the iceberg as they are double skinned there a notorious water trap and rust from inside out 😐
  2. Predictive text can be a pain.................i once signed off a work email 'Kind Retards' by accident in my defence g and t are next to each other on the key board my other blunder was advertising a car with 'One Pervious Owner'
  3. It looks bang on I like lows!!!!πŸ˜πŸ‘
  4. This post made my day after a hard days work class πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  5. I always use a rubber mallet to gently tap the rubbers down as I go and into the corners that should help πŸ™‚ Car looks great πŸ™‚
  6. It’s the original paper factory repair manual I’ll need to dig it out and picture it πŸ™‚ nothing I haven’t found that I need πŸ™‚
  7. It’s not bad I just prefer to pick out panels and replace rather than patch πŸ™‚ I’ve managed to find every outer panel over the years πŸ™‚ the parts in the pic above are the genuine gm strengtheners used when replacing swan necks πŸ™‚ they are in the factory body repair manual I’ll dig it out at some point πŸ™‚
  8. That’s the plan πŸ˜ƒπŸ‘ I have already started πŸ™‚
  9. Some of them did back in the day when a local smt Vauxhall Opel dealer shut down I’ve been collecting for twenty years πŸ™‚ Cheers Danny πŸ™‚

  14. A couple of things that didnt look right to me Washer jets in front bumper and the bumper is fitted wrongly (its pulled upwards to follow the swage lines on the wings) Wrong 3 piece spoiler (Looks like an exclusive one not the narrow i200 400 one) Not relevant to being a genuine i200 but why is it completely without wing mirrors?
  15. It looks like the Skull Crusher sweets i used to get in my 10p mixture at school!
  16. You’ll get thereπŸ™‚ I’ve found a power file and some sharp panel splitters very good for removing spot welds without damaging or holing the panel below which you want to weld to allowing you to neatly plug weld the new panel on if no access to a spot welder πŸ™‚
