  1. Cheers, having one of those
  2. Looks decent at a fair price, can't see the underneath but seems tidy. Never understand why people don't give the interior a clean when selling just makes the car look cared for,
  3. Rack gaiters are also perished, bought these and were told they will fit. Does the part number look correct?
  4. Cheers, I shall go shopping 👍 Last CV boot I swapped was on a Maxi that's how long ago it was !
  5. Least of my worries right now but whilst underneath I noticed both CV boots are perished and also the track rod end rubbers, are both freely available?
  6. Other side done this Afternoon, also many bits wire brushed, Bilt Hamber and painted that the eye will never see but best to get them done. I found out that Bilt Hamber turns red/white hair black I think I'll invest in a cap!
  7. Wirebrush, Bilt Hamber then thick black chassis paint. More Bilt Hamber being applied today and then more paint if the Bilt Hamber cures... temp should be up to 14 so should be fine!
  8. Looks good, always wanted a ginger Manta to match my hair 😁 More pictures please when you get chance, still missing NAD 357P.

  10. In the time you have done all that I have managed to rust proof 2 inner wings, I STILL need to final paint them. Thought I'd get that done this weekend but nope 8AM tomorrow a 8 x 6 Shed is arriving flat pack, guess what I'm doing Saturday still as a bonus it gets the mower and garden crap and bikes out of the garage Sunday, a number of family Birthdays to celebrate, 14 of us at the Chinese Buffet, always next weekend
  11. I was thinking red oxide only as I can get it in rattle cans, compressor needs a new motor, I'll have to see if I can get a good second hand one maybe, probably as cheap as a motor.
  12. I have 2 wings and a rear quarter panel that need a little work, can the hydrate 80 be primed straight over? in the past I have ended up with other brands not leaving a great finish especially if I brush the rust converter/protector on, (used Hydrate 80 on the underside and subframe of the Mrs Corsa, very pleased with it) One last question.... I was thinking of using red oxide primer but will that react with 2PK when I take the car in for it's final paint? or do I need to bite the bullet and try and get my compressor working and use a 2pk primer?
  13. Got me a power file and panel splitter now hoping to get some time next weekend to get to work. Spent all day plastering a blinking wall at the old house and doing tip runs 😞 2 days to get it finished to hand over to the new owners, tons of blown halogen bulbs to replace, one more tip run, last of our crap to bring and then the big clean..... whilst trying to do the day job, can see me there midnight on Tuesday
