Spray, roller or brush? Looks good whichever way.

Splendid!
All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

MoT booked for Saturday morning 10AM. Need to get much arsedness to finish the odd jobs before then.

Bolted my mudflaps on tonight and bolted up the wing to the chassis upright plate thingy that goes to the bulkhead. Also hopefully sorted out the leaky sump through nipping up the sump bolts a bit more than they should be. (A quick fix I know but I have a new gasket which ill sort out when i do an oil change.

Only really need to put my door seal on now as well as fit the brackets to take the mudshields before checkerplate.

Larger job is to lift the wing slightly to close the gap between bonnet and wingtop which is rather large.

Zuma, the paint has been rollered on and it looks much better in photographs than real life but its not a bad finish nonetheless  :)

Cheers for the comments :)



I would have gone for more of a spin but retired to put my checker plate on to hide my beaten up wing tops  whstle



Also if anyone's on Anglesey, the garage in my picture above is very series friendly. He deals in parts too quite cheap.

Had a good bank holiday weekend with the old landy, took her to the garage on Saturday morning to sort out the tracking which was out very slightly and is now spot on, its lovely driving with a centralised steering wheel again! Took it for a spin then with my mates in the back, did about 20 miles in it. Here its at the Holyhead breakwater park, an old quarry/ brickworks.



Monday was better weather so took it for a spin round the southern part of the island, here its at Cable Bay, which is between Aberffraw and Rhosneigr







After that I continued on the road up to Newborough and went for a walk up to Ynys Llandwyn
