A little progress

The cold and the rain kept progress slow yesterday, but a couple of things got a bit of attention.

The Carrozzerio is out leaving a hole in the dash to fill with a new stereo:






A bit of compound polishing by hand on part of the roof shows that there is a bit of life in the paintwork yet.

Before:



During - work in progress:




I'm unsure whether I pay somebody to machine polish it or invest in a machine polisher myself.

I'm open to advice on which and advice on a *cheap* polishing kit if the DIY option is the one to go for???



I also discovered that the RAYS gam lights are 17 x 8.5" - wider than I originally thought:




Shame that the only bit of caliper paint that was spilled happened to be on one of the original RAYS stickers...


The rubbish front mudflaps are coming off when I get the wheel off to do the brembo logo on the caliper:




Where the M3 is sitting is where I'm tentatively planning on building a car port...





A bit more to come...
