Once out of paint could start building it back up





Cleaned bonnet vent up and gave it a fresh coat of satin black, used g tech on the black rubber edge and cleaned all under plate up





Then collected all the small parts from the body shop
Rear bumper
Side skirts
Door handles
Fuel flap

Also ordered a complete front bumper in part form due to someone reversing into the original one

That looks great!!

I take it that it's good underneath and mechanically?
Yes mate it's absolutely spotless underneith, my mate who does recovery couldn't believe how mint it was, he said he has picked loads of 7/8/9 that are completely rotten
