    Default Spikeys Car (Repair of the Beast)

    Arriving at Marks workshops we looked over Neils car and pondered what to do first. Tea!!!. Cup of Tea was first order of business.
    (apologies for pic quality, taken on phone camera)



    First off was off with the interior trim to reach the dent/scrape and poor old nessie got evicted off of the parcel shelf trim. We managed to push out most of the dent so minimal filler was required.




    Then off with the rear quarter glass. Mark found the best tool to remove it





    Filler was then applied over the top of what was left of the dent and then it was time to sand the filler, and flat off the entire top half of the door panels to accept the new paint.







    On with some gloss to check for any imperfections in the filler and sanding we did.




    Dab more filler and another rub down and final flatting off to make sure all wax and lacquer were removed from the paintwork. Neil sure did put a lot of wax and polish on it lol

    On with the primer followed by another flatting down and a clean up with some thinners.











    Final check for smoothness and imperfections again and shes ready to be painted and lacquered at some point during the week. Then all remains is the reassembly of items carefully stored in the boot

    All in all a good days work was done.
