    Default Going dark

    Going dark stage 1
    first up was to remove the rear tailgate kick strip , then to chuck it in the bath with some apc and remove the dirt and grease from it
    next was to polish the plasti chrome strip with Belgom ALU to remove the oxidation ,and then to rub down with some 1200 wet and dry to remove the scratches
    encrued over the past 8 years .
    With this completed it was back in the bath to remove all the residue and to remove any oil from hands etc in preperation for spraying
    Next stage was to mask off the chrome panel, this will be given a clear coat lacquer later on once the spraying is complete
    Next up the spraying and subsequent lacquering IMG_4403.jpgIMG_4406.jpgIMG_4407.jpgIMG_4414.jpg

    IMG_4424.jpgIMG_4419.jpgIMG_4420.jpgA few more parts found themselves being sprayed today after returning from ian,s where we fitted the leather interior with the aid of soulman , plasma , and happie postie
    A very big thankyou to you all
    Also a little mod is in the process of being made to my new rear door cards this will entail the stripping down both pairs and then mixing the parts to make one complete set to this end a trip to BQ was made on the way home to find some small bolts and nuts M3 x 25mm the bolts were then arraldited into the cups on the inside of the decor strip to hold the finished item in place
