So as I am off for a couple days I decided to fiddle with the car. 
Shes been sat since November so I gave her a quick clean to get all the grime off then decide to give the engine bay a clean. 
Top of the list this god awful looking fuel rail

After an hour attacking it with the dremel she was looking much better

The left some deox gel on it for 6 hours cleaned it gave it 2 coats of 182 etch primer and due to having a fair amount of stonechip left............it had two coats of that as well Smile[Image: 20160210_152550_zpshm96swbf.jpg]

I then gave the rad a good rub down with a wire brush as well as the coolant cap to get rid of all the road grime and salt

When I was happy with this I then turned my attention to the bonnet latch, rub prime and ford graphite grey it went Smile

Next was the head. Gave it a good clean with some foam gunk and then a good ole wire brush to bring her back to life

While cleaning the car I did see something I wasn't happy with Sad RUST!

So after speaking to carl it seems that the complete part is only held on by 6 spot welds and seam sealent so this will be removed and treated to a proper job in summer due to it having the same thing on the driver side Sad for now tho it gets treated

You have to remove a rivet in the engine bay, then undo the bolt on the slam panel , one on the scuttlepanel, one on lower trim and two behind the door hinge

So another day and more stuff to tackle. As my strut brace was looking a bit nasty i decided to freshen it up[Image: IMG-20160212-WA0000_zpsdnowl4ke.jpeg]
After taking so long to complete ive decided to leave it raw Smile


[Image: 20160212_164330_zpssczxvp7d.jpg]

After this I then managed to source a tailgate from a good mate Smile no more marked glass and no more rusty seal Smile

Had some free time today so decide to replace the tailgate off with the old one

[Image: 20160214_114014_zpso4xg77tf.jpg]

Replaced the boot seal took my boot lock off as well. Came across a bodge wire job going to the boot popper due to the original wire  being burnt out Angry
So torn it out and fitted my new shiney tailgate Smile

Rallye revival. I would post pictures but photobucket is being stupid. I've been enjoying the rallye recently and had lots of fun at pugfest. A lot off people enjoy the noise the old pug makes Smile but after giving her a hard pounding i've just given her some love by fitting,
New clutch
Quiafe lsd
New gearbox bushes
Driveshaft seals and boots
Steering rack boot
Oil change 
New tyres.

Been enjoying the car as she was for several months and then some twat driving to close backended me Sad lucky for me it was too bad. The c**t drove off after threatening me which I wasn't best pleased about.

[Image: PklEeGM.jpg]
So seeing as the plates were damaged I replaced them
[Image: 9JyFBN6.jpg]

Due to money troubles at the time the hispecs didn't last long Sad so the standards went back on and while I was at it they had a fresh lick of paint.

In my never ending urge to spend money I got a tad fed up of my wheels looking ratty and decided to get them refurbed.....

[Image: po3pejs.jpg]
I didn't Smile managed to find these by chance in Bristol for not a bad price. The white wasn't my cup of tea so dropped the off to get redone this Monday to be greeted with these yesturday

All I can say is they look amazing and they are 240kg lighter than my current wheels Wink should make a nice difference to acceleration I think. That's all for now
