Project smokey
#91
Looking good, hope you manage to get a decent result and save the shell. I think I may have a go at painting my car this summer, as my bodyworks pretty poor nowadays mainly due to having to park out on the road. Have you looked into telling the DVLA of the colour change and making it all official? Just wondering how easy that is..

i used 3-4 coats on my interior light panel and its pretty strong i havent managed to mark or scratch it yet turning the lights on and off so im impressed with it, hopefully i can get onto them tomorrow and should be getting some parts soon so i can get cracking on my beam and and tie rods , ill be putting the arms on the same time i do the tie road save taking it apart twice, its going matt black for cheapness tbh so i can have a straight car without having to pay for 5-600 repsray impressed with the finish on it tbh, its the same paint pellowe has used on the meatwagon

Then decided id whip my morettes off so they are ready for me to repair one of the lugs and the area that usually has a screw to hold the indicator in so figured i may aswell spray my grill:

Roughly what smokey will look like up front (but with black bumper)

Also p bushes fitted to the bottom arms (took all of 2 minutes to fit) was expecting them to be hell of alot tighter

Looking forward to seeing this when you get all the painting done, should look pretty cool. What are the lines on the bonnet? Or is that just the picture?

The lines are from dodgy rushed spraying as i will be replacing the bonnet in a few weeks anyway so didnt wanna waste too much time or paint on it but the sides will be done in pleny of even coats Smile so should look ok

Got a few bits from lee last sunday:

Drivers side rear arch liner

Heater motor cover

Roof lining

De-cat pipe

Spax shocks and 40mm springs

The knackered beam off his 6 which i started stripping this afternoon Arb came out alright but TB's are seized solid split 2 blocks of wood trying to knock one out of the arm need bigger hammer and more wood from work :p

And a ph1 bumper as 3 out of 4 bolts snapped on it Sad so rather than messing with it im just gonna spray up another bumper but until then i chucked the ph3 bumper he gave me just so it didnt stand out too much:

Thanks for sharing. It's no small feat to stay motivated long-term with a project like this. Good job!

Love the blue carpet btw. Rare as hens teeth these days I imagine?
