Sorry for they delay in updating this thread but now on the last bits.

Quite a bit of mechanical work has been done.
Serviced, Oil, filters and some electrical issues and the rear bumper stays replaced, new discs, pads etc.

The rear light cluster replaced along with a nice set of Cup2's instead of the Boxster items it arrived with - both thanks to a very nice man "muggers" of this forum.

Callipers, wheel nuts and backing plates have all been painted and waxed.
Wheels deep cleaned and Nano coated.

I can't believe the condition of the rear PU supports. That British weather and salt on the roads really does effect the metal on these cars.

I'm attaching a couple of pics of my rear PU supports from this year before I gave them a clean up and paint. There was just a bit of surface rust in a couple of areas down at the bottom.

My car having been in warm weather countries all its life has made a difference.

Well all back together now and has been returned to her owner.

He was quite pleased with the difference Very Happy

He has bought an Airchamber for her in the new garage - Quite right too.

Bodywork had a 3 layer paint gloss & protection applied to ensure she stays looking good.

Ah well onto the next one!

Super work Brucey, those hangers :-0

Gonna grab me some of that Bilt Hamber stuff for cleaning the interior for sure.

The disc backplates are only cheap so not bothering refurbing mine.

Well done and let us know what you're onto next Smile
