Post number 4,000 Success

And just got my car back after just over 2 years, £000's spent on paint and 'while you're at it' jobs. A bit of Johnny Dangerous's car still lives in her too Laughing as I bought the shell to nick some parts from.

Drove her home yesterday. 120 miles of pure smiles!!! Very Happy

Soon to be at a meet near you (Probably in May) thumbsup

Couple of pics, when I collected and a during to show off her 'purpleness' Grin






























Just need to sort out the wheels as they look poor now the rest is perfect! Oh, and a super duper wax, maybe PPF....the list never ends Sad

thumbsup

Mostly cosmetic:

Bare metal respray, couple of panels from JD's car (the straight ones Sad ), a couple of brand new panels from Porsche too. Every nut and bolt, inside and out, was new/used but are now Porsche and not random ones from a Mecano set!

4 wheels alignment...loads of stuff!

Still awaiting the final proper invoice but here's a small snap shot of some of it:








Sad Sad Sad

Next, interior and wheels as they look shabby now Rolling Eyes

Thanks you two...I may start a thread for her but I was thinking of both of your thread's...I need more time/skill to be at your level!!! Sad

I will just post up a thread as and when I, or a properly trained person, attempts to do something Grin

Headlights...another thing to add to the list! One of those was from JD too Floor
