need to get some money together for a boy shop, also abit of detailing on the current paint as there are too many swirl marks.

Ithink the pics make it look tidyer than it is lol. Bits of rust on the arch and sill and boot needs sorting very soon.

Update:

Firstly left indicater was being funny :nono: so after some advice that I need a new stalk, I made a trip to the scrappy for a working one:
Image
Image
old vs new

Next up was new anti role bar brackets and bushes:
Old brackets/bushes, one of them was snapped :doh: .
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
New :D
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then...
I decided to check up front for the condition of the bushes etc as explained before i have a wobbling when turning at speed
Everything seemed fine and when i come to put the n/s wheel on I snapped on of the studs when tightening a nut :banghead:
Image
Notice that only half looks like clean metal so half of it must of been broken for awhile.

After that i cleaned it
Image

Thats all folks. :halo:

The faith is always there however the weather rarely is lol
Money a bit tight atm but some serviceable parts next like spark plugs then Im aiming for all electrics in when I get the cash.

I am tempted to do the bumper but only if I get a compressor because iv got an rst bonnet sat there after being rattle canned and it was hard work then have a finish im not happy with lol.

I know im slacking big time lol
The boot iv got has been de wipered and delocked but still has reg plate recess, i prefer the complete smooth look si it depends how much itll cost to smooth the new one.
Id like some parts like sills replacing and front and rear valances but thats money again so the real thing holding me back is money lol, ud love to say i could do it myself but i have no welding experience.

ill buy a welder and we will practice! think body work and stuff IMO should be left to the pros unless ur amazing at it, but as you said its the frigging money stopping us.

how come you have a new boot? because you want a wiper?

No the current one is rusty, if you look below the window in the centre all the paint has bubbled and started flaking off exposing rust. Also where its been smoothed the paint has cracked. The bumper is looking abit tired also and could do with a fresh coat and maybe a few scuffs filling. Luckily i have a spare set of si bumpers.
