Doin' a bit more wurk

Right then, I've done a bit of PlastiDipping (which is more to come) so now it's time to do some more serious bits an pieces.

My bodywork is shot so 2 new rear arch repair panels are need as well as 2 new wings. My brother in law has a bodyshop so it was time to pay him a little visit. He stuck me in a corner with an airline, some equipment so I was set.

Front wings are ready for cleaning and priming now after a good prep and sand, rear arch panels are ready for primer and welding in after some surface rust was buzzed away (eBay cheapness to keep the build on a tight budget). Phase 2 should start later in the week, wing and panels primed and ready plus I'll be sanding down and prepping my subtly simplified rear bumper. It's definitely all on now!! Roll on #edition38

It's nice to be nice

Okay so back on the grid again. Been directing a 2 week photoshoot so been ridiculously busy. 7 day weeks and 16+ hour days has been tricky. That aside, one night in the hotel we were shooting we got chatting to Mr. Nice AKA Howard Marks who was doing a talk about his life nearby. Now I do like meeting people with a story to tell but I gotta admit I ain't too sure about being pleased to meet a guy who peddled a shit load of drugs for a living. Funny thing was, and of course I ain't implying anything here, but around 2:30am not long after he went up to his room the fire alarms went off. And they went off again the next morning not long before he came down to check out. Living large. I'll post some dub related stuff tomorrow, my rear arch repair sections arrived yesterday. It's on!!

Rim wurk

The VR rebuild keeps on moving! Next in line were my S2 rims that I'd polished then ran through a bad winter without looking after em and, well basically, they were fucked up. Then I left them in the cellar to get all oxidised and shit so were in a bad way.

These rim are only 16x7 but look awesome on the VR so are the rim of choice for this summer for me, plus, noone really does them on a mk3 so will look pretty unique.

Anyway here are some tricky pics showing how they were an how they look at the mo. Phase 1 is done so next step is to work into the metal to make it smooth all over so they look tidy when polished up. Heaps better than they were.

So here we go.
