    The new boot decal couldent have gone better to be honest only took 30mins to get the window out decal on and window back in with a quick clean of the seal Having never taken a window like this out before i cant belive how easy it was First job after getting the window out was to clean up any of the old glue using meths and a little bit of scotch bright being careful not to got through the paint or over any paint that would be shown after the decal was put on, i did use a heat gun for the larger bits of old decal left behing which look the old glue off with it too. Then using the holes for the wiper and washer i lined it up and i will be compleatly honest i just wingged it and did it all in one go. Used a heat gun to gently stretch the vinyl around the corners and lines in the body Refitted the window again so easy with the help of a mate and some old train emergency stop cord Fitted the spoiler and wiper arm job done!!! And for the time it took and the price i think it was well worth it, its compleatly changed the car

  7. Daily Mk2

    todays progress some of you may have noticed that the boot lid surround was pealing and it really meesed up the back of the car so ive now removed the old one to be replaced by a new one tomorrow after ive got the rear screen out. Heres the new one cut from pretty much the same vinyl as would have been used in the factory Heres a pictures of the interior before it gets replaced with rainbow on wednesday And finaly i thought i would show you just how bad the rear struts were

    Here's my new daily, well i say new its as old as me but much better looking all the same when i picked it up the rear sturts were just made of rust the paint was starting to go pink and the idle speed was through the roof and the g60 leather someone had grafted in there was well just sorry... but i instantly fell in love with it and you cant put a good dog down can you as far as plans go i think im right in saying that im going to be doing the exact opposite of what most people do here including me and thats put it compleatly back to original and just a good general tidy up first i changed the rear sturts and then went about a really good clean polish wax the works then the original bbs ra where sent to blast and coating and refitted next is new front and rear bumpers and replace the viynal around the tailgate i havent got any pics of what it looked like but here are some of it now Thanks comments and advice more than welcome

  14. powder coating

    hi was just posting to ask if its possible to flat and spray clear coat over black powder coat? looking at getting a set of wheels powder coated, then flat and spray part of them with base and then spray clear the whole wheel, im thinking it would be quicker and easyer than spraying the whole wheel black first cheers gibo
