    The ceramic coating is a really tough top-coat that gives a brilliantly deep shine. Everything underneath is getting a good inspection and anything looking suspect will be changed out. Underneath will then be corrosion protected.
  3. L 975 EPB (my baby) has gone in today for "the works". She's having a full respray in the same, original colour, with any rust removal and dent correction. She's being rust protected underneath. She'll also be getting a full service with all fluids and filters being changed. I'm also having a full inspection of the suspension bits and pieces. I can't be too precious about not having her around for three or four weeks because we are off to Skiathos for a fortnight on Friday. They have promised to take lots of pics so that I can follow progress whilst drinking lots of Mythos in the sun Can't wait to see her in "as new" condition again.

    No news yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ryan and the team have had BIG problems. His painter has been off work due to "family issues" for several weeks and they now have a big back-log of work to get done. I'm not taking her anywhere else because I want this team to do the work for me. I'm missing her a lot and have lost out on all the good weather but it's not a disaster in the real World. Probably will be getting her back looking wonderful by mid September, that's life eh...
  5. Nice one Jeff, not a bad looking car to lose out to

    Also decided to go for the Ceramic coating after the respray. Got it on my Hyundai and it's worth every penny/pound. A proper shine that looks better than cars sitting in a showroom They've been in touch today to ask permission to take her as an exhibit on their stand at the Oswestry Classic show. That's before they've even started working on her. They reckon she'd be a talking point. I've said yes of course even though I won't be in the country to be there myself but I'll see the pics

    Don't worry! There'll be pics galore when she's done I've told Ryan that I insist on lots of pics of progress so that I can still be in touch whilst away swigging copious quantities of Greek Nectar in the sun

    Thanks GT-4grey and Chris. Yes I'm nervous but expectant. The guys that are doing the work for me actually have E-type Jag #2 in being reborn from the ground up and she's looking amazing My original three spoke wheels are also getting the treatment and the original side repeaters and indicators are going back on. She's gonna look original and mint when she's done

    Thought You guys might like this.....

    That's a proper beauty.... Brilliant that you were involved.
  18. That's one hell of a camber.......
  19. Jeffers-1 and myself at Oswestry Speed and Rally Show today. Two UK GT4s side by side is a rare thing.
  20. Went off to Oswestry Speed and Rally Show today with Jeffers-1 in his GT4 and Dave (TommytookaMoto) in his Gen7. Sunshine was abundant and I need "after sun soother" ! The show itself wasn't brilliant but enough going on to keep our attention for a few hours. There was an unfortunate incident quite early on when Jim Lawrence in his Bowler Wildcat left his breaking too late and did a headfirst into a tree. We're all hoping he's okay. It took an hour to extricate him from the car and get him into the local air ambulance. Pics below are the two GT4s in the carparl/field and Jim's Wildcat after the off !!!!!!!!
  21. Cleaned it ready for "Speed and Rally" show tomorrow. Put the new mats in as well. Exciting stuff....
  22. Cleaning day ready for Speed and Rally at Oswestry tomorrow.
  23. Well that's very strange, the pic I posted yesterday is halfway down page 1 !!!!! Try again Meirion. My baby with a bit of a grunge photoshopping.
