General things

Things have been a bit hectic of late so progress has slowed.
Anyway, since last entry:
Front bumper has been taken off, damage repaired, flatted, primed with u-pol aerosol primer, existing paint reacted with primer, re flatted with more paint removed, reacted with another layer. Ah, give up on this.
Bumperettes have been repaired (one of the securing bolts had sheared off) and painted with bumper paint.
B pillar trims have been painted with same bumper paint, found acetone dissolves the vacuum formed plastic, so didn't really need to re-paint once I'd scotched them the wiped with acetone but did anyway.
Ditto mirror bases.
Repainted rubber mirror covers, using vinyl paint and a scotch pad, to give it texture and not become a flat shiny surface.
Spax front dampers fitted care of Fitz.
Front spoiler repaired and now awaiting stone-chip paint.

Pretty much now finding who I want to do the paint for the bumpers and spats, time to obtain some leather re-colourant and give that a go then start using it.
