I polished the car completly in several stages using menzerna polishes, finished it off with a coat or 2 of swissvax onyx

beaty shot some weeks ago:


hella stickers on the high beams:


Nevermind the coke bottle, it's just a catchtank for a tiny fuel leak. I need to replace the seals of the dieselpump


I replaced the plastic in the doors aswell...

I put the undertray under the car today, I'm still working on the mounts for the front.


Removed the headliner today, it fell apart in to 3 pieces.


Pretty broken: :(

Nice clean solid example, looks like you're getting stuck right into sorting the little bits and pieces out to.  :smiley:

The gtd has been sitting still for 2 weeks so I cleaned it up, gave it a good wash and everything.

trying new products: AF iron out








this thing is almost finished, I pretty solid now, still have to do the inside and make the holes and then putt the leather on(darkish grey).
