Few updates got some amber rear lights
Amber fronts all standard headlights and spot lights

Also started on cleaning inside the boot edges why had nothing on and the lights were out
Then started on the underneath or at least 1 side found a few small bits of rust but nothing to be to worried about so painted the good parts of it stripped the fuel.lines off and cleaned them and the clips and rebuilt it all

Also had a dig at the petrol flap as no suprise its a hole so gonna have to buy a repair panal and get that sorted before paint

Also give the headlight backs and the rain tray for the bonnet grills and lick of paint to tidy them up
