    Not masses of progress recently.

    Been trying to do as much as I can here and there.

    IMG_20200327_161958. managed to get the handbrake assembly together on both sides and Bolts replaced. Have some issues with alignment with my Geomaster 2 but hopefully slide motorsport will rectify as I cannot weld and don't fancy it.

    Test fit new vertex bumper (just placed on, no mounting. Seems to fit decently

    Had a bit of OCD so painted the wiper motor and new engine cover I picked up as I wasnt a fan of the clear one.

    I also but the bullet and bought a compressor which is now here along with 6" and 2"sander and pads.

    So you all know what that means.

    Not going to reveal the colour yet tho

    My compressor has arrived and some sanding pads etc a few days later you know what that means.

    Engine all ready with new cam cover, just needs two longer top bolts and a polish up again.

    IMG_20200406_123501.

    I had a quick hour testing the sander decided to take it back to the OEM base colour. Pretty decent so far

    More to come.
