ive been called today (Thursday) by the company who are doing my body work, and say its ready to be picked up, ive told them to leave both front wheel liners off so i can do some work inside the arches myself. hope to collect on saturday.

been in today and collected the wheel arch liners,   but they have said that they will have to keep the car in a little bit longer due to some extra work found!    no problem as i can start to clean the liners and also get new screws and plastic clips. ready for when i do eventually fit them back on.  for now here they are?

Hi Dave , i have a few little bits to be done on mine , mainly on the rear bumper but was concerned what the paint match would be like on a 13 year old car. Would be interesting to find out what yours turns out like.

Regards ,

Andy .

at the moment there has been a few issues on paint? because before i had the car one or two panels have had some work done on them but not a complete spot on match which is noticed only when in different lights of the day. but other wise not that noticeable in general. the body shop guys have been really good up to now in trying there best to do a good close colour match. but as you say the cars age and sun uvs on the paint work does take its toll.  any way keep an i on this as i will update with pics. cheers and thanks dave....

UPDATE,.....been seen car and she looks good :-)      will pick her up tomorrow and take back home, the wheel liners are being cleaned only two done as one had tar and chippings all round it. then its wheels off clean and tidy up all inside arches and paint plus then on top with my builders rubberoid sealant. new plastic trim clips and screws at the front.  then for the rear arch its the same, but hope to re-paint both inner wheels as they are pitting.  will update with pics as soon as i start work on her.

ok guys .... bit of a video done and very shaky but should be able to see whats going on.  now in the video you should see a sponge that is half way up with a silver round patch. when i removed this loads of water came out and it smelt stagnant along with dirt too. also the silver disc had slipped down witch should have covered a hole. anyway all sorted out and also ive got pics.  enjoy dave.

plastic clips arrived yesterday for the inner panels, but ive had to drill out four holes  1mm dia, bigger to get the clips to push in. now waiting for me chimney clips to do around bottom front arch where all plastic panels meet, had to re-mold a plastic panel bracket as it snapped off.
