couple of my coupes have and the others have not..
and one of the have not's was a 1.0 shell, and i doubt the previous owners would bother cleaning it off..

Haha! :D Primer's only gone on where it's been filled/derusted, hoping to have some pics of it in colour within the next couple of days.

Paint is now going on after door and tailgate have been fitted. I've not had a chance to look at it properly, as this was just a peek into the booth mid-painting.

Now back home after over 3 months!


Bonnet will need repainting as there's some shite in the paint they couldn't mop out, but will do that once it's back together.

Still got some bits to do - the bodyshop didn't Shutz/underseal the other side of all the stitch welding, they did more when I pointed out the bits they'd missed - but still left a lot. Bit annoying when they had 5 weeks to sort all the bits I wasn't happy with!

Also the battery tray repairs were left bare metal on the inside and covered in grinding dust, so I've been busy hoovering and treating that with Vactan before getting some Shutz on there too. Found some holes in the welds on the battery tray whilst doing that too, so will have to make sure I seal that well if I want dry feet!
