what a cow to fit these aftermarket arches.

after much tacking fitting the door and jiggling got the shuts pretty spot on but you can tell the panel is sheite. got to extend the step section as it is approx 7mm short Rolling Eyes

the usual inner wing repairs
but on the other hand though, when i chipped the under seal off it all looks og paint on the rest of the wheel recess
high build primer after a lot of prep work on this arch, man does anywhere make good quality panels for bays.

had to get rid of that horrible Noddy nose on the re-pro front panel, and sort out a couple of rough bits. then fit new lower section as this was never done by the PO, even had the lip on the bottom of the re-pro panel about 4" above the bumper

quick rub down

and a coat of primer, just got to block it tomorrow and get ready for a quick top coat. nothing special at the mo as i need to use it,but it will get a complete strip down and respray later in the year.

hmm


not really happy with this, put the first coat on a bit thick Rolling Eyes but itll flat out. 2nd and 3rd coat went on nice.

paint is close, was a perfect match when it was wet but now its dry its a bit darker!!!!
yes maybe a bit to quick,but i wanted a few things done before volksworld show. really not happy with the front end and have decided to do it again after the show. on the other hand, picked up a pair of solid rust free early bay doors today for a nice price, and he even threw in a few extra bits for free.....joy.

Your at Volksworld then? You camping? Me and Darren (and Kat and my sisters) are camping Saturday night.

Sounds a result on the doors!

I still haven't popped up your new workshop! :O
