OK, so in between doing some gardening and painting my shed extension again I did the following:

Fitted the headlight protectors:


Fitted the red hood to Felix:




Then popped the black hood back on Meg and washed the pair of them:

My drive is on a slope and the garage is only a single so when the car is in it can't do any work on it so if I could have anything it would be a double garage
I did an oil & filter + plugs yesterday though dropped the nut in the bowl of oil as I undone it then to top it dropped the bloody filter in and oils went every where apart from that all went fine but had to do it half car in garage and half out not the beat set up wish I had took some pics :broon:
Also done some claying and now got arm ache :rant:
Work to live don't live to work.

Fitted new fan-speed resistors and removed the sticky remnants from where "Sport" badges had been attached to the wings and boot. Looks like they had been removed with a screwdriver, judging by the gouges in the paintwork :( So one job ticked off and another takes its place..

I have been busy
Changed the wheels over to allow refurbishing of my originals.
Dropped the coolant fitted SS coolant pipes replaced coolant with Water and a dishwater tablet.
Drove around for a few days for that extra sparkle ;)
dropped the coolant again now a grungy greeny brown. Flushed, blown, rinsed and topped up with new OAT.
Replaced the soft top catches.as the plastic "tip" on one of mine had broken.

Well as the sun was out (Despite my new tablet telling me it was raining! Thanks BBC Weather App!) so I decided to cut off the rusty 'tag' from the front subframe (from my other THREAD about it), and gave it a coat of stone chip. Looks like it was never there - just need to do the other side now next weekend.

I also decided to re-black the central area of the front bumper where some idiot had sprayed the bumper and not masked it (I think they look awful body coloured in the center!)....



The keen eyed ones amongst you will notice the passenger fog light is now in place and now it works too!



Then it started to rain... so I came in and had a well earned cuppa!

Fitted mesh to the boot vents on my TF, still have to clean the tag ends of the glue off but pretty pleased with the result

Looks great. I did Meg's years ago but still gotta do Felix's yet.... It's amazing how a bit of mesh can make so much difference eh.

Fitted a new style snorkel and made and fitted a servo bracket


And finally got this bit out

Only light surface rust and so far all the nuts and bolts are undoing!

So all thats left is to get all the bits off that will be going on this one

so that I can get the sub frame stripped and painted and while other parts are enjoying a dip in molasses I need to save up for bushes...

Fitted seats and door cards that we got from a t-bar member for a very good price.





Went to put the hood back up and realised why it was a little more difficult than it used to be.
Can anyone spot the deliberate mistake :oops:
