I think he will need a CX 2 Loadlugger following him to carry the grin, it will be that large!

It looks fabulous Alasdair :D Doing the bumper scuffs as finished it off a perfect treat...

I got you a BoL for it (and one for the AX) today - spotted them both in a charity shop :)

Blimey, you did a good job on the battery - you cleaned it so well you can see straight through it :-D

Amazing! Well done, you.
There are a couple of engine bays here, awaiting your expert attention...!

While you're fettling, get rid of those old OE lead battery connectors, and fit some decent brass ones, before they become troublesome.

Jings that’s impressive! It looks like a new car brochure pic. Hmm - you haven’t been using Photoshop instead of elbow grease ?😆😳

That is just the cleaning, I have the paint to polish in the engine bay and then the touch ups of the few chips and flakes to do yet.
