So the last couple of days and a few extra hours today, was all about even more prep, then painting, painting and more painting.

Mark came over in his Spitfire to give us a hand. Mind you, he was asleep on the job.....

Came back in today to finish off the painting and start putting clips back on and re attached the centre and rear valve blocks after changing all the seals.

Rear anti roll bar was removed the other day although the drop links needed some assistance to release the nuts today.

Plenty of coverage on the rear of the body especially the mud trap behind the front part of the wheelarch as that was where most of the surface corrosion was.
