Out n About

Recommended Posts

So I got out today.

Not just out in the garden but OUT out... Out in the car.

I stopped off at a local pub, which was closed. Great!!! I didn't want to go in anyway. Just wanted to grab a couple of sneaky photos.

A very nice looking car there Paul, great pictures, just wondering how long you'll be waiting before that pub opens:laugh:

Quite a while I'd say. Been closed a couple of months now with no signs of life.

The place looks real tidy though so I thought I'd seize the moment 😀

Thanks chaps!

 

It's not perfect and I'm sure it never will be but I do what I can to keep it ok.

 

Unbelievably, it was painted 27 years ago so she's hanging in there not too bad.

 

The thing is, since that rebuild I've never got around to putting chrome wheel arch trims on or the GT bootlid trims. Must do that some time.

Chris, I've got the 2 trims for the boot and I've got a few arch trims too. Not a full set of those but have a duplicate or two of one of the rear ones. Anyway, they're a bit shabby in places so I've never thought them good enough to put on.

Back in the day, when the car was freshly painted, I was of the mind that everything had to be like new and those trims just weren't up to it.

But... I'm now in a position where A) New or very good ones are few and far between, and B) If they do come up I can't afford them. So I'd like to make my ones work.

I'm looking for advice on the best way to take a bit of pitting and scratches out of them and polish them up.

If there that bad you can get stick on chrome trim, from Halfords, i had the same issue, the stick on stuff works really well an wont cause rust traps

That was always another issue...  drilling the wing for the fixings and the inevitable water/crap trap.

 

Was thinking of the stick on stuff with a foil tape around the underside.
