    Thumbs Up Sunday bloody Sunday or painty Sunday actually

    After recieving my second hand Irmy back box for my car I decided that the bumps and scrapes had to be dealt with. I wanted to look after it as much as possible. Being second hand it'd started to fade and had been rubbed off probably on some speed bumps Ken Livingstone loves so much.

    So in I went. Wet and dry paper in hand, Metal primer and Black VHT paint.

    Here she is bottom of it now without paint at all showing the full details of the exhaust...



    The time to redress her....






    Couple more coats tonight ready for the big unvailing tomorrow
    Its a jam thing
