I got the calipers and Steering rack painted today , Sprayed them as the calipers are to fiddly to brush , You get more paint on your hands and know way of holding them really.

Weather was a bit warmer so i got to grinding out the Jelcoat cracks on the roof , Some are cracks , Some are the gelcoat lifting , Looks like someone as attacked the gelcoat with one of those Gouging chisels and it as just started to lift !!!!!!!!! Strange !!!! , I made a couple of inquires and was told to paint first coat with Mastic Polyester Spray Filler !!!!!!    I got the body outside today on its side to have a look underneath at the damage or repairs that it needs , Not to bad really , For some reason they have filled the front subframe floor mounts ???? ,I removed a couple of bits of wood that was poorly glassed over, Going to trial fit the front subframe to see if anything is wrong!!! ,Rear arches are a bit rusty but i reckon i can just repair them after removing some matting and grinding away the rusty part, A few photo's added  , My wife say's i am crackers , Ha Ha . Maybe she is right ????
