    Managed to get the cover lacquered and back on the car tonight. It's not perfect but it's much better than it was.

    While i was waiting for it to cure, I started cleaning up the intake manifold and gave it a lick of paint. Would of preferred to take it off really and do a proper job but haven't got the time at the moment but it's on my to do list

    The rusty hose clips are horrible to look at! They were always the same on my Mazda's

    I'd love to get the cam cover off, shot blasted, powder coated and back on but as I need to use the car daily I need another cover to substitute for a short period. Anybody know where I could get one either on the cheap or does anybody have a spare they will be willing to lend me for a few weeks in return for some beers?

    Ive had a look on eBay and I can't justify spending 60-70 on a part that I need for a few weeks max to maybe not make my money back on

    Spooner restorations do a deposit scheme. You pay extra they send it to you. When you return your one you get the deposit back. Really top quality work as well.

    It had rained a little this morning so got a couple of nice beading shots on the spoiler


    Got to the inlaws and waiting for me was my skunk2 gearknob - WOOP! Not sure if the sticker will stay...


    I'm after a little help guys - the small panel on the drivers door where the switches are has been damaged/worn over the years so I want to get them out and tidy them up. Is there a guide anywhere on how to remove the panel or whole door card if needed? I did a quick search but couldn't see anything...

    The whole card needs to come off then you can unscrew it from the back.

    There is a screw under the little rubber mat on the grab recess and a screw under the cover where the door release lever is. Once you've got these two off, you then start at one corner and start popping the card from its poppers, it should eventually come away with only the cables to the door release lever still attached.
