Cheers Lazza, and Admin definitely hers but i get the ground work. Rad brackets were a simple job and made an impression when you look at the front of the engine bay.

its the simple reworks that often make that difference when you pop the hood.

So the plastic sump guard took to the cleaning bench this week and i was suprised how well it came up with a little hard work, all the plastic on the drivers side front is now done. Next week I move the car over in my very small garage space and start the strip out of the passenger side front chassis for cuttiing out and welding.

Hi John & Luke, yes i did the sump guard myself. It took around 3,4hrs ish over the week and started with washing up liquid (stolen from the wife but we can keep that between us) and a varity of brushes from general scubbing brush to tooth brush. Then a rise down and rags and bumper dressing and a good share of elbow grease.

You're probably right tried it on the inner wing cover but spent a while getting rid of the stain it left
