I managed to force myself into the garage this weekend and finally remove all of the original bodykit..... It wasn't as hard as I was expecting but it was sweaty work Image simple case of applying some pressure and getting in behind with a blade to slice the tiger seal.

Seeing as it was all I removed I then took it upon myself to line up all the kit down one side along with the spoiler and it got me excited Image

Tonight I got into the garage again for an hour and took a good look at each piece of the kit to work out how much damage I have to fix. It's not actually as bad as I thought, it just needs a damn good clean up to remove years worth of old bond and some dodgy repairs what have obviously been done whilst the kit was fitted..... Oh and alot of stone chip protection.

The spoiler also needs alot of work but nothing too scary. The plastic brackets that hold the foils are broken so they'll be remade in ally which Tom at Dreadnought has kindly offered to help with and then the two ends that bond to the body of the car have been butchered when removed. Looking online this should actually be a pretty simple fixed filling the hole with tiger seal.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
