Yes the Soarer is in the body shop for the following,
Full respray still FSG(All battle damage removed) replacement wing.Yes Mike finaly got round to it!( glad I won't watch him trying to line up the door and wing though!)
Undersealed(no rust anywhere except some surface stuff where a towbar would be mounted)
Wheels are going gloss black with existing chrome trims
Side and headlights refurbed(thanks dazzav8 when its back I will do as you have.)
Full Valet.

Not really driving much due to both Jenny and I having health issues but I had to nip out in her 2.2 Prelude Vtec. Quick but chalk and cheese come to mind. Still both cars stay with us (barring accidents) whatever the cost.

Paul

hi paul i would love to have mine resprayed but the cost i just cant justify and the fact of not making me mind up on a colour its currently fsg but yellow is my fav car colour , the best two things i have done to improve my lights have got to be the hid upgrade and the fitting of glass main beam lights

Car is back and looks the business all ok except the front O/S indicater does not work. Had a quick look.How the hell do you get to the bulb? Could be as simple as a lead not replaced or the bulb has given up as the light has been out when the wing was fitted or when the lens was sanded,polished and sprayed with a UV coating.Not able to get back to the chap who did the job for a week as he has taken his kids on holiday for half term!

Airbox side.What also worries me ia they are after market lights with 3 pretty blue lights on the top and three chrome shades? when the indicator lights are what bulb will fit.(as you probably know I am severly disabled so I have a neighbour who will have a go at it for me)
Thanks for your reply
Paul
