All the arch work was completed today. Just need to tidy up the inside of the arches, seam sealer and stonechip. Paint is going to cost around £240 plus labour to get it finished. My Ďto do listí is getting shorter!

Well done, getting there.

Would "wrapping", it be a cheaper option??

I doubt it. I have considered that but reckon itíll degrade unless covered as wonít be used much.

No, wrapping the whole car will cost more.

I looked into wrapping, and it's the same as a complete/full respray - if it had been cheaper that's what I'd be planning on doing on the mustang due to the paint issues it has.

The grandson bought one out in Texas and he had problems with the paint.

Known to be very thin, they said come back in 6 months and it will be fixed under warranty.

He chopped that one in for the bigger engine one. First one was black, the new one is white. He had that ceramic coating put on the first one to help the paintwork.

Small steps. Tidying wiring and getting gauges sorted. Will need to replace them as not weathered well, protective film has bonded itself to the dial face.

Fresh RON98 added as ran dry. Starts on the button now, what a lovely noise!
