PostSubject: Well my first post on here My week in pics   Tue Aug 10, 2010 7:46 am

Copied directley from corsasport

Aplogies for pic quality as they were all taken with my iphone
So it started a week ago with

which then lead to this

and


the person involved understands this pic

the night finished like this

so the next day comes along and i finish off the last of the stripping and start to prep the car

then the masking begins but due to someone who had owned thecar prevously had all the kit bonded to the car so it had to be painted on the car


so that was sunday night on to monday night now we start to mask out the roof ready for paint

roof in progress

and complete


once dry we masked up the rest of the car ready to start tuesday night


this how it looked thursday morning at 9am after having worked all night to get to this stage i also prepped my wheels the bonnet and bumpers that night no pics of that so went back to the shop at 6pm to get the wheels bonnet and bumpers done
wheels finished but they came out s+@t so had to be redone on friday

so friday comes get to the shop at 2pm to get wheels re prepped and the car has nothing fitted to it it was just a shell with doors so a quick call to tony perfect (fast-as-u-can) and gets the workshop at 7pm ad is greeted by car that is supposed be going to TVL the next moring at 5am but it needs completly fitting up so we got stuck in the wheels had still not been repainted by ths time so they were painted and were still wet at midnight wasnt looking good for getting to TVL and by midnight the car looked like

and at 3.30am

finally at 4.04 it rolled out of the shop looking like

so then it was time to leave for TVL after no sleep and nearly a 200 mile trip luckily tony had left at midnight so he could do the long drive to coombe and i went to hastings to pick him and 16vkarlos up stopped at the services for a coffee in the petrol station so grabbed a daylight pic and an arty water bead pic as it was raining


so we set off and finally made it to coombe for TVL where it was on the cs stand looking like (thanks to adam for the pics


Thanks for reading and thanks to all those involved especially dave at Utopia car care for doing the paint work

GsiColey i take it that when you have cleaned your Zaf up from all the over spray and cut and polished the paintwork and shes totally finshed ,you will be putting more finishing touch photos on the site..

looking forward to seeing pictures of her finished ..she's already an eye catcher ..she had quite a few (fallen in love with) comments that i have read across other forums aswell as on here.. and she should be even more so eyecatching when shes totally finihsed ... The white Zaf certainly stood out at Castle coombe...Smile
