    Cheers and a app called direct upload image sharer, you go to the gallery on your phone share the image with the app then select forum bb code image and it puts the img code on your clipboard you then just select them to post, I'm sure I have made it sound harder than it actually is

    Some fine work going on here. That engine bay refresh looks wonderful, and that colour really is lovely. I would have fancied redoing the whole bay, but don't really have the time, space or inclination to really go for it so am settling for just touching up.

    That respray looks the business though. Always nice to see the results people can get at home without spending thousands at a body shop.

    Just a quick question, how did you get the corrosion off your gearbox before spraying it? I've been cleaning up some other alloy parts and it's been a struggle - I had planned to do my gearbox but with the effort involved with the other parts had decided not to bother. Seeing yours like that though has made me think I really should!

    Thanks for the nice comment the car is now on the road again was a lot of hard work spraying it myself not sure I would do another or that the wife would allow me as it took up a lot of my time!

    The gearbox I washed with gunk then attacked it with a selection of different wire wheels took some time/effort but I think worth it
