Polished alleycats

I now know why lepsoms charge £52 a wheel ive made a start on hand flat polishing the alley cats. sh!t me its hard graft. I've painted the rims orange to match the vinyl, and polished the rim and face. this is the first finished wheel i have a feeling that by the last one i probably wont bother. im yet to get a mop head on it to give them a final buff, but im quite pleased with the results so far.

Spotlights

The spots have gone. I think it looks much better without.

X-Flow owner

I have had a week off to crack on with the beige car. I now own Lambs xflow, which is a 1700 high comp stage 3 engine on 40's, in very good nick. I have painted it a very fetching shade of orange, to match the wheels and cage. I've also bought lots of polished and new auxiliaries to be bolted when properly dry. as for the shell i have welded all the plates in for the feet of the roll cage and other bits. i have yet to do the 5 speed conversion.

Stickers

I have made up my Ford racing vinyl strips to match the orange of the wheels:

I've also finished flat polishing all the straight wheels, however i cant get tyres until February. I have to wait for Continental to make another Batch of 195/45/13's.

Parts clean up

A quick update, thought i would make a start on cleaning up and painting some bits and bobs, ready for when i throw it all back together.

Fiesta tiebars

ive started stitch welding the shell, the seam sealer is a right pain in the butt to remove though. and ive foung a little patch of rust which was missed when the wings were put on so im going to cut it out and deal with that now
