    Right just one thing has been bugging me for a few months and today i decided to do something about it!

    As you can see from this pic taken about 2 weeks ago there is a annoying bit of rust under the rear number plate [common place apparently]



    Some of you may have said "sod it i wouldnt worry about it but, it got right on my tits

    So off to Halfrauds i went and picked up these



    After a bit of sanding and a wipe down with acetone it was mask up time



    Time for some rattle action







    Not 100% finish wise but, 100% better than before





    Thanks for looking.

    Still is scary but, if you have the weather [like today] things dry pretty much before any crap can get on the paint. The techniques are pretty much the same Dave.
