Ever since the Stylus arrived I've been putting in around 12 hours a day on the cars & I'm knackered!
But I have achieved. The flip-front on the Quantum is painted & rubbed down, I need to polish it more, but it's looking good. Today I swapped the cam covers over, the Stylus' one was powder-coated blue, so while it looked nice, it wasn't really the look I want for the Stylus, so I cleaned most of the red coating off the Quantum's cover & put it on the stylus & yes I know it looks ratty now, but it'll look better when it's finished. I filed off the "16v Zetec" & "Ford" lettering as well as a raised rectangle, so it just needs finishing.
It won't take a proper polish (too much zinc in the alloy) but I'll clean it up more than it currently is & buff it a bit.
I know it's not to everybody's taste, but bear with me - it'll work out.
Also in the list today, there was a hidden switch to cut power to the LP fuel pump, which means that thieves can only drive the car until the swirl pot empies - about 10 miles if they're carful. On closer inspection the switch looked very industrial, so it was replaced with a smaller, lighter one.
I'd looked into upholstered pads & while they were a decent price, they were more than I wanted to pay right now, then up popped an ad for a dozen 10mm thick x 500 x 300 self adhesive foam sheets for £10, they arrived today & I've made a set of pads for both seats. They are NOT of professional quality, but will suffice for now.
And yes, Blatter still can't turn an image round
