I know exactly how you felt bud, I'm like that the now knowing its actually going back in after all that time. Didn't think i would ever get it to be as clean looking as it is now.

Time for just a small update before the all the work starts

Forgot all about the rear engine mount till i found it on thursday, So popped up to see a guy and he managed to get it shot blasted for me the same day

Gave it a coat of paint and now it looks much better

Before


After


And finally got the last of the bits i need(I hope )


More pics to come over the next few days.

It'll look good fully yellow

Pretty sure this was in Liquid Yellow, but was taken back in 2008, and I've slept a lot since then ;
