Did some grinding today mostly on left inner wing .....or should that be most of the front left inner wing.....

Whilst I was in that area I drilled the hole for the raised air intake.....

Then I decided to remove the rear bumper to see how bad the rear body mounts are......as you can see bad

I have decided to use a white primmer so that I can see which bits are done as I go along ....but also so that when I spray the chassis black on it is easy to see that its covered everwhere....

I also have put mastic sealer on all the areas that dirt and grime may hide in......

as a suggestion and along the same line, mark with a paint stick any bolts you have torqued so you can reference that the work has been completed.
