She's going in.

Some of you may remember that I pranged Shabash! last may much to my annoyance. Just thought I'd let you know she's booked in over easter for some tlc ready for Auto Italia at Brooklands.

She will be having a few subtle touches over and above the panels and trims that need repairing / spraying so watch this space.

Cheers Jug. Must admit that after the photshopping some of the lads have done for me I'm getting as excited as a Willy Wonka Golden Ticket holder. Can't wait!

Don't worry hon. You can be sure I'll be taking plenty of pics when I get back from my hollybobs.

Re: She's going in.

Well the transformation has started. Have spent 12 hours over the last 3 days in the garage getting busy with the dremel. Coming together quite nicely. Also, have ordered a few bits and pieces and supplies so it's all systems go.

It certainly does. First pics will be after Brooklands as that will be her unvieling event but I shall have a little gallery all ready for when I get home from the event.

Re: She's going in.

Only 3 days to go now and I'm getting far more exited than I should. It's only a car after all (yeah, right!).

Gave Shabash! her first proper clean of the year and I've fallen in love again. It's gonna be soooooo nice having her face sorted so that I don't have to grimace every time I see the front. Have also spent more time than I care to admit to removing, prepping and painting various things ready for her to go in for spraying. Combined with a last minute change of heart on one particular aspect of the makeover makes me think I may have bumped the price up a bit. Ho hum, here's to the 25th April when I get her back.

Well he's got Shabash! until the 24th April mate so I think he'll have time to do both.

Re: She's going in.

Well so much for staving off the post-holiday blues when I get back.

She's not ready but is, as we speak being masked for final painting. ETA next Monday afternoon so I shall look forward to picking her up then.
