Here is un update of the painting.
Firstly, I spent many hours sanding it down with 1200, the 1500.
Only to have my panelbeater mate tell me to do it some more.
So I sanded some more.
Then I sanded some more.
Then I had a beer........... and sanded some more. Get the picture?
So my buddy came over with the buff to run over it.
I then went over it with some black swirl remover polish, wasn'e happy so I did it 2 more times.
Then a nice coat of wax.
I prefer to use McGuires products. Value for money seems to be pretty good.
I was pretty happy with how the rear panel came up.
Can't wait to put all the bits back on, then get the carbies tuned and fit the catchcan.
Hope I will make the Christmas BBQ.

Got a bit done tonight in the garage.
The body work is pretty much done now. Just doing little bits and pieces to bring her back to life.

Ready for a big 2010 season with NDSOC  ;D

Hadn't really thought about it, but now that you mention it.......
Got to make up some shroud anyway to direct the air through the radiator.

Wow, that looks REALLY good. :D

Love the job you have done with the rear, car looks super clean.

If done right, S130s can look pretty fantastic such as shown here.

That seemless welded rear looks really good. Definitely the way to go if you're respraying the car anyway.

I finally finished my new rear bumper. More or less happy with it apart from the crappy paint matching job! It's a foam mold i made and then glassed with 3 bolts mounting it across the back and the side little bits liquid nails'd. Ended up using a bit more bog then i would have liked but o well. I had to angle grind off a little bit of the rear panel which stuck out too far, otherwise not too much modification to the car was necessary once the stock bumper was removed.

It seems my car is pretty much the red 2+2 version of that black one, both have shaved rear bumpers and same front air dam. I do have a little bit of two seater envy however...
