wow wish i worked where you work
its to busy where i work hardly ever get a chance to do anything to my car
i do mine at weekends and some nights afterwork
Didn't get much chance to work on her this weekend, just
Polished up the painted front bumper - not a great job, temp fix until i know what to do - replace or have painted professionally.
Installed new number plates
Gave her a good wash.
New rubber all round.
As she will be used mainly by my gf, and only on short town trips, I wanted some 'economic' rubber to put on. In the end I had Roadstone N2000s which after some further reading, turn out to be pretty damn good. At £210 for the lot (tyres, fitting, valves and balance) Im pretty happy. They look quite nice too..
Will update as they wear in with progress on grip, feel and wear.
This weekend was wash and wax weekend before the nasty weather arrives.
More details here..

Have to start a project page too alright. but man your 93 is in seriously great nic.
but they're all right, KLZE is a must ha ha.
just out of curiosity what did you do with the wooden centre console bits! and where they real wood of just stickers on normal console?
Nice work BTW!
All the wood was binned - they were just nasty stick on bits.
