Well was thinking last week my bonnet flaps around in the wind pretty bad as the bonnet stops where farked and didn't do there job anymore.

So was looking around for new set and come to the conclusion it was cheaper to buy Bonnet pins at only 16bucks for a set.

So now my bonnet held shut by bonnet pins and the standard bonnet lock :)

Well after the floods that ran though vic on the 4th feb and drive though bonnet deep water aswell as having to pull people that had no brains and tryed to drive the water. I had found out smurfs floor wasnt very water tight was holes here there everywhere on the floor all rubber bungs didnt seal 100%


So yester day i spend the hole day washing the inside of the floor out with a hose (Gotta love no carpet) i can now see the white flood
and also found all the little holes and rubber bungs that were leaking

So my best mate STICKERFLEX come out and i filled very dam hole up and sealed up the rubber bungs even ones that didnt no doing
and why i was at it i removed unused wiring that went to back of the car and tidied up the rest of the wiring only wiring thatcan be seen now is the engines kill switch
only becuase it like inch thick :)

Well today i thought it was time to color match the bonnet to the rest of the car as the black bonnet was becoming very annoying


Step 1 sand the bonnet back with 320 wet n dry paper
Image

Step 2 put 4 coats of black ech primer on
Image

Step 3 wait 4hrs for primer to dry and lay down 3 coats of top coat
Image

And the final step tomorrow after bonnet had over night and tomorrow to dry bolt it back on and give it cut n polish to move the gay bugs that landed on it

Well not much has changed to Smurf atm just in the middle of getting a RWC.

So been replacing heaps of stuff before it go's into the shop.

Its got new:
Panhard bushes front n rear
New Tie Rode ends on steering arm
New steering damper
New windscreen
New standard seat belts
Fitted factory sun visers
New Brake pads on all 4 corners

And the oil sensor sh!t it self so it was cheaper to buy a aftermarket oil gauge then it was to buy a new factory oil sensor

Image


Image

Image

And also dug up the factory panhard bracket that come off my shorty gave it a clean up and will bolt that on when i get a GU steering box
