The car came with about 30 paint splatters on its bonnent, dark brown and black. Dark brown stuff came off with thinners and a bit of rubbing and scraping with finger nail, but the black stuff wouldn't budge , I had to get a razor on it and ping it off. Also had a bit of grey sealant on the bonnet. I assume former owner did some external house painting in its vicinity.

So I've washed it after that, clayed the bonnet, polished and waxed the bonnet, looks a lot better.

So I've decided to press ahead with full resto, ordered 350 worth of bits from autodoc, mainly suspension and brakes and a few other bits like new abs sensors and new boot struts.

So Jeremy will need to organise getting my hands on those springs.
