well sent my RH cups off to mike the polisher on sunday and went to collect them today, he's done an excellent job on them seeing as they were badly kerbed and corroded, only had the dish polished and i'm going to paint the centers and he even gave me a free bottle of wax to protect the dish :rthumb:

the entire car has to be flattened and polished, built up interior and exterior, need to order lights, adjust the coilovers . THEN its off for its mot which i am expecting to cost a bit as the car has lay for just about a year now so something must need replaced, insure the car, tax it and get it all set for its first show which is in 10 days time
