160 van clean up

Well folks, today I started the clean up and repair of the worst scuffs etc on my van, when I bought it the other week the front n/s wing had a nasty little scuff and dent in on it, which also pulled the bumper out more than where it normally sits -

So I decided it was easy enough to take wing off and fix with removed, this way I could treat wing on inside aswell where the paint had broken -

After straigtning out wing and removing crease I then checked to see if wing fitted better on car which it did with the bumper sitting how it should.

Last week I bought some "hide everything" wheel arches off fleabay which I then gave a coat of plastic primer, coat of british racing green, then 2 coats of pearl black, and 2 coats of laquer -

Arches on car are spotless, but I just like these extensions and think they finish off zrs nicely!
30 on paint if you DIY rather expensive body shop.
Inbetween painting arches I gave the rest of the van a t-cut and a good polish- just used cheap polish although cant mind the name of it, brought the van up really well though -
