now unsure on the cosworth spoiler how ever progress has been made.....

Made a start on sanding my RS2000 side skirts today , trying diffirent methods to discover whats best

first i strarted with 120 sandpaper on the

and the second i used 240 wet and dry

i found that wet and dry was the best way to prepare them ready for paint how ever i need to get some 120 in wet and dry first so will get that today.

here are some pictures

some pics of the current work going on with the car which is rebuilding the rear rusted passenger side which was fabricated from old panels etc to make a new wing on the escort , is coming along nicely and credit to RPP Racing which allowed me with his time and his help to carry out the work , www.RPPracing.co.uk is his website if any one need any cheap work carried out a top man!

ive sanded back some of the filler and shaped it etc, have gave it a quick coat of primer for now to keep the bare metal from getting surface rust , the shape is there just need to sand some more filler off and get rid of bits i dont need then its pretty much there ready to sand that section of the arch

should be cutting a pannel out of a escort to also do the top of the wheel arch which also needs doing cheers
