toms new project

Postby Perfectpaintwork » Sun Jul 23, 2017 8:04 am

this is my 2010 transit been sat in the garage for last 18 months so its time she was given some tlc.
so far ive fitted fibre glass sport skirts, lowered front springs, straighten leaf springs, debadged front grille, done the dents and fitted new wheels/tyres.
over this weekend ive painted inside the rear in its new colour.
over the new few weeks will get it sanded and painted and hopefully some checker plate inside rear
