Default The Yellow Peril 20 Years On

As the old girl is now 20, it seemed like a good time to give her a make over. The paintwork was suffering badly because I stupidly put caustic soda into the washer bottle to unblock the gunge in it when it failed an MOT for non-working washers - don't know what I was thinking at the time - but anyway, a repair shop in Tamworth - Car Body Express - said they could do a full respray but it would take a while, as they would do it between insurance repairs etc. So three months after she went in I collected her on Monday 11th Dec, and this is what she looks like now, chip free, dent free and looking lovely.









Cant tell you how chuffed I am with the finish. Can't wait to be able to show her off again.
