Paint work was someting I had put
off doing properly for years so rather than do it myself I sent it to be painted profesionally. It was stripped of 12 coats of paint and undercoat.

One of the first jobs I carried out was to fit a new Spyder Chassis this lasted for 10 years before failing the MOT. a Lotus Galvanised chassis seemed the best as now origionality was becomeing more important than practicality.
