Looking good
Mind if I ask where those seats came from please? I'm still considering a thinner replacement set to give me a bit more leg room in my mx5. Thanks.

edit: the rest of the car looks good... not so sure about that fog pimple

It's taken a while but it's finally in the paint booth ready for the first coat of primer.

Bonnet stays or props are a essential part of most cars but can some times be a real pain when it come to fixing them in place.
Usually the wind or a wrong move dis-lodges them and you end up getting "eaten" by the falling bonnet.


I fixed a bonnet stay on this car in the normal way.
Stows flat along the bulkhead.



Hinges up to support the bonnet.



Except this stay goes through the hole in the bonnet used for the bonnet fixing pins.
This makes for a very steady fix and as this stay has a hole drilled in the end the fixed bonnet pin slide through it and makes a very secure fixing which will not fail until the pin is pulled.



Not quite as good as my seat belt stay but it's simple, it works and I sure somebody else will borrow the idea at some point!

Got sent this clip of the car being driven out of the paint shop.

It looks odd as I am driving it while sat on a up-turned plastic bucket!!
