firstly the dash.
got bored of the standard dash all marked and scrapped so started picking at the rubbery coating and soon had anyone who would sit in the car douing the same(took bout 1 week of finger picking to remove)



didnt realise it was as glossy looking underneath







then gave it all a sanding with some wet n dry to key it in ready for painting









now a few coats of primer and more sanding





Then it was time for some painting.
was undescided about a colour for ages but ended up going for Nissan silver and i like it alot.
(Thanks Stevie)









hope you all like.

next will be the wheels.

Alloys

When i bought the car it was fitted with some nice volk racing challenge wheels, but the previous owner hadn't been very nice to the so iv taken a week off work this week to sort them out.

here is the before image's of the worst of the 4 wheels( believe me the others are not much better)








and this is the 1st wheel after a light sanding to get the worst of the scratches out and surface corrosion.
(took alot longer than i thought)

Im going to be painting them white.







will keep adding as i go along.
