Come out really well!

Was that all elbow grease or did you use a rotary?

first picture is mostly mud and the middle part is silver paint from the other car. The second picture, I first wiped it down with a damp cloth then sprayed it with soapy water and wiped it down with a clay bar and removed most of it, then polished it using autoglym polish and polished it by hand maybe did 2 to 3 minutes wiping it down.

How's the car holding up in general? You've got a 1.9JTD in that, right?

-edit- Toyota are auctioning off a couple of press cars for Red Nose day.

A Gran Turismo inspired Supra

And the world's only Toyota Picnic Turbo (basically a MPV with a sports car engine, which is a Celica GT)

1.9td not jtd, mine doesnt have electronic injection. Car is running fine, just replaced the thermostat this week as it got stuck open, bit of a headache for an amateur wannabe mechanic (lol), but I did it one day without any leaks and/or chopped fingers. Other than that, It's running fine, nothing leaks, engine noise is a bit louder than normal but its always been that way and I take good care of it, I serviced every serviceable part it has since I owned it, all filters/oils/fluids/starter motor/injectors and never had any trouble.

One should note that I spent way too much money on it, well its the life of messing with cars, but now its almost ready how I want it, just need to get hold of abarth front bumper and side skirts and spray them to be 99% ready

No I understand fully . I'm hoping to start messing with my next car. My corsa is just too far gone for me to mod it. Things are just about working on it and somehow I doubt my amature DIY skills would improve it in any way.

I was asking as I've been looking at an Alfa 147 which has a a 1.9JTD in it. My family have had A couple of Multiplas with the same engine but due to weight I can't really judge its performance.

I'd love to get a 147 as my next car, If i manage to get a decent job I'm looking for a golf mk6 or mk7 if the budget allows it ( a gti version if the price is right ).

Well performance isn't really there, mine is the 75 hp version and does 0-60 in a mind boggling 16 seconds lol and gets stuck at about 120 km/h. I managed a 140 max but on a really long road. Handling is quite nice, and parts are quite easy to get hold of.

I see this as my first car, not as the car that needs to be perfect, I learn the most that I can on it, like mechanical stuff, painting, bodywork, bleeding brakes, replacing oils/fluids and filters and how stuff works in general. Better than learning on a newer car that everything you touch can give an error code lol
