I won an irmscher grill on eBay and just fit it. It needs a bit of tlc, looks like it’s been painted badly at some point.
But now that it’s on, I think I prefer the original grill to it… what do you think?
Also, turns out I need a new bonnet as it’s very corroded under the grill 😓

Got to work on the front bumper today, before it started throwing it down 😤
Damage to the bumper reinforcement bar was worse than I thought.

So it’s off the car and I’m giving the new bar a few coats of hard wearing spray paint.

New bar on and the bumper. But I think it’s warped a little as it’s not sitting properly on the front or the drivers side. New one may be in order. But it’ll do for now

Hey guys, gona be a little slow for the next couple of weeks. Had surgery yesterday so I’m still a bit fragile. But got loads of parcels recently so plenty to look forward to

That wasn't a bad pay out all things considered then and gives you a bit of cash to put towards the old girl when you're able to get back on it (y)
Yeah I’m not mad at that. It’s in the body shop next week for bumpers, wheel arch dent and tailgate dents. Just boring at the minute cos I can’t do anything on it. Can barely shuffle around the house 😓
