well i havent posted much latley but have been busy on the 412

i striped all the new metal and gave it 2 coats of por15 nice messy job lol



and gave some bits a few coats as well



the i covererd the whole front and back inner arches with seam seal to stop any water geting anywhere and it acts as a good stone chip



its also been shultz thats been sprayed on but i aint got a pick of that

i then started to prep the rear arch with its first layer of filler



then rebuilt the rear suspension while the filler was going off



then the last few days have been getting to this





havent done much filler work befor quite happy how its turned out

i can see a mot in the next 2 weeks

not going to bother spraying it till next year so not to botherd about the preping work just yet will do that in the summer

Interesting front end treatment, is this a 411.5 then? :smoke: Should look like a prototype similar to what's in Wolfsburg on the front end, nice one! Good to see one being saved! :tup:
