Question on the POR-15 stuff. When I coated the trans-am parts I used the Metal Prep and Top coat, and all has been fine(so far).
Having a quick look thourgh online iunstructions it looks like I missed a step. POR-15 Rust Preventative coating, I wonder how important that is. The metal prep neutralses the rust, but perhaps the extra step will make an even better job of it.

Having just seen a thread on MOCGB concerning the addition of E10 to petrol from 2021, it may be a good time to replace the whole fuel line set up.

In fact all of us should remember that older cars will suffer from E10 additive.

I thought there was a thread on here on this subject but could not find it, maybee it was on one of those 'Autofeed' thingys.

Cleaned up the metal cups that sit on the top of the rear springs, also the tank straps.

Primer and then stonechip stuff. Once that is dried I will do the other side. Probably tomorrow evening now.

Don’t be daft. Sarah will have a 45 def mirror positioned front and rear to show how clean and sorted the car is underneath.

Besides, just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be done nicely. Remind me not to buy a car from a bodger like you!!!! 😝😛😜

A lot of the tank is covered by the exhaust heat shield. The exhaust comes out the side, so don't really need this heat shield. I have cleaned it up and painted it as plan to fit it as a little more extra protection for the tank.

Cleaned up the hole where the tank sits. I have some aluminium coming to cover the access hole.

Got done metal to cover the hole. The patterned stuff was cheaper than plain. It's hidden under the carpet anyway. I do like the look of it. Drill and tap it with foam gasket, will make a nice job of it. IMG_20210111_130841.jpg

Sill waiting on the shocks being delivered from Rockauto via FedEx. Its been at Stanstead since Sunday. Had a text yesterday from FedEx saying it would be delivered today. I checked status and it was still at Stanstead and released, so was expecting it to be at the local depot first thing this morning. However for the first time ever FedEx havn't delivered on the day (usually earlier) FedEx did deliver something else earlier, so the driver is about.
I also ordered some electronics from Farnell last night, shipped via UPS to arrive today between 10.30 and 14:30, that didn't arrive today either. Usually they arrive on the day they say too.

Only thing I can think has happened is this...

Would the Eibachs from your 4th gen fit?
While searching for something else in the shed I did come across my old rear Eibachs.

They lowered the car by quite alot.

I think even though discovering I kept them I'm still going to paint the old original Camaro ones to put back on.
