Alfa 33 bonnet respray
The 33 had suffered some serious sun damage on one side making the laquer go 'milky'. I flatted it back and resprayed through a gun with cellulose primer, polyester basecoat and single pack clear coat.

Fiat Grande Punto Service on the cheap.
A fairly full service, with genuine parts on the Fiat Punto for about £45 all in!
The GP is in that sweet spot of age where genuine parts are just gathering dust on dealers shelves, as owners of aged cars no longer visit.
I used about £15 worth of quality Fuchs Supersyn engine oil along with oil filter at £5, cabin filter at £6, air filter at £5 and a set of plugs at just £13.60.
