After only 6 months and 4000 miles the front suspension
had nearly lost all of its paint. Very bad.
I spent a long time stripping it all down, cleaning the
rust off and painting it all up with POR 15. It
should never rust again now!
This is before:
After stripping the front GTM wiring
loom, I thought I'd better have a look at the engine bay
wiring. As in the front there is a lot of unnecessary
connections and meters of useless wiring, basically just
forming links. As with the front, I stripped it
all down and re did the lot. I now know where
everything goes and its a lot neater.
When I sprayed black edges around the
rear Perspex screens I sprayed the body work and not the
plastic. It was much easier to do at the time, but
I have found that rain water gets caught in between the
screens and body work and looks awful. I re
sprayed the black edges, but this time onto the Perspex.
It now looks much better and the rain isn't
noticed. I also spaced the screens off the body
work with o rings. This allows any water to drain

suspension package, which put simply uses pillow joints
and cam bolt for adjustment rather than the original
