then start work on the bonnet support catch bracket, it’s minging from oil that the CA has spat out everywhere

Liberally cover everything in black hammerite and that’s another job done.

Also started cleaning up the cross member as it has a covering of about 1cm of oily gunk so give it a soaking in engine cleaner

Attack with tooth brush and old socks and it’s a good way there although still got around the steering rack and under the power steering pipes to do but it’s already a lot better
