    Plenty of cleaning to be done here as well but first priority is the bodywork.

    Engine bay needs a good clean next mate. Let me know if you need a hand sorting that bonnet out too.

    Personally, it would depend on your plans for her. If you are going to keep her, that chip would need to get professionally filled if you wanted it perfect as the paint would need blending. If you just want to tidy it up for a bit and sell her on, then I would rub the rust back till I hit clean metal. This would mean making the area bigger than it currently is before rust treating the metal, and then filling it with paint in layers. Once the paint is slightly proud, I would rub it back slightly with 1500 wet and dry and buff it back up. It would be noticiable but not as bad as it is now.

    If you are keeping it, I would either respray the entire bonnet if it has other damage, or use those chipaway guys.

    Well the front bumper needs respraying for sure so I might extend that to include some or all of the bonnet.
