As Scott says, this could be a sister for my car, (barring wheels and interior) good luck with the resto. Where abouts are you based ?

Failing that, install Chrome or Safari browsers way better and faster than Firefox.
Firefox seems to of lost its way of late.

Ah Sheffield, a bit too far to pop over, I'm down in Wiltshire. I must admit yours looks a lot tidier than mine, I'm not doing a full resto at all, just enjoying tinkering with the old girl and keeping her on the road as best I can.  If you can see my avatar, thats the car !

Well, its been some time since I last posted, things have moved on in the right direction but in a steady fashion!

Underside is now done (and that's the thing that gets me through when I'm feeling that I have a mountain to climb!) just got the refurbished drive shafts to go back on, finish the underside of the spare wheel well and a few little odd's and sods to do.

When I started paint prep, found a little rot on both doors so I've replaced them with original second hand parts in better condition, both still needed work but it was work I could tackle as I don't like that Brown stuff!!

So I've now stripped her down to bare essentials and started to sand! Started of with a 80 grit wet and dry and got her up to a 800 grit (going through all the stages!) and now she's as smooth as a babies one at the minute!

Still much more to do but hope you like the pictures so far!
