        Update No 2.

        Pics taken yesterday at bodyshop. New front panels including new rh inner wing. Lh inner wing repair panel. New sills, rh and lh floor panels. Passenger door repaired. Drivers door still to fit repair section and new skin. Rear passenger side wing repair panel in progress. Well impressed by workmanship. Replacement engine currently being built by Enginuity. Should be ready end June. Suspension, steering, brakes etc I am overhauling with new bushes, seals etc.

        Cheers

          Good afternoon John,
          One word springs readily to mind:- PROGRESS. Hope things PROGRESS further.
          Certainly not for the faint of heart, having seen the original "as dragged out" photos.
          Phew!
          Neil.

              Iíve only just seen this John back from the start - so wonderful to see such a project unfold from start to finish - canít wait to see it finished!

              Takes me back to when I did mine 26 years ago, albeit I didnít strip out the dash - that bit scared me just a little too much!

              Cheers

                I know what you mean. See my pic below. Still my biggest concern for the rebuild.

                    UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_4e8.jpg Paid a visit to the bodyshop yesterday. Preparation for painting in progress. See pics below. Incidentally I did not use EJ Ward as I felt they were too far away for regular visits. I ended up using a chap called Gordon Needs who is based in a little town called Alyth which is about 20 minutes north of Dundee. Highly recommend him. He has a website.
