Well, it been a long while since I updated this topic, basically, when I got it resprayed in 2007/2008, I was not happy with how it turned out, lost interest with it and put it in the back of the garage in 2009 and there it stayed until 2011.

I got it strippped down to the bare shell, and completely rebuilt, new floor, wings, scuttle, front panel, bonnet, A panels, sills, doors, steps, pillars,rear quarter panels, rear valence and boot floor all replaced.

Just out of the paint shop last week, new MOT and a new tax disc, took it out today for a run to see how its going, few small issues to deal with due to it being laid up for 3 years, but overall, much better this time round.

We will see if it pleases me this time !!!!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing
