This was what my car looked like when i bought it a fews years ago, and we welded up the seal.





then we added the wheels.

and the engine lid


After his little bump we took the bumper off and the zoom tube


then we found a leak from the window rubber so had to strip it out and rip up the nasty sound felt stuff












Floor pan was painted today


Chrome strips have been removed ready for the respray



New body panels all have been painted






Nice new bumper
