When I left the workshop on thursday evening the engine was out wings off and scrapped kept all the lights though never know when someone might be after a set of lights. Bumpers off not to bad nick, one running board fell off but both junk. Bonnet and Engine lid off and in very good condition especially the engine lid. interior removed and kept the seats not to bad just need recovering.

Body off one side bolted so not to bad the other side partially welded so air chisel out. Cheers for the extra lift Rich to get it off.

Front beam off so that it can be stripped and modified.

Most of the above had been done by Vince (Billet 56) before I even arrived at 2:30pm.

So basically it is pretty much all in bits needing a good clean up then some new metal can be welded in to the floor pan to replace all the crap.

Need Wurz to send me the pics he has taken so I can put some more up.

Big thanks to everyone that has been helping me so far especially Vince, Wurz, Rich and Rick.

Just to try and cover everyone's post in one go here goes.

Colour looks like it is now gonna be silver may change my mind as I have at least 4 times already.

No name as yet but I will figure it out at some point.

Whether it was a Paris or wizard windjammer kit it is crap and has been ripped off and chucked.

I know what i'm gonna do just watch this space and in the words of Rolf Harris "Can you tell what it is yet" I have told some people but lets just see how it turns out.....

Nice to meet you Gem and Sam at last.
