Remember this?

After many hours sorting out crash damage, and rippled panels, it now looks like this...

Posted Image

Smoke grey on the main body, old english white roof, cab, and interior, it looks sweet!!

Soon to be prepping and painting this...

Posted Image

Simon nash's clubby estate, we sand blasted it first to see what we had to work with, must say its a very honest shell, nothing to worry about, finished welding in the rear quarter, got a crease out of the opposite rear quarter above the rear arch, repaired the rear doors...

Posted Image

Starting on front door repairs, they will be sand blasted, and reskinned/repaired where needed before everything is given a once over before prep and paint, this is gonna be one sweet lookin shell when its sittin in its new coat!

Thanks for looking!
