Being a glutton for punishment and also wanting to make a few quid to spend on Paddy i have taken on a 79 Special which is owned by Will one of the lads from our Heathrow hangar.
He got delivered to the workshop at the beginning of the week by one of his mates. Overall condition is not that good and by the looks of it nearly every external panel needs to be replaced along with both outer sills and i think some of the inners. The floors were badly pushed in but a large block of wood sorted those out.
The scuttle looked good funnily enough so less work to do there then????? NOT it was rusty underneath
The r/h rear arch is toast though
Very poor picture but the r/h heelboard end is not looking good, its bulging out
The l/h rear quarter had been replaced in the past due to a shunt but not done well as they forgot to sort this out
and all of the spot welds had holes through them, very strange
L/h inner sill in the companion bin is crusty
L/h door step is gone as well
and some pony repairs to the lower flitches both sides
