So I took it off the road to do the rear valance...

so far...

 

New doors, front end, sills, floors, boot and rear valance, repairs to rear arches, bought alloys... then sold them as I will put steels on (more on that another time) lots of shiny bits, stainless rc40, handles, boot hinges, indicator covers,  bumpers, radio, walnut dash, grille

 

Coming soon...

Seat retrim, steering wheel and fingers crossed some paint!

Now back on all 4 wheels, steering attached and rolling :) must adjust the handbrake next so I can push it out the garage and down the slope without crashing!

 

Engine and box have been split to replace baulk rings as I had an issue with going into 2nd when it was on the road... oh and I might be buying another one tonight...
