Hi I picked this up as a shell with all bits to finish,it had a fire in the engine bay in 1988 and was left in a barn until I bought it,needed a new bonnet,A panels,scuttle and dash but the rest including the floor is rust free,I've been working on it for about 9 months on and off and thought it was about time I posted my progress.this was 9 months ago

Subframes fitted and wheels on,not sure if I should paint the outside myself or get it done by a professional (it's abit tight in my garage). Nice to get it rolling though
