Lovely build thread by the way.

Thanks..yes playing it safe with a commercial grey..although the shade is not common should suit the van tho once all the mix of parts are added to compliment each other :-)

Well Friday has arrived but i have to disappoint with no presents..mainly down to the painter having other priority work to sort and also i had to Mot my daily straight after work..so my weekly visit to the shop would of been to late ..nothing like a bit of suspense to keep us alert..just as well I'm patient and can hold on to the big reveal !!..

 

I can offer this as a sweetner ...a customers A35 recently painted after a full restoration at the paintshop last week...

Keeping us in suspence.. I actually logged in 6 times today for the reveal.
Lovely looking A35 though.
Also lovely looking workshop with some lovely looking tools in there as well..

Gives you more time to clean up some of the little parts to re fit....
