Had to cut away quite a lot of crusty outer body and arch but the inner wells and strut towers are good and solid. Will clean, treat and make sure they stay that way before I fit the fibre glass body.

Tucked up in it's new home till it goes off for cage fabrication. Lots to come out the dash still.

Prop shaft going in tomorrow to be shortened. If I redo the front to rear brake lines....I could take this for a spin!

At least you don't have to worry about having no where to display the tax now!

£254 then I need to add door bars and a harness bar too.

Propshaft fits lovely after initial panic I got the wrong half shortened!

Time to think about that wing.

Shifted the car over to work so I can get some time on it.

Will sort the brake lines and give it a whirl!
