    The fuel pump had seized and I finally got it running after 4 new pumps and 4 new injectors! I think she may have put sugar in the tank to!

    Ordered the fabric to retrim the seats which should be 2-3 weeks, this was the last bit I've been searching for, probably 2 years I think! Really pleased that it's now available again

    You ever going to add some pictures to enhance your posts. I think your image posting is quite lame! We/I like pictures, I get a sense of being at work with you.....

    It was slowly stripped and parts bagged and bits sent off to powder coaters so they were ready to go on once it was repainted




    Bits back from blasters



    Then powder coated in semi matt finish

    Drivers door had a small rust spot so it was cut out and a piece made and welded in



    Each panel was done as a seperate project as such








    Bonnet had been repaired before so was bare metalled
