I suppose i should explain myself a bit. I've commited myself to repairing one panel every weekend until i get them all done and then spray a final coat over the entire car.
The roof, tops of the rear quarters and tailgate have been stripped and repainted previously and i'm getting brand new Door Skins. The dog legs will be rebuilt and possibly a new tailgate striker panel.

I'll post up all the pics i took every monday. My car was stolen and recovered on 07/07/1990 and it's always been below average in the body area.

As a final episode i'll take the engine out and respray the bay and detail the engine again. Stay Tuned.

Not a real lot to report this week as i stripped back the inspection plates and scuttle panel... just a small amount of rust in the scuttle panel. All were stripped, etched, primed and painted...also fitted the new radiator a couple of weeks ago.

Me wishes it was... i'm trying to keep as many original panels on the car as possible as all of them are. But, the door skins have to be turfed.

Ok another weekend, another panel. I'm starting to think i've bitten off more than i can chew but i must admit that the guards are difficult to work with when you have to recreate entire sections. The fact that i went out on saturday night and got smashed didn't help either. So i took today off and got the guard in color. Rust repairs were a PITA.

Looks good mate. How'd you go getting that curve on the top of the guard nice and neat?
