Now with new paint and leather

Recommended Posts

Small update,

Went for my weekly visit tonight,and watched as the windscreen was taken out ! For the record two men three quarters of an hour !

No holes,just a little rust to sort out. While preparing the rest of the car ,a hole was found on the o/s/r sill ,rust cur out,and new repair panel made.

Sunroof out,rear hatch now off. Both doors,bonnet,both bumpers,slam panel and n/s wing off,all glass now off, nearly finished the prep, primer end of the week,

Lol, that would have been true, but after 10 weeks I was forced to give the courtesy car back !

Good things come to those who wait

Nice progress at last, how does the rear panel look welded in place? were you happy with how it looked? I was so paranoid about how the new piece would blend in with the sealant over the seams (etc) trying to get it to look factory lol! they did a superb job though!

 

Nice to keep popping down to see it aint it! :)

It's my workmates dad that's been doing all the panel beating, and I know what a fussy sod he is !

Door and tail shuts are spot on, I know it's a slow job, but the workmanship is first class,

I'm really pleased how at last it's all coming together.

Looks great, looking forward to seeing it done!

 

Out of interest...presume you're running 280mm front brakes, how do you find them with reigning in the performance of the 20VT?
