Great, another Estate rescued. :D

I see that this is your first post, why not introduce yourself via the "Say Hello" thread elsewhere on this Forum. Looking forward to reading about yet another HC Estate rescue mission. :lol:

Welding is great fun, it's a bit tricky to do at first though. :lol:

Well done on rescuing it, surface rust as you say but otherwise looks pretty solid.

How've you been getting on with the resto?

Apart from removing the interior I have done very little to the Estate due to work and other commitments. However, I now have a couple of weeks leave which should allow me to make some headway. I can't wait to jetwash that engine bay and the wheel arches. :D
