Good thinking, you can rebuild the old engine at a later date once you have done the rest :goodideasign:

I was up at the shed for a few hours today and did a bit off poking about found a rust hole in the chassis leg not that big but i need to sort it before i replace the brake and fuel lines that run in front off it

Image

not so bad when this is the only hole in the whole shell

so i started to clean out the original fuel system so i had to remove the petrol tank which sits in the boot

i was expecting to see rot here as this was a comman problem area and my other ha had it replaced completely

Image

the red you see is the original red oxide primer

i am well chuffed

When you say new front end what do you mean wings ? Slam ? Valance ?
