looks reasonably solid - and you seem to have many spares - or you are a crazy fast painter!

Looking good, Bob.

I'm glad you saved this rare estate. At one stage it looked like it might be broken for parts.

It couldn't actually have gone to a better man to restore and preserve it. Well done sir! 8)

Looks like you have your work cut out there Bob, are you blasting all your suspension components? the paint finish looks really good.

Yeah, wire wheeled them, then blasted them, then sprayed black hammerite.
