Just been through all you pics Bob, not sure how I've missed them but i am suitably impressed with your work, i dont think i could have bothered with some of what you have done, :respekt: it did make me feel a bit queasy seeing all that welding, bought back flash backs of mine.
I like your rear end and grill they have both worked out well, did you just happen to find some lights and work with it or was this planned out?
Did you get your dash top recovered Bob, it looks like it, if so did you do it?
I notice you went for seals from rare spares, is that because the UK stuff advertised doesn't fit?
Keep up the good work :D

Hi Fred, way too many hours, more than I'd care to count...but it's a labour of love

Hi Rizzo, the front and rear were planned out, bought everything specifically for the job, and no, I haven't had the dash top covered, the one in the photos is a one I bought, a pretty damn good one too, although it probably won't be used on this project, hoping to repair the original one, and get it covered to match the rest of the interior, which at this point is a closely guarded secret...
Regarding the door seals, East Kent trim don't do HB door seals, Rare Spares is the place for them, got them for my white one, and they're bloody good
