Making some progress with car this week.
New front panel (courtesy of Bodyworx) has been welded into place.
Sills, which were previously held in place with 3 self tappers at each side have now been fully welded into place.
Holes in floor have been patched.
Inner wing panels have been replaced where required.
Timing belt replaced.
Fitted radiator back into car tonight and got engine running again.
Still loads to do, some more welding to be done tomorrow.
Will post some pics soon.

Hi Scott,
Thats what I'm hoping but will see how it goes over next 2 weeks.
Needs a respray too but that can happen after.
Got some more work done this morning.
When you collecting your HB?
You going to take it to Louden with you?

Scott, may just take you up on that offer.
What engine you putting in the HB?
I'm assuming that the HB was in good order when you bought it...apart from the knackered engine of course!!

Anyone got any tips on cleaning these wheels without going down the road of blasting?
