Hehe I did make good progress but it will be slowing down come winter. Next spring I hope to do bodywork and hopefully spray it one color

Some progress pics on my 1965 Viva HA:

Restored my instrument cluster as best I could and added a temp gauge from a vauxhall Victor cluster.

Stripped the entire car to get ready for some bodywork and high build primer. Lots of repair work to do.

Waiting on some brake and radiator parts to get it running and moving again.

Hopefully make some more progress before real cold weather sets in and snow falls

Looks good - though I suspect that tent will be covered with snow soon. :)

Yes it will, that's why I need to get the vauxhall moving under its own power so I can get it out of the way. That tent is where I do my remote car starter installs all winter.
