Thanks for trying mate.

I will continue to take photos and load sometime soon.

I have been removing paint from trim that goes around rear glass and top of door opening.

Blasted fuel tank straps.

See if I can refurbish the seat belts this weekend.

Have made great progress.

Body is painted and looks fantastic.

The vinyl top is on.

The brake lines have been done . I had to make up 3 new ones.

I took the correct rusty/dirty diff out and cleaned/ painted it. Put it back in and am now assembling the brake shoes.

Had to buy new rotors for the front, they arrive on Monday.

Get the headliner in next , have got bows in and hanging in car.

Real keen to get engine in.
