Well im getting there. Painted the shell. Can hopefully fit the wood tomorrow. At the moment I'm stripping the doors for painting. Stripped the front bumper and panel for painting. Just put some bits back on like the steering, handbrake throttle etc...

Iv painted the engine and popped it back in. Gold seal gearbox fitted aswell. Paper work was right. Took all day to clean them. Don't think they had ever been done before.

You will get there, slow and steady.
Don't have a time to put it on the road as that will go out the window.
Be all you can be

Ideally it's needs to be done by spring as im buying a house that's needs gutting. Thanks for the advice tho. I'm sure my list will get shorter and shorter and shorter. Surprising what you can get done one day but so little progress on others.

Iv over done it lately and have knackered myself out. But here's some progress. Engine running aswell. Loads of little jobs done and loads more to do. Underside all painted now. Rear wings on. Lots of little things.

Engine running. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=B5WQjZFhk7k

Need new clutch linkage and throttle cable to get it driving.

Take it easy for a little while, the car will still be there when you've recovered. It's looking great but the link to the vid says it's private and permission is needed to view :(
