Nearly done :clap:

Big shout out to Jay for doing all the body work!
Fair few surprises thrown in but Jay managed to get everything done.
Absolute legend and top bloke!
So glad I sent it up to him as the car has turned out better than expected!

Looks great!!
Shame I can't see some previous pics to refresh my memory of what you had to work through. Are you going stock wheels or something else?

Regards

Thanks for all the replies....
Going stock wheels
Wayne my intention was to have her ready for the clubs show and shine, but still needs seats reupholstered and door cards fixed. Also needs a bit more done mechanically to get it ready for rego (probably will take it Frank Tedesco, however last time I spoke to him he told me to throw the SU's in the rubbish bin lol). On top of this we are going on a family holiday so it looks like she won't be ready by then.

Thinking of keeping it now.... will regret it if I sell it, and have put so much work in to get it where it is would be a shame for someone else to finish it off and enjoy it.
Also so sick of the time wasters, wankers and dickheads who want the car for nothing :shock:
