Hey Jey, nice to see a new project started. :D
Keep up lots of pics as it progresses.

After looking at your dash, it makes me realise how much more I still need to remove from mine :cry: :cry:

Does look better in the grey already.

I knew a bloke that would use a loaf of bread as "filler" in sills and then bog over that :shock: :shock: :shock:
