Your work looks really good, and you are moving very quickly with the metal work. Nice job, i'm sure looking forward to see it as you move forward.

Thanks Guys, its starting to look half decent again now.
Ive asked the panel beater to finish it by the end of the year, so still seems on track atm.
I will have to ask him about the windows Bill, he's been in the shop quite a few years so maybe someone didn't pay him for work on a bus? lol

Your work is coming together nicely. With all of the British motor logos on the wall hopefully a Mercury head or walking Cougar will adorn the shop wall after this project. :thumbup:

Have reached the first milestone now of all the metal bodywork cutting, grinding and welding completed.
The car is into the body shop next door for any dints, filling and primer application.
