Thanks Martin , I was finally convinced to do one. Perhaps a few years too late as the forum is pretty quiet. But the old faithful are still around

Itís a huge task, you know better than most. Except you were clever and got a spit...


Yep cars super fresh mate, it didnít need doing if Iím honest. But I love tinkering around with it, I even wonder if I hadnít done this would I be bored by now driving it ? !

Is it finished?! of course not.

Thanks for the nice positive comment mate.

Thanks Matt,

This is old work , I’m just posting it now

It’s a great job to do yourself, very rewarding. Enjoy it mate. It has plenty of ups and downs just stick with it.

Oh and double the budget and treble the time frame

Really impressed with the finish you achieved with that thing but for that price I think I'll have to stick to my wire wheel

Why struggle... you can always sell it on. Just a thought, a piece of kit like that you would have no probs in moving on.
