I am pleased to report that we have now completed the rust repairs, and all of the heavy bodywork, and your car has been coated with Evercoat Super Build primer surfacer. Although this is obviously not a total restoration, we spent some time significantly improving the panel fit throughout the car.



Your seats have been enjoying some 5 star treatment in the trim room..

 Bonnet wing emblems had been mounted several times
in a variety of positions

We have now stripped all the old paint and materials from the outer panels. Several areas had lots of bondo hiding old accodent damage, as well as a few areas of rust that will have to be dealt with prior to the repainting process.
