Recommended Posts

It's been a while that I have posted or done anything on my car it's been a hard few years in life. But had enough and I want the car finished and ready for me to get married in.

 

This was the old one I got this from Phil J, unfortunately, dies from rust.near seat belt points.

The engine bay has been stripped of all the smoothing as it was all flaking off. under the smoothing and a ton of filler there were a few bad bits which have now been sorted I will upload more pictures once I find a better photobucket
