    This is why I like to say if you see rust on the surface, it's at least 2x worse where you can't. Really though, for an area that has zero drainage and no pretreatment, that wasn't bad considering it's age and what not.

    Yep!
    Today I temporarily put all the body panels back and had it transported from my tiny garage to my workshop where I can finish it off.

    Ok, back to the story....

    Since photobucket removed the image links a few years ago, this thread became more or less useless, BUT,....I think it is important that I finish the story of the build of this car. So watch this space.
    So, I will either post up links to the full diary in pdf format, or redo the entire thing!
    How close are we to completing the build? Well, I'm hoping next summer will be its maiden voyage. Certainly pushing this build everyday.

    Its been a long time. The build has evolved far more than I ever imagined it would. Pushing the boundaries so to speak. And it all takes time.

    Thanks to all the "old timers" who have followed from the start. Hope the new 'uns will enjoy it!

    Andy.

    When I talk to friends about the types of things people do with these cars (in terms of modding), I always mention this one as a bit of a legend. I am so glad you're still working on it and look forward to all further updates.
