I'll put a few more images on later today and as she goes back together.Engine in already in but not yet fired up, first job tomorrow once back from paint is isofix in the back seats and fuel tank on before tuning her around, complete the plumbing and fill with running in oil. It's looking like the international will be her first real run should I succeed in the rebuild intime.
Not sure if you remember my article in the bulletin 3 years ago but I took on the car in the hope that I wouldn't have a full restoration on my hands but the reality of all restorations is once you start, there's no turning back and work, expenses and expected issues triple at the very least!
Optimism got me through though and I'm extremely happy with what i have acheived.
Watch this space!

Huge thank you to Dave T for mentioning Ken and Lynn, the paint could not be better!

Wow, it looks great - and the colour looks very original. As you'll see at International weekend, there are many shades of Alice Blue, from nearly turquoise to nearly silver.....
Looking forward to seeing it in a few weeks' time
