Took a few pictures under the dash of the cowl and it doesn't look to bad!
Started to strip paint off the roof, seems there are a few coats and it will take a bit of paint stripper to get it clean, the roof channels are reasonablly clean with a little surface rust.
Well most of the paint has been removed, damage is rear tail light panel stuffed, will get Jeremy from Image classics to replace that as its a bit out of my skill set, the right quarter panel looks not bad some small dents will fix, left quarter panel has some damage to it has been bogged up, looks like it has 10kgs of bog, unbelievable, might have to cut out a section and weld in a new piece, have to remove bog and see what I have got the rest of panel OK, boot lid best panel, roof OK had small ripple so filled with small amount of body filler, looks big but spread out to keep feathered with surround, roof channels have some areas of rust, Jeremy will be doing these two sections also.
Bonnet almost stripped, looks clean, but there is a small section where the panel bends really easily, what could be causing that? is the bonnet skin welded to the struts? Will be doing door tomorrow, will apply etch primer then look at fixing the trouble areas, lets hope not much else.
Both fenders not bad, small dents that have shit load of spray putty applied,will remove that and fix. I recon the front end had a prang the fenders don't match.
Anyone have any advise or suggestions, I'm open to anything!!!!!
been slow going lately, redone sump, removed and restoring starter and power steering recon will be re-installed soon.
Body work ongoing, will be taking to Image classics soon for panel replacements/repairs.
(Just wire brushed the old crappy paint off, will recoat in original black)
