hi there Ben

the plans are to get all the welding done and get Scrappy Bug thru an MOT .... the respray job will be at the end of Feb/early March next year when i will have the funds to do it

i'd like to stick with the original colour (a dark green, similar to British racing green) and get some nice shiny chrome bumpers and trim Very Happy

i love ur photography btw ..... awesome pics

Very Happy That rear inner wing is actually pleasingly damned good for a car that is almost 45 years old

a couple of small areas needed cutting out and welding, but other than that, it was good and with origional paintwork YAY! cheers
