Henry'b's silver shadow wreck.



how many resto's does a young lad need?

Anywhoo here she is in all her rot ridden glory.



The front floors are rotten through thanks to a cracked windscreen seal and absence of door seals.








The body has suffered over the years, a blotchy restoration in the 90s has caused an unending number of rot issues.
