I think you've got a bit more to do than that, even based upon your normal work-rate. I'm guessing that some of that rust will require a partial strip-down and welding, both the parts you can see and the parts that are hidden/filled over.

Good luck with it!

Keep the updates coming, is it worth sorting the shell first before anything else just to make sure it's sound before investing any more time in the tidying up of the other stuff?

there is LOTS to do to be honest but i have time , just dont have the money to do the bodywork at the moment due to learning to drive etc so i have spent some money on the engine getting it running right so it mechanically sound for me to drive around for a bit untill i get the money / parts in to fix up the bodywork

As always with your work, a really good read, I think i'm losing count of the cars you've had now.

You've brought back some gloss to the paintwork which makes it look a lot better and taking off a couple of fog lights helps as well imho. Hope you pass your test so you can drive the car (legally) that you have been working on.

Good too see you looking at the big stuff. It'll be good to see it with a solid structure for the rest of your handiwork to shine.

This car has so much potential to be an extremely cool retro Ford. Love the colour too, especially against the Black arches and bumpers....

Pleeeeeeease keep this one and finish to completion

Once that structured is sorted it will go on to be a great car. I absolutely love people keeping these cars on the road it will be a classic.
