Nice start to the restoration.

Cheers :thumb:

My plans are to restore it upto a very good standard ready for when i can afford the insurance.

Fuel prices aren't a problem as its LPG so even 15mpg is ok at 50p per litre :doublesho

compared to Petrol at 1.21 a litre :tumbleweed:

This is her biggest issue!!

Ray charles and Stevie wonder must of teamed up for this repair!!

There is some evidence of past rust repair in the rear arch N'S'R

this rear panel seems to have taken alot of beating in the cars life.
