thanks for the comments.......yesterday i did bit of colouring in on the body,did the rear drivers arch and boot area,new paint went on well,but the colour tone is out,,new paint look more redy,but think thats just new new paint compared to 37yr weathered paint,but good compound paste and buffing will sort some blending in.......then i sorted out colourtune and timing,colortune burning blue and 10 degree on timing and tickover around 950rpm...not done test drive might leave that till later on,,,give it good boot :mrgreen:

alloy tank needs to be chop about 4 inch of the back so it clears the valence support panel where the tank bolts on too...no biggy but more exspence

That is good news, remember those tanks are the same throughout the Dolly range, so there could be a reasonable market for the builder if the finished product receives a good review on here, with some good pictures, rough prices and a fitting guide...............

Good luck.
