It does look like that but is isn't - it is some form of sheet steel :lol:

The interior is out now and there were no more surprises - if you don't count the broken seat rails and lack of diaphragm on the passenger seat.

It went to Hungary in a reasonably unconventional way...

Image

And arrived unscathed :-)

Image

The stripping has started with old fuel and corroded fuel lines being expected but the empty brake drums, except for the wheel cylinders not.

If you're on Facebook you can follow progress here - https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id ... &ref=br_rs

So I'm on the hunt for fuel tank seals and all rear drum brake components if anybody can help me please

The work in Hungary has bee moving at pace for a fortnight now with very interesting results

The lower half of the body and the underside have been media-blasted to find all the rot and previous repairs.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the used repair panel isn't any better than the original. The A-surface panel is usable though
Image

And the repainting has already started

If you're a Facebook user you can see the damage here - https://www.facebook.com/MnMSzerviz/?__ ... gKQ78FgVz8

If that doesn't work search for MnM Szerviz.
