Great work Will! I didn't realise the extent of the work you had done. That will be a lovely car when complete.
Keep the updates coming!

Cheers Matt, I have very little patience with computers so it’sa bits of a rush thread, and thanks for the box, I think I’ll put that one in the yellow one while the sprint one is getting a refurb.

Impressively fast progress there.
I do like Vermillion, I know from experience (not on my car unfortunately) what a real treat for the retina fresh vermillion paint is.

I found this to be a better option then welding up the old sunroof as the roof was rusty and dented.
