My 1500TC has turned into a bigger job than first envisaged 🤣🤣
I’ve been working on the body work over the summer and resprayed the complete car in Cellulose, it’s come out pretty well, probably a few more polishes to get it shining nicely.
Now tackling the underside on a body roller ( great piece of kit!).
Just sent the prop shaft off for refurbishing and got the wheels / rocker / timing cover back from Redditch Powder Coaters ( highly recommend them).
So not far off now starting to put all the bits back on the car, complete with new carpet set that was in a bag with the car when I got it!
Hopefully see some of you on the stand at the NEC show when I visit there.
😀

They always end needing way more work AND money than
first envisioned :D

Is that Maple?
