Well here it is - all ready for reassembling.

I’ve left the screens in and headlining in. Vinyl roof was fine (and early one so seamed and hard to replicate). If it ain’t broke no need to fix it !

Lots of work ahead !!

Great progress, well done! Did I see that you fitted OE sills, if so that's a rare thing!

Hi

Yes it’s quite bright and fresh purple “esk” ☺️

It came with 2 OEM full sills and 2 OEM steel front wings so it made the repair work easier. We also put in an OEM O/S inner sill as these still available.

I bought a pattern complete outer rear panel from Rimmers and an O/S rear arch repair panel from the club shop.

There was no boot lid with car and 3 out 4 doors were knacked. I managed to get a boot lid and 4 doors for 100 bucks so that was good, although one of the doors was scrap to be honest - they all still needed an awful lot of prepping.

Pleased with how it looks - not a common colour with it being only available option for a short while.

It’s looking great
I found the best bits was fitting back up and unwrapping those parts hidden away for years I’d forgotten about.
Everything fitted was a step closer driving me on.

Yes been speaking to Steve - glad he’s doing ok

It’s a Driffield car supplied by Armstrong Massey near the show ground

Not really left the area to my knowledge - only on road 6 years out of 46 years.

Just an update on my Magenta sprint resto.

Time is my enemy unfortunately but we’re getting there.

Engine about ready for install and interior already to go back in with door cards etc.

Wiring loom in and ready to connect up.

Going to brush paint interior tub as had some Magenta mixed to brush on.

I’ve got the old exhaust cleaned up and that can go back on. Think I’ll get a repair patch on the rear section for the money it’d cost - see pic of rear section as is.

Some pics - not necessarily in order
