More photy's as promised, inside the car, the bonus is the rear sub frame is worth saving.











Thats all for now folks, Paul

Well We Are The Mods,

Anything is repairable just depends on how keen you are, I think mine is really not as bad as the photy's make it look, subframe's now out and all under there is cleaned up. Next is to strip out the front end, subframe complete with engine ect, gonna take the dash and every thing just about off the shell. This will make it easier to handle and easier to prepare and spray.

Good luck with Gizmo, later Paul

Thanks Big_Al_Smith ,

You have inspired me to go on, if in a few months time if my old wreck looks like yours, well, a happy chap I'll be, Ta!!

Used to live near you, well not far, Kemsing near to Sevenoaks.

All the best and thanks, Paul

It's quite exciting and very daunting when you start these jobs. The mind goes into overdrive thinking how far have I got to go,will I ever finish it?
Keep the pucker up my Dad used to say!

Good luck. Looking forward to seeing more pics!
