Our latest project - 1969 hornet Mk3

Post  annrubenesque on Sun Oct 31, 2010 1:02 pm

Hiya

This is our latest project, dried stored for about 13 years unloved in a garage. Picked it up for next to nothing. As far as we are aware its totally original all round. Just needs a little bit of tlc.,, (dont we all...lol)

Since getter her home, i'v replaced all the brakes as were seized and painted the drums. Here's a few pictures of her so far....

A lot of work has already gone to the bodywork, prioir to us picking it up. The underside has also been looked after, just needs work on the front and suspension pumped up...

I always thought "Pump My Ride!" would be a good sticker to have in the back window, if you could get one done in the same typeface/logo as the MTV "Pimp My Ride" logo used on the TV show.....
