Hi everyone

Attached are some photos of the progress on the racing machine.

I've just finished a week's work on the body so thought I'd share some progress.
The first job was to cut out and replace some serious rust in the RHS B pillar, followed by bare metal respray of all the removable panels.
They are now all up to undercoat stage awaiting the remainder of the body shell which still has a bit of work to do.

As PR91 had picked up earlier, it had been pranged with an eary model front use as a replacment with some "shortcuts" taken in the repair work, only to be discovered upon disassembly. The rusted B pillar had a lso been "fixed" at some stage with birdwire and liquid nails :cry:

No need for apology YP. Your'e just showing us the "bigger picture". Always in admiration of you guys out there doing this "skills and hard yakka" stuff on limited resources but plenty of enthusiasm.
