nice to see her getting some love, would be cool to see progress pictures as you go. Whats the plans as far as colour goes? Gotta say she is a heck of a lot straighter than my ratter bellett!

No ideas on colour yet mrfibbles but most likely a solid non metallic. Will be plenty of pics of the build. plan is full resto starting with back to bare metal and plenty of rust repairs ( not to bad for its age)anybody had experience with paint removal places in Adelaide?

check the boot or the back of the rear seat. original paint usually found there and sometimes in good nick.
