Hi Dave

plan sounds good. A bit done each week and before you know, it, it will be ready to drive. Hard to imagine now perhaps but you will get there.

I am thinking of seeing a guy who makes panels in a week or so, to quote on the sections behind rear wheels.... Will let you know what happens.

HI Dave

many are sad in that area.... if its reasonable, possibly could get a few L & R made

Either this or next week i gave to go up that way so can call in. He's an ace panel maker..... had (maybe still) had a program on CH31 making panels etc
He did some work on a panel for my Hotrod that was difficult for me at the time
