Karens FB Victor was transported back to the workshop yesterday ready to get started
Image
Image
I started off by taping some lines to give me some ideas as to what way to go about its new look pretty pleased with how they work now all i need to do is make a start on putting the ideas into reality :shock: :D
Image
Image
just to give myself an idea on the way the car should sit I made a start of stripping out the suspension, front only so far
Image
few of the panels placed on
Image
with lots of mods to be getting on with so I finished the day with by starting to strip the car out to a bare shell
Image
this much out so far rest today :?
Image
all of the side glass will soon be going up for sale as its quite a rare car now including the rear side window rubbers which were rare new old stock a few years ago and apparently the last ones available , why are vauxhall parts so much harder to find than ford parts ?

There's one of those sat in a yard a few hundred yards away from my house. The same colour as well. In fact I think he might have 2 there.

I don't know how you do it Nightmares, I'm only trying to get some 'glass front fenders on and they just won't fit right. You never cease to amaze me.
