Default 11 years in the waiting.

Just getting it ready to roll.
Has been sat here for the last 11 years.
Now is the time to get on with it.
Wasnít sure if I was going to restore or modify but looking at it now itís too original to mod, the only things missing is the carpet and the little shelf under the drivers side.

Bit of a slow start but got chance of a couple of hours today. Looking like a new top bulkhead panel might not be a bad idea.





Parts list getting longer.

Itís FKO 379V on this one. What colour was yours?

Interior colour is correct on vin plate, I had to double check just in case. 😁
Always liked the beige interior.

I lost most of the photos of the first stages, I do still have some. I have been meaning to do a thread but I have an Anglia on the go at the moment.
