Another rusty one just to lower the tone FF 276...and it is shorter than most at the moment as well. The front wing is merely place in position before anyone asks!

Those sheets of steel behind the car suggest that you're going to make your own rear quarters Peter. Is that correct or do I need to go to Specsavers?

They are indeed rear quarters...previously tacked onto someone else's a failed restoration project but suitably priced. They sit alongside a rear panel and numerous other bits...just need to make the time now.

Picture taken a while ago and in storage for the past 18 months awaiting some welding on the stitch in time principle and then a respray.

Pistachio of course, it is simply that the current coat is beyond a mere polish. The paint is already purchased. If there ever was a cool period colour verde pistachio is it 8)
