    greetings all
    it been a few weeks since my last up date, well all of the panels are back on repairs have been done to chips and scratches now once she is flatted with 800 grit she will be ready for several top coats.20170822_113506.jpg20170822_113515.jpg20170827_142218.jpg20170827_142230.jpg20170827_142240.jpg
    apart from waiting for a few parts I am hoping to have the car completed and on the road by October.
    The only problem I have come accross is a previous owner has held the front grill in with a huge amount of filler so it would take ages to remove it so for now I will spray the grill, but the next rebuild in 4 years it will be removed for plating.

    On a side note, referring to this thread http://www.marlinownersclub.com/foru...3389#post43389

    Your front tie rod bushes look to be a light brown colour.

    Are they new ones, old stock? If so what are they?

    The colour suggests they are not Superflex. Which supplier did you use?
