Given the holiday period and spells of decidedly cold weather, there has not been a lot to report recently, however, steps have been taken in preparing the shell for paint, in that having stripped the topside, the shell has been rolled over to allow the underside to be blasted to free it of years of underseal and other sticky nastiness so that the main structure can be inspected.

Meanwhile, the parts of the doors that had shown up to be rather unpleasant (mostly the leading edge of the passenger door – this car is LHD don’t forget) have now been attended to with new metal being let in where necessary.
