    The entire roof was pitted with rust spots that had been sprayed over with thick yellow spray putty and paint.
    All of it ground back to bare metal, treated and primed.
    A long dirty dusty job.

    Don't know about you, but I get exhausted just looking at all this work we have done as I am posting it.
    Day by day we just keep plodding along but when it all goes together on here, wow!

    No rest though.
    I've been assembling the engine and ready to mate it to the gearbox.
    Will be fish oiling the whole body first in a day or so.

    Thanks Kahuna, yes, the hint prompted me.
    I photograph all the work we do mainly for future reference like perhaps a new owner to see what has been done.
    Nothing hidden.
    There is still more to this story though.
    Thanks for following it.
    Come and have a look sometime.
    Nearly always here except for when I'm not :)

    Today was unmasking the body and think about the reassembly.
    Ordered plenty of new genuine( where possible) parts and rubbers.
    Dug out the dash and found that even it had rusted.
    Usual story. cut out the bad part, make a new one, weld it in, repair, paint and reassemble.

    My pleasure, cheers .
    I also hope that people learn something from all of this.
    Maybe get ideas or inspiration.
    I have no qualifications, just learn as I go.
