    Good to see some familiar faces are still here. Thanks for the replies. Some are a little humbling!

    I have thought about the list of jobs to do. Whilst extensive I think I can manage most or all of them however I am going to have a go at all of them.
    Firstly there is the rust and bodywork..
    • Two new rear lower quarters including repairs on the inner guards.
    • Rebuild both pillars (the screws holding the visor onto the drip channel even though they were sealed let water into the inside of the pillars)
    • Rear engine lid bump over number plate rusted out. Anyone got engine lid for a 71?
    • Fill in the window for the replacement sliding door (could not find a rust free panel van slider)
    • Fill in the low trim holes at the door handle level for the replacement front doors (going bling deluxe trim in the normal location)
    • Minor sill rust
    • Replace the drivers lower seat belt mount (double wall section rusting out from inside)
    • Change the front clip emblem section back to flat original from the late raised section of the replacement clip that I bought 11 years ago
    • Bodywork and paint. Going to be painted all blue but a greyer shade than the current color.

    I'm going to leave it there. Two things are happening at this point. You are getting bored reading all the detail and I'm getting depressed typing it.

    ;-)
