    Excellent progress Mr Chuck.

    These old splittys are very rusty animals in their untouched state.

    Great to see you are bringing it back to life and on the Central Coast.

    Drove past your area today on the way to Swansea to find it is a very charred area - you seem to have escaped the carnage - well done!

    Doing the roof repairs at the moment.
    Passenger side replaced/repaired gutter, repair roof bow, replaced stiffener and roof repair section installed.

    Above the rear hatch the stiffener and patch which the hatch bolts to were rusted out but the roof was pretty good. So I bent the inner side of the gutter down to be able to get in there and replace them with out damaging the roof.

    Hey Mate - thanks for the pics, I'm doing that roof repair at the moment... Did you have to tack some bar onto the gutter repair piece for strength?

    Do you have any more pics of that part you did?

    Thanks

    John
