    The last obvious repair was a spot just forward of the drivers side door, again it was non magnetic... and there was quite a large hole.

    I was a bit worried about creating the crease lines that caused me so many issues on the other side, but I took my time and as it was a smaller patch could bend it more easily in m vise - I was pretty pleased with how this one came out.

    No just need to block everything in and give her a lick of paint and it will be done.

    Getting close to having this finished! Spent most of Saturday skimming and blocking and skimming and blocking! Not my favorite part of the process. I finally got the gun out today and blew on some primer. With a bit of luck I will have the colour on by the end of the week.

    Bet you felt fitter at the end of the day;). Good job you're doing.

    Not sure about fitter, I was certainly dustier :)

    Now that I'm nearly done I've been thinking about a a new decal/ side stripe - I had to remove half of the old one - it wasn't in the best shape and was in the way. Does anyone have any ideas where I can get one?

    Nah - will be a matter of getting “something” and getting it to work.

    If you are wanting something specific- contact Ryan at www.esigns.com.au

    Finished putting her back together on the weekend (ignore the paint matching, it's just to protect the repairs). Getting the windows back in was a learning experience but I got there in the end. After cleaning off the dust I took her for a shakedown spin.
    Without the camping interior I was surprised by how much faster she was, especially up hills. Quite the speedster! Still a lot of work to do but she's back on the road and useable again.
