Surgery is going well!!

The good news is that underneath she is solid as a rock, all surface rust has been removed, wings prepared for painting and then bolt it all back together!!
Next job is to get the alloys refurbed
Then she'll be perfect!!

Regards all

Cheers guys, I will indeed.

I bought her as a "keeper" so there was no point in doing a cosmetic job.

Are your headlights OEM? They look nice, but a little different, I think.
