Re: barrie's project

Barrie Sorry to hear of your predicament. You have not failed but are handing the reigns of restoration to someone else to complete. Even though someone else will complete the restoration it will always be your grandpas car. My only advice as regards value - do not under value - you can always come...

Re: barrie's project

I then fitted the passenger door , it kind of fits but I’m far from happy with it . It fits fine at the front but the back looks as tho the door is sitting to low,around 1cm or so ... so my thoughts are , to adjust the door up a bit more( as it needs to come up a tad) fit a spacer on the bottom hing...

Re: barrie's project

Well done to both you and Mrs Westy for rescuing those kittens and giving them a caring home. No animal deserves the treatment they'd had to endure! I won't dwell on your collision woes except to say that the damage in your pic suggests considerable speed but the location suggests car park, not out...
