Looking good Mr T. Hope you're photographing everything and bagging and tagging like a good 'un.

No more horrors been unearthed I hope? Al pretty good so far?

What's the rad like? Is it an original one and are you going to reuse it?

You're making good progress there, I'm not having mine done now until late autumn so it's ready for spring next year, it would be too much of a rush to get it done this month, keep us updated!

I'm bagging and tagging some bits, a lot of the bolts etc. are going to have to be flat-out replaced though as the previous owner has bodge-replaced lots of the fixings and wiring.

Not anything too bad yet - I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

The radiator's non-standard but seems in OK condition. I'll probably be going for an ally one in the end so it doesn't matter too much.

It does time, especially with a method ...

If you were dismantling any old car, it'd take no time at all ... keep up the good work.

Looking good. Lots of room in the engine bay to work. I had the V8 out of my old fastback last year before selling it and there was about 1/4" either side, not good.

Is the engine the original and is it being rebuilt?

It's an l28 but yeah the plan its to strip everything down and rebuild.. Apparently it already has some kind of non-standard cam and who knows what else so I'm keen to get it all checked out.

Good stuff Mr T - so what exactly are they replacing metal-wise? Those inner wings look pretty damn good. When will you get it back from the bodyshop as you've probably got four months to get everything else done ready to fit back on
