Rear hatch slam panel, dogleg replacement, floorpan repairs, some repairs to the outer wings and headlamp cowls - the usual stuff!

Not sure what the timescale is but yeah, with some room in the garage it'll be onto fixing up all the other bits I took off

Nice work.

Lots of hours but in the end a real beauty you'll have.

I'm hoping so - there's so many good orange ones recently (and on the way). I'm going to have to step my game up!

Body shop has done the initial stripping. Nothing unexpected hiding so that's positive! Looks like I'll be switching back to the original doors though as the replacements aren't as good 😂

Good stuff Mr T. Have you decided whether you're going with body colour underneath and in the arches etc or black stonechip or stonechip then body colour etc, so many ways you can do this.

if it was me I'd go for black underneath I think ... you're doing a more orig style resto, yes?

Not sure, I was contemplating original colour with no stonechip but it depends on the condition of the existing stonechip when the shop really examines it.

Surely it'll get 'blasted off' in no time with no stonechip though? Any other metalwork needed on the shell?

Its got to be colour underneath.... thats how they came from the factory, anything else just reminds me of 80's welding coverup, even if its not.

Looks great dude, nice to see progress being made in the right direction. I bet you can't wait for it to be finished!

I'm not a stickler for everything being OEM so I'm happy with black unseal/stonechip rather than body colour. I'd do what you want to, its your project after all

Good to see this making progress, the floors look remarkably solid as does the majority of the car!

I take it there's been no horror discoveries?
