    Hi Don we need pics. I did a very quick sweep of previous posts and copied some quotes, hope these spur you on ( most of them are from a few posters who I am sure would only be too happy to stand by their posts).

    I have no idea what the deal with his bodyman/welder will be, but in any normal situation this particular car would be way past any economic repair.

    hThat statement alone proves that you are inhabiting your own reality with regard to this project,

    Not Sean is......

    If even this is too difficult for you, you might want to give up now.

    Nice to see that not only can he write screeds about the proper facts surrounding Z's but that he can resort to a bit of 'handbags' when he feels the need.

    You do not know me...

    If this is serious then I don't think I've seen anyone thats more in denial than an Egyptian life guard.

    As I've suggested before on this thread, what you say you're doing/going to do and what your photos show you have done don't match up.

    It is what it is. The problem here is that the owner doesn't actually seem to acknowledge what it is and what it requires, despite the best efforts of most

    How can someone be so blindly ignorant having not even seen the car, even though has been openly offered the invitation of doing so.....

    I take it not on board because I know the result will prove you wrong.

    Maybe this will end up being one of those unfinished project thingies advertised, sale due to lack of time to complete.

    It appears to have been prepped with a chainsaw rather than a D.A.

    why? that just stinks of a half arsed job.

    You would happen to be incorrect.

    The car should be ready to take away on Monday, but I have no windscreen fitted!!!

    The only option I have really unless someone has one is to order from America!

    But that will take a few weeks!

    Looks good!

    How did you do the window surrounds? Paint or powder coat?

    I'm looking to do mine and I'm trying to think of something that won't scratch too easily.

    But if you use the correct amount of hardner, it ahould not scratch easily.

    Looking great Don, well done for sticking with a proper tough resto. Something to be proud of now!

    Rob, I would love to.

    However I do not see myself finishing the car that soon.

    I am expecting to get it on the road and hopefully take it to Silverstone classic in July.

    Even the generic arches fit very well.

    The arches were measured before the wide arches were purchased.
