It's only a temp measure Dave, looks 100% better, should keep the tin worm at bay having spent 3 hours soaked in Jenolite. I'll be doing the engine bay properly over the winter, everything but the engine out so I can get into all the nooks.

Thanks guys, it's been a struggle to be interested, I've nearly gone for a replacement (coop) a couple of times recently, but non of them would held a candle to this car once it finished, a fresh lick of paint and a few jobs and she'll be as good as they get without throwing silly money at them!

She might even have a fibre glass bonnet, I haven't quite decided yet, it's a gamble that one.
