Here's my daily driver.
I've had it 3 months and in that time I've made a start restoring it from this





to this




I was quite pleased with my efforts until I saw these at a local car show





So since then, I've cut a coil off the front springs and made myself a side exhaust.





My goal being something like this photoshop effort



Any comments welcome

Brilliant project :chill
You've done a great job so far and if it looks anything like the photoshop when it's finished it'll look great :tu
( I reckon the wheels would look cool painted the same colour as the seats though , with the chrome rings and hubcaps and some whitewalls :drool )

Thanks guys.

Took another half a coil off the front this morning and now I'm pretty satisfied with the results. Looks near enough like my photoshop effort. :)




What's next?

Thanks. Maybe I should act a little more grown up now.....

These cars are really rare. I don't think I've ever seen one on the road (except mine :rolleyes )

My lad said this morning that it looks like Doc Hudson off that Cars film. I thought that was cool!! :D
