A quick post with a few picture showing where we are now.

After collecting the doors and wings from the painter I built the doors.

And at Tims the bare car was still being welded. We had intended to spend the day painting and hanging panels but we just kept finding more and more rust as we were preparing to paint. Both front sils were replaced, the two jacking points strengthened and finally both the driver and passenger side floors had repair patches welded in.

As Tim welded I painted the D posts,

So now we wait again for the painter to catch up, by finishing the remaining panels.

Still no new wheels.
