Hey Mastadd240k
Nice build thread, looking good.
Just wondering, did you leave engine in and just cover it when you re-sprayed the engine bay?
Thinking If so and it went okay without any problems, I might try and do the same for my 180B coupe project
cheers

Hahahaha

Nice Eyes, Hoping i might get it on the road next month.

Pending Bonnet and Hinges getting painted,

I think i have collected all the important missing bits now.

Need to fire it up and make sure it still runs - then swap the carb and exhaust for my other one.

then the suspension upgrades

Sometimes you have to go backwards to go forwards, Dave the painter wasn't happy with a few spots so he did it again.

Very nice restoration work - love watching this progress!

Just a quick question, with all the replating work you have done on metal parts, who would you recommend to do this plating work? I am about to do the same on a heap of 1600 parts, your plated parts look amazing.
