78 not just a quick paint job

Some of us (OK, probably only me these days it seems!) spend months grovelling around doing jobs like the rear TA's and then along comes someone who does these jobs as though its as simple as changing the batteries in a torch! It makes you sick! 😊 😊 😊 😊 Seriously, looks great so far! But I may not read any more, its all too distressing!😊
It wasn't a five minute job but hopefully will be ok when it's done as had my new rear discs and pads come yesterday so just have to clean up the rear calipers now and then still wait to get the body off to sort out the chassis

Looks like you'd removed almost everything else before taking the body off. I found taking the body off first made it much easier to get everything else off.

Originally the body was staying on but then one thing led to another (as they tend to with older cars) and at the last moment I decided to take the body off because it would be easier to do the chassis πŸ˜‚

Now it's off you should find it a lot easier if you rebuild the suspension and driveline before you refit the body.

Underside of body painted so it's slowly moving along πŸ™‚

Looking really good and coming on nicely. I see you have a V5 registration now - how long did that take? I hear that the DVLA have been on strike - did that make a difference?

I have the v5 but still not had chance to send it off to class it as historic
