    well for the first time in a year and a half The car is off it's frame and has it's suspension and wheels back on is and is back on the ground.



    The reason for this is because it's off to the bodyshop to be painted


    so excited and can't wait for it to be done.

    Well the car is well onto it's way of being finished at the bodyshop, have to say I'm over the moon with what they have done and their professionalism, I've heard so many story's of bodyshops letting people down and taking months and months to complete work, I'm glad to say after doing my research I found a diamond, if anyone lives near north Hampshire and needs a bodyshop just ask and I'll pass on the details.

    Anyway less talk, let's see the pics






















    I really am over the moon, it's taken me 2 and a half years to get to this point and I've learnt a lot along the way.
    Now I get to put it all back together again and start putting on all the expensive bits I've been gathering.
    Oh if anyone is wondering the colour is VW cornflower blue.
    Nick

    It'll be a real gem at the end mate! It's still waiting for me to build my fiesta, may buy the turbo this month as a treat. Want to pull the engine again and change some bits I done

    Well the car is home and I've started fitting bits.

    Got the steering rack and column fitted plus headlights the bonnet and wings haven't been screwed sown tight as I need to sort out the shut lines.





    Next jobs are to get the pedals and brake servo fitted, then I can fit the brake lines.
