Made a couple of "help!" posts so far but ain't yet put up any pix of the car, here's how it was at start of year and also how it is now...
Thought 'body' a good place to show it as most of the work has been on body n paint.
Well except brakes suspension and usually fluid changes, water pump, and about to fit a new clutch.
This pic is the "before" pic
Let's hope this works!

Thanks fellas, yeah shes turned out much better than I first envisaged,..was gonna leave patina but after rust dent repairs there was more and more primer patches that it made more sense to repaint the whole car and I had a gallon of metallic purple acrylic doing nothing so I added more sparkle to it plus ome red gold pearl in the clearcoat, did a fake vinyl roof in truck bed liner.
Got it to a driveable state, all new brakes (4 wheel drums) added a brake power booster.
electric fuel pump needs to a relocated close the tank which is a fuel cell as original tank is rusted...
Clutch is near the end of its life too.
Seriously thinking of taking it into Lloyds Auctions and seeing what it'll bring.
Classics are going nuts over here at the moment with covid, people are buying up big, mainly Aussie stuff, but also American.
So gonna see what I can get for her I reckon.
And move on to another project.
