What a difference a week makes. As you'll see the body has arrived back from the paintshop and I have begun fitting it to the chassis and refitting the wings. The bulkhead has come up really well, you simply can't get that finish without taking the car to a blank chassis. I will be replacing the spark plug holder with a period correct oil can to complete the look.
I'm still waiting on the arrival of the new rocker cover and haven't tackled the carburettors yet, plenty of jobs left to do but it's certainly starting to look something now. The photograph below does no justice to the bright MG red which really makes the car stand out. The fresh paint finish and little touches make it easy to imagine the car rolling off the production line. I'm sure I won't look that good at 65!
