and the end result.

Original shocks and original springs will complete the front nicely

True to his word Ian had the tyres, rims, centre caps and lug nuts available today and we did a deal that worked for both of us.

I cleaned up the centre caps and that are as new,  not a mark scratch of anything,  lug nuts coming up great with some elbow grease too.

Rims are in perfect conditon no dings or marks but will need painting before easing the old tyres back on to them.

That might be fine if you re going to put it in a museum when you finish but if you ever plan on driving it  I wouldn't be doing that.

Time for an update.

Paul Rankin has finished the painting last week taking great care to avoid over spray on any area that did not require painting so that as much originality is retained as possible.

Many photos taken of the black paint at the front so we can replicate it exactly as it was.

Matching the Le Mans Blue colour was difficult as it has a purple hue in some lights and a reddish tinge in others and Paul painted spare panels and another customers car
first to double check the formulation that was developed was spot on,  which to my eye it is.

Soon the reassembly begins and the race to make Easter Sunday begins........don't like my chances though.

That is such a beautiful colour.  It's just stunning!
