    My personal 2p worth - I chopped mine 2.5" at the back and 2.25" at the front, enough to look 'right' but not enough to look squashed.

    A few more bits started

    The boot was rotten, so cut the bottom off and made a new inner, just the skin to do.





    Made one of the 'A' post and the two 'B' post bottoms, one's fitted, started to fit the rear valance (gosh, a plasma cutter makes cutting the old off so easy :-)
    Plus the sills have arrived, decided to buy the valance and sills to save time. Just need to turn the sills in to running boards now.


    Arch repair started


    Not a huge amount done, but little by little...

    3 days cutting, fitting, filling, grinding and its still not finished, but its a big improvement. Interesting the pictures make the grind marks look horrid, in the flesh it looks much better.

    From this




    To this, still working in progress, but a bit better, once the welding and grinding is finished it will get a coat lead to fill the worst.


    The old filler hole looks terrible in this picture now its filled, but its good in the flesh, must be the flash or something, I was pleased with it till I saw the pics
    And the bottom 2" of the rubber lips all repaired as well, although they don't show in the pics.

    Loving these builds at the moment, it may seem like people aren’t taking notice, but they do help people like me with a big build on the go
