Woooo, hope it stays dry Geof.
Thanks Mark, lots of expanding foam and boards in the door way, we will know by the morning :-)
Brings back a lot of memories from my build at the end of the 70's. Mine had an MGB front end which are still not too hard to find and get spares for.
Oops sorry made a mistake?

Nice job you are doing so far Geoff, but would seem a bit early for doing a nice paint job on bits that haven't been fitted yet. Normally it is best to dry build the car with all suspension engine gearbox axles and chassis all done before really detailing anything as it will get all ****ted up with grinding git dust and ****, then once done strip it all out and paint and detail. I know you end up stripping the cart a couple of times but it normally comes out better for it in the end, Please don't take it as a criticism but as an observation if you've not done it before.

Anyone can drive a fast car, not everyone can drive a car fast!!!!
Lol, Yes John completely agree, well back to front.
I couldn't work on the car because of the flooding problems here and I had time on my hands and it was in a thousand pieces so it needed to be rebuilt to do the first fit. Then I had a moment.. I thought can't work on the car so just do it and risk the consequences.
Back to the real build next week if the water continues to go down, I'm frightened to sort the garage out and then have to lift everything off the floor again if the water starts coming up again.
Hopefully I'll be back to a better order soon, but its nice to see what it might look like.
Thanks for your comments, at least it won't rust, well where its not chipped :-)
P.S. Bubble wrap and Card are my friends... I hope LOL
