Just had to put pics of the brick B post glad you like them :lol:
Full size rear window laid forward colour scheme is going mat black for a time until body mods are all sorted trying to get her on the road for Drayton. Then finish mods as we get time through the year. Pixie and Tommy Tucker are doing a great job on her. We are all very pleased on her progress and the look.
More pics to follow

Okay, I'm confused.... Who is 8Pints & who is Pixie??? I've met Lee once (picked some steel up from him) & thats Lee's garage, but I thought Lee's username was Pixie? That isn't Lee behind the wheel, and, but, well.....? :D

Whoever owns it, its going to be just sweet....
