hi there
first I bought a pop off ebay it drove like crap but looked all good
drove it for a week then thought id just put new wheels and tyres on it but this is what has happened the first week was taking apart week 2/3 it was at odds and rods waynes place he did a great job doing the ifs and cutting up the rear end and rebuilding it we are at week 7 now
hope you all like it so far its my first build
with a bit off luck and loads of work we might get some paint on it next week
theres no team here doing it theres me and my mate and a tea maker

Looks like a nice rust free example you've got there, so a great basis..

Not much room in those footwells is there. Is it a manual box?

I always look in build section but rarely post unless it's a question. Doesn't mean I don't enjoy the builds. Like posting on your threads ( Wayne) "excellent work" is a foregone conclusion so seems pointless keep posting it .Not like I'm trying to get enough posts to get into Adult section ;)

To all who are building , keep up the good work :tup:

Looks like its coming on a treat.

Keep the pics coming mate.

Sure there's others other than me and chunky who enjoy the pics.

Its a strange crowd sometimes
Only just found it , not been on much as I kept getting data error on the screen
Got to admit I do have a very big soft spot for ford pops .
Wayne's done a great job as usual and your getting on with it well too.
I was also watching that pop on ebay but don't worry didn't bid you up :tup:
Cheers Dazza

just noticed you have made the bulk head full width? removing the outer panels where the front end fixes to.. you are putting a pop front end back on, are'nt you?

hi no front end on this one 32 front grill pop lights and bits and other bobs will put the front end pics up soon
I paid to much for it really but its not got many rust spots so I still think I got a bargain im happy
wait till the old owner sees it he asked me to keep it as a standard car

he wanted it kept standard!! with them plastic wheel trims!!, like the idea of no front end, i thought about it with mine, but not sure i'd use a 32 grill shell.. what about just using the pop grill on its own, with no sides or bonnet! just my thoughts
