Default Some surprisingly good bits as well as some that aren't

Got a few spares - not sure if any of it will be useful just yet though



The radio got removed after agreeing the sale. Pain in the backside - I don't know why people are so petty...

...another not so great bit is the lip around the opening for the boot.



I'm hoping this will be an easy fix - the rest of the structure has been treated =>



It looks like it was Hammerite - oh well - perhaps it is some Eastwood chassis black? Who can tell?

Another question:- Would the inside of the boot normally be in the body colour?

Unfortunately - or perhaps fortunately depending on how you see these things the original B18 has gone AWOL. It has been replaced by a B20 from 1969. I'm assuming this is a low compression engine as there's just a single carb fitted at the moment

Amazing picture coming up next =>



No rust under the battery!
