Managed to get the other side done today. I will seal it all up tomorrow and put the wings back on if the sealing strip turns up .

Just finished painting the inner wings just got to wait for the paint to dry then I can fit the new wings. Fingers crossed I can get it painted in the next couple of months. Although the well used original look is ok I do prefer shiney

Wings back on so that will do for now. Hopefully I can pick up the new rear wing whilst I am in France in a couple of weeks. Once that is fitted I will have to try and find someone to paint it.

That front end is really something without the bumper.  Blank off the bumper irons, remove the spots and hide the indicator-sidelight units and that's one stupendously stylish front end.  Or, yanno, leave it all stock, either's good.  It's nice that this is one of your longer-term residents, it seems to be rewarding your efforts by being really rather good if slow.

The bumper will go back on once it gets painted to try and keep it original. It has rather grown on me now as it just gets on with doing it's job I have got to paint it though as it just looks a bit scruffy now. Hopefully the new rear wing will still be available when I get to France in a week or so as it is the only rusty bit left now. It will never be worth bugger all and certainly no where near what I have spent on it. I will have to get another project once it does get painted though as it is nice to have something to play with when it's quiet.

I had a job cancel today and got fed up sitting around surfing so decided to make a start on the back end. The wing came off really well with only 4 screws needing to be drilled out which is good going for a near 50 year old car.

The wing wasn't that bad and will go again if I can't get the new one next week.

The inner wing is a lot better than I thought it would be just a couple of bits need cutting out.

The rear lower valance is a bit frilly though, but as most of it is hidden behind the bumper and number plate panels it can be repaired rather than trying to find a new one.

A bit quiet this week so started to do the N/S/R and rear metalwork.

It is surprising how much rust hides on these things. It seemed a good solid example but once you start poking the bits the mot tester can't see there is loads of crumbly brown stuff.

The rear panel went quite well but it is all hidden behind the bumper and tow bar.

I will start rebuilding the suspension turret today or tomorrow depending on how busy I am with work.

Another good thread of 60s and 70s French fettling that I haven't checked in on a while, which I should have done. I enjoy seeing a timeline of rusty panels becoming fresh air and then solid new metal. Liking the fact that you are taking it in your stride!
