Definitely a thread focusing on quality rather than quantity.  You can't really tell anything has been done to the unpainted bodywork at all in the photographs, always a sign of a very good job.

Just drove home in this! Put a rebuilt starter on last night and it now starts first pull. Definitely a few bugs to iron out before I'm totally happy with how it drives, but nothing fell off or exploded over 40 miles or whatever so I'm pretty happy

Amazing what a lick of paint on the chassis and a quick polish of the radiator does for the look of this thing. It's almost looking like a car, now

The tinwork is now all completed and the body has been properly attached to the chassis for the first time in decades. All being well, it's never going to come apart again

Both front wings are now done. The nearside has had its spare wheel well reconstructed and the offside has had a flat section welded in place as we only want to carry one spare.

Luckily the well fits the wheel! We now have a set of tyres (Blockley 760 x 90 beaded edge; look that up if you want a shock) so next step is to paint one of the wheels, fit a tyre and use this as a guide to make the new rear wings. Other jobs on the 'before Christmas' list hopefully include running boards and new floorboards throughout.
Mechanically things aren't progressing so quickly, but we hope there will be far less work on that side of things. The March deadline is creeping scarily closer every day, though...

(Sorry for shitty third gen pics, I should have some better ones soon)

Had a telephone call out of the blue the other day from Jeremy Bacon, who discovered the Palladium in 1952 on a farm in Meopham. He got it back on the road, drove it straight to France and then used it regularly for several years. Nobody seemed to know if he was still around (he's at least in his mid-80s) so it was very nice to hear from him. He's looking forward to having a ride in the car in spring. Here it is not long after he started using it - it's thanks mainly to Jeremy that this car survives at all.
