    Some spots from the last few months:
    Isle of Wight:

    Bromsgrove:

    Kidderminster:


    Worcester (?) I don't think it was even abandoned, just a little unloved, but it stood out to me:

    Tamworth but only on Google Maps (during a seasion of boredom at work). I intend to pop up there for a bimble in one of my rare occasions of having spare money, time and fuel in my car:

    Also I don't know if anyone else noticed (or cares probably), but the Lone Star E Type is different again. The tatty one has flared wheelarches and a body line joining them
    The tidy red one has no flares but has the line
    The blue one doesn't have either, just a slight crease where the sills roll under

    That Guisval is the nicer to my mind, partly because we don't see many of the Spaniards over here. 
    The Gulper from earlier on had its engine unceremoniously hoised out and stuck in the bare metal base I've been doing for my fake colour trial version. I did try leaving it exactly as it was under the paint but it was messing with my head, so all got cleaned up. Leaving the chrome to dry overnight before swapping the shells

    Thank you but no - I think it was a smaller scale kit I had before, it'll just upset me seeing it shedding parts after I've finished it anyway

    Can confirm that the Mercedes really is lovely. Even the cast-in headlight wipers are visible.

    I definitely need psychiatric evaluation. I probably didn't need more of these, but I was after a parts donor, and the Lone Star Jag was just too minty to resist

    So as it pissed it down on the longest day of the year, I decided to try and do as much as I can today. I didn't do much, just tried to see how much of the arch is alright and how much is rotten, and working out as straight a line as I can to cut tomorrow.





    So it's basically just as bad as the other side.
    But as it's just a straight forward arch, as in there's no fancy curves for the fuel filler, I reckon I could just make  one or two large panels and throw it on. 
    Maybe!

    I'm quite impressed with myself, given the bit if sill I fixed today took half as long as the other side. Obviously I've not done the sheet of steel in the middle, as it isn't needed, but I managed to get a repair panel done and on the car in a day.
    I decided, given how much I hate welding upside down, I thought I would try and make the panel on the bench, and then weld it on the car.
    It worked more or less.




    Quite proud of the last image, my welding has come on leaps and bounds.
    Then I do this.

    The left has a big glob, as it kept burning through and I was fixing the hole. Other side is better though, but it's all there.
    All of that sill though, if it wasn't cut and welded, has been Vactan'd on the inside. So I've a bit to do on the outside, obviously, but I can do that in the morning if it's dry or Monday lunchtime.
