    The welding man was found today. Poked a few more holes in it. The guy seems old skool, he is only going to do e decent job. Doesn't believe in bodgery just to get mot. Do it properly and do it once.

    Heres the bits needing the sparkly stick. Drivers sill, both inner wings three bits on the floor. Also two jacking points that I haven't took pics of. The front panel will be fine with a bit of cure rust and wire brusk in the grinder. This should be getting done this weekend. I am into hospital for an operation on my right hand on Tuesday so I will be out of commission for probably a few weeks after that, but we have been waiting 6 years plus for this to be done, so what's another few weeks?

    It's taken a while to organise but part 1 of the necessary work to get this going will be starting in the next week. It's been a major headache getting someone to take on the welding of it. The guy, who has worked in a bodyshop for 25 years, doing welding both on rusty and damaged cars recons that he will have it done in two days or less, that's just the cutting out and welding, I have to prepare it for the job, which will not be difficult, and then I will have to do the rustproofing, and painting once he is done. I am quite happy doing this. Then it will be the other bits needed to get it roadworthy, needs a wheel bearing, a couple brake pipes, and the brakes freed off and serviced. The biggest problem is I have an operation on my right hand a week on Tuesday, which will put me completely out of the game for doing stuff like this for a while, it may be that my hand will be in plaster for up to 6 weeks. I can only hope that the welding is done and the rust proofing done before I am out of commission. It's never going to be a show car, but I'm aiming for a tidy runner.

    Well the thought at the moment, 24 hours after retrieving this, is that we shall get it welded up, tidied up, mot and running into tidy runner territory, not near concourse condition but see where we get to. Shaun had no idea until Saturday night that I was on the case of getting it back, so it's a huge surprise to him too that we actually got it. I was not really expecting to get it myself, until I actually was winching it on the trailer. Money it tight just now, both with Shaun and myself, but together we may manage it.

    This is going to make a better car than if you walked into a vauxhall dealer in 1985 and bought a brand new one! I bought a 1985 1.6gl at two years old with 20000 miles on it and loved it. Had to sell it 6 months later due to an unexpected huge bill for the house. I would love another.

    That's good. Had it been not lowered and a higher driver seat I would have kept it. It would be great for my work. It feels far more airy and roomy than modern due to the large glass area and slim window pillars. That's progress I suppose, safety regulations to me means thicker window pillars which cuts down visibility, so aas far as I'm concerned are a double edged sword.

    Its possibly because I didn't really drive it much in the last month or so as it was on loan, but I didn't notice anything up with the driveshaft, either clonking or jerking. I hope that's all it needs, the car is basically sound and should be good for a good few miles yet.

    I'm very tempted to bid on the black princess on ebay now! I've even gone as far as checking flights to get it, and at today's prices I can get to Heathrow for £39! Very tempting, but I have an operation the get next month, and a 42 year old Princess would disintegrate in a winter up here living outside 400 yards from the North Sea
