Great pics Liam. Apart from you being pleased it's 2 years older than you initially thought. Does it look the same as the pics you bought it from?

Will be watching this thread with great interest!

Theres some areas that are better than i thought and some that are worse! Its a hell of a lot of work but something to keep me busy! Really pleased with how it looks though its a patina monster! My welding will certainly improve by the time its done

Well done for getting it over, it looked rather lonely on the trailer, but as least he / she's got company now in the workshop. Hope you enjoy working on it. Keep us updated & we will dig out our box of spares.

Just noticed that your title says 'winow' should call it krusty winow!

Right europes done now so a mini update ( and it is mini! )
Started cleaning the horrible algi type stuff off the roof to see whats under it

Before (you can see the patch where i started at the front offside)



After




Didnt get the whole thing done as i only had a polishing cloth and was using hand cleaner and there was a lot of people down the yard so had about 50 conversations with random people, mostly starting with "you got a lot of work there boy" and finishing in "what do you mean your not going to paint it" haha
Soon got bored of this so we fitted the new wheels to dannys caddylac (pics needed dude!) and did a big burnout in the granada.

Went down a few days later and did a lot of cutting now looks like this awaiting a big box from schofields.



Will hopefully get down there on sat to do a bit feel free to come and laugh and distract me!

Went dowmn today and had a tidy up and to get some work done on the delux microplow but found my uncle had borrowed my grinder so couldnt do the bits i wanted so forced the one remaining window out of the siezed frame then got my camberg found, siezed delux hornpush stripped and freed off then fitted it to the wheel to see what it was like and was quite chuffed!



Hopefully better updates tomorrow
