So.... Me n Stewarty fancied a bit of this..


When this came up on eBay we couldn't resist, so Stewartys brother flew over yesterday and drove it 450 miles from Cardiff to Cairnryan... Luckily it's fitted with a 99 transit engine, never skipped a beat! Started unto it this eve and made great progress... Here she is as arrived... Gulp!

Today we got everything stitched up that's we'd tacked on, also removed rear doors and remade bottom corners. 2nd skim of filler on from roof where the ambulance sign must have been?!










More tomorrow.....
