The only way you can do anything with it would be to remove the screens and cut the metal back to good, then make new repair panels and weld them in. To just grind out the rust and fill would mean it would be back within 6 months.

I had a feeling that may be the way, am having second thoughts now, if it's going to turn into a money pit, it would be a good project tho,

It looks to be more of a project than a quick fix.

If it's that bad on the surface, the "a"pillar will be shot. A lot of work lies ahead.

She looks brilliant Snod. You told me something of the amount of work you had put into the restoration when we met at a certain watering hole a while back. I'd no idea of the great result! Well done that man !

Hydrolastic suspension ??? Sorry offtopic

It is good Pinz - but it HAS to go. I have 3 other cars and a motorbike and, frankly, I just do not have the incentive to do the bits of work needed to keep this Classic in proper trim.

You and I both know that if a machine is not "used" bits of it start to deteriorate and then fail eg clutch and brakes get stiff and pump diaphragms harden. In the last year I have done maybe 200 miles in this car. Maybe once a month I take it out of the garage, warm up the engine then do a run from the Village to New Brighton then charge the battery while it is outside my house for the rest of the day. That is just enough but there is no point if I am never going to use/ show the car. Far better it goes to an enthusiast who will do that. It also costs me 40 a month just to garage it!

I have put an advert on the Classic Cars site and there are a couple of inquires
