    Not a lot achieved lately but I have managed to get the steering box fully rebuilt. I managed to remake a few of the diecast bits in bronze. Ive also dropped off all the interior chrome work for plating. Hopefully next month when that gets back I can assemble the doors and start fitting all the interior.

    Spent a few hours cleaning the floor. My sons cat has been getting in there. Finished the rear trim and got all the locks sorted. Still have to do a bit of straightening on the rear bar before I send it away next month to the chrome platers. It does fit well now but which is good.

    Picked up another batch of zinc plating today. Also have chrome plated most of the interior bits. Just starting to sort the wiring now.

    I can't remember if I have said it before, but this build is on par with Critters 71 SFGT build. The detail is just awesome, love it. Thanks for all your work and sharing it with us.

    had a few weeks break while my son recovers from surgery. Back into it this week while I'm off work. Quater vents assembled and door mechanisms back in. Also did the front bucket seats. Pretty happy for my first go at doing anything upholstery related. It's been the only thing I've ever had to farm out restoration wise. Still need to rebuild the rear seat frame next.
