Made a start on the brakes tonight but my front calipers are seized was going to buy service kits but it’s just as easy to buy 2 new ones only £59 free delivery can’t go wrong  so they’ve now been ordered 

hope to complete brakes on the weekend once this is done it will be time to start the bodywork 

sending prop to bar prop to be done not had a cost for this told them to sort it , as it has to be done also new uv joints being fitted

hope to finish everything by May bank holiday so it will be on show in Singleton park classic car show😀
