Looking great Andy, it's all the small finicky bits that are the time sinks huh!
 

Quick question on door gaps since you have done a shed load, what is the correct gap on the back edge to B post and wing fitment?

Thanks mate. Door etc.. are all good I mocked it all up to check before paint. Wings are currently not fully boted on they was just fitted to move to the new workshop.

TY for pic, Wanted to know the gap for mine, one of the wings is a little miss formed so bodyshop will need to profile to correct. Also the door hinges was welded at one point, so I want them to get the gaps back to what should be original if they are adjusting.

Looking good! Excitement levels must be ramping up a bit now! 

They sure are. Moving to the new place has knocked my flow a bit I must admit, but I'm sure I'll get used to it in time.

Thanks Herman. Yes I also tape them up when fitting. They are quite difficult to install 

Is the process for putting them back in described in the Haynes Manual correct Andy?

I'm not sure to be honest jess I just screw the gliders back on in same position on the sliding section upon removal, so they go back in same order

Top work their mate👍 a credit to the club...i  quess its fair to say this one is a keeper and you won't be selling it on😛

Have you thought about the value of it once completed for insurance purposes yet...25k maybe🤑

Will be great to see it on the road and at the shows..maybe a youtube vid of it reunited with its former keeper like you said.

Defo be a keeper 🙂 I've wanted this car for years and at the current prices id like to think it be worth more than 25k once finished considering what it is and the work that's gone into it. Not to mention the amount I paid for it to rescue it from its rusty death 😂
