robah Posted February 19, 2006 Share Posted February 19, 2006 Last year I bought a GTE Exclusive (string is not a bonnet lock) I have finally managed to start working on the car, removing the bumpers, front wings, bonnet, engine, gearbox, pedals, propshaft, and exhaust system, etc. While under and around the car I found bodge jobs, like tape covered in wax oil where the sills should be, body filler where panels should be, and rust where chassis should be (photos to follow). I have taken on the car as a long term (2 year)project, but wonder if I have taken on too much work. As some of the photos show I do have the aid of a big workshop (motorclub, RAF) so I do have an advantage in some respects but where do you say enough is enough. It looks like I will probably have to invest in a body roller (not cheap ), and probably go to a ship yard for steel[:I]. I am not restoring the car to sell on, and I don't mind spending a little extra cash on the car, if it is worth it. but at what stage would you say it is scrap. The photos were taken by my phone that's why they are not great I hope the car restoring pixes and faries around my car tonight[:I].
