I can't wait to see it on the road... Looks stunning. You can also be confident that it will stay that way. Two years after Frank's attention, and a full year out in the open, the paintwork on mine is still superb. The only paintwork blemishes on mine are entirely my fault....

May I add that the paint job just looks simply superb and is obviously a great advertisement for Option 1.

Hope the refit etc goes together ok.

Those pic's don't half bring back memories. 5 Option I guys and I lifted my Sprint body onto a small flatbed truck and I screw fixed (with L O N G Screws) down through the mounting holes into bearers (6"x 2") to keep it in place. No straps!

I can also report that after about 4.5 k mls since resto' the paintwork is still superb. Some 'use' marks now but thats going to happen if you use the car.

I just got my bonnet back from Frank after a repair required when I tripped and threw the bonnet across the front of the car and into the wall.... :? :? Hurt myself too. Took me about 20 mins to get onto my feet, but I was more worried about the car. I could not bear to look. The bonnet was the only damage.. :roll:

Your car looks just fantastic Innes. I would love to see it sometime.. And if I can help please let me know. I'm down in Fife.

Thanks for all the comments I couldn't be more pleased with the finish, as for rebuilding the car, that'll have to wait till I finish my Uni exams end of this month, hopefully have the car running this summer but maybe a bit optimistic.
Also looks like I'll be eating beans on toast till the cows come home as I've spent up my university bursary on the paint :wink: (Normal living standards are over-rated anyway...)
