Brilliant thread, just read it from page one. You're doing some really nice work Pete and a great save.
Subscribed so I can see it to the end.

It's a long way from perfect, but it will do for now. I'm still enjoying driving it around and slowly finishing and altering bits. When I have got...
I've had this since 1991. 59 Dodge custom royal. Was originally a rhd four door.[ATTACH] [ATTACH]
The pic above is me on Brands Hatch track. This was a really good event for me as it gave me a chance to give the Zephyr some hard driving. It...

To top that they were all racing on the same beach that...
Nice buy, I was watching this one on the evil bay. Very nice looking Zephyr.
Nice save. Definitely seems the previous owner got in way to deep. Glad it's all coming back together.
Gotta love these old Zephyrs. :)

Good luck with the move to the new house mate, you won't regret...

I'm liking this, looks like a cool car in the making. Nice fabrication too.
Definitely time for a bump.
Very tidy work again Kenneth, your'e making it look easy.
The coupe is coming on at a good rate of knots now.

Cheers Walt, looks like a good feature.
Now there's a plan Phil.
Perfection right there. :)
Looking good Mats, time that engine/box goes back in there it will come down pretty much spot on. I found that with a reversed eye main leaf in...
Thanks for the comments MUNCIE,
It's only been 17 months since it docked on our shores and I collected it. It actually took almost exactly a year...
