Let me know if you want to pursue it, and I'll put together a little more detailed inventory of all the bits that come with the car. Most all of it is boxed up around the garage and out in the shed (basically anywhere I had extra space that didn't include INSIDE the house (I was given strict orders there ).

I'd let ya liberate from me. 

No disc brakes on it - actually no brakes at all. I think I do have some old drums in the parts pile though that will go with it.

My wagon project is posted for sale in the classifieds section. I'm just not going to have the time to finish it for a while. It should go to a good home.

DOn't give up on her shep! It doesn't owe you anything right now! Like Superfly said, just shelve it for a while. If you decide to sell let me know.

You should leave a tinnie. Rare compared to a woody

Geez Ron, I bet mine is worse tho, pretty gnarley - must have been packed with salty bondo and smoothed out & primered (advertised as solid too...) - Nynone4 - you'll regret selling the Woody - just put it on a shelf until you get to it, looks pretty solid for a project too. Thinking my Tinny needs to be a Woody eventually....

Actually doesn't look that bad Ron! It's inspiring to see the progress.

I think I'm going to be selling my project. Just can't seem to get my momentum back on it as work has been taking most all my free time lately. I have lots of dreams and drawings to build the car... just not the time right now. :-(

My latest round of powder coating! Any guesses to what parts aren't for the mini, and what they are for???

It's about what we thought. I am going to take off both front wings to see exactly how bad it is in there. For now it looks like both front wings, both sides of the windscreen scuttle, a panels inner and outer, rear pockets, rear LWD extension, front floors, most likely both corners at the rear, lower bottoms of the doors, and both lower portions of the rear doors. I am happy about how straight the rear quarters are, not a ripple at all, the rear load bay, rear floors, both inner wings, and firewall, and the top is in pretty good shape. It is in better shape than my S was. I am just eager to get it up on the Spit and start getting into it.

so how does it look after blasting in your opinion?  is it more or less solid that you thought?
