the car had all its original layers of paint and it appeared to have had at least 2 resprays on top of that. Removing the paint proved hard work as nitromorse didnt seem to do much so it was all sanded off.Quite a lot of it by hand [ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ] [ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Thanks Keith. Hope you’re feeling better. 
Couldn’t have done any of this without Mattys help throughout the build. He’s truly inspirational and kept me motivated

I'm looking at these pictures and thinking: "I'd slap a headliner in and cover up all them holes!"

Which is exactly why my cars will never be to the standard of yours. Truly awesome.

Cheers Lyndon. So far just the tip of the iceberg. You know probably better than anyone how many unnecessary or unwanted holes there are ,or just areas that can be tidied or improved.
Word of caution to anyone thinking of welding every single hole inside the cabin. When you try to close your doors the air pressure cannot escape and so you have to close the doors slowly but firmly. Open the window slightly and the doors close easier lol
