Re: 1965 Velvet Green Italian

Sorry just not a fan of stickers. Finished cleaning the cab, straightened the grey card headliner panels and got everything working bar the fuel gauge. Have traced the fault to the sender so that's a winter job. Started tidying the engine, and replacing the missing detail items. Just waiting on a fe...
