Hi MG

She'll is currently (finally) getting media blasted to see what horrors lurk below and then back to cutting bits off before welding more bits on. Photos to follow. Only other update is I am considering using a modified Red 9 design front set up as the Porsche 964 front wish.bones are proving tricky to fit under the bus with any sense of suspension travel.
Thanks for reading and more updates to follow.

AT LAST! an update and some progress. After almost 7 years of prevarication (code for having 2 children) the Duke of Boots finally went to SPL in Dudley for a leisurely dip in an acid bath..........

For me dipping was the way to go given the Swiss Cheese that was underneath. It was also a very easy process, drop shell off, wait a week, pick up stripped shell and relatively cheap £1300. Very happy with finish.
