Got the outer quarter on. They both still need a bit of face filling but its a big job for me out of the way. I must say i have enjoyed every bit of this learning curve.

Took the suspension to bits after seeing how nice Rising Sun's came up. Chemically cleaned them a bit of a rub down & a few coats of primer. Could do with some Bilstiens & adjustable springs like flea but the originals will have to do until a deal comes along.
