    Well with the arrival of the tunnels soon I thought I would attack the old one with the cutter



    Lots of little bits done tonight like the old holes on the front floor pan which go into the chassis rail plates made and welded on lots of other holes welded and ground back so were getting there slowly

    Tonight we filled a load more old pipe holes and filled the holes in the rear quarters where the old X-Pack wings used to be riveted plus some of the old holes on the rear panel, looks a lot better with the holes filled !

    Also picked up the bonnet from X-Sport in Basingstoke "thanks John"




    Tadaa
