That needs a bit more than just a polish. It's good to see what the galv chassis will withstand though.
It does Ben, ideal car to have a play with though! And I feared the worst when I saw the soil, but a quick brush saw the galv still intact. I’m a bit worried about the top of the chassis where the roll bar etc mounts as that’s the worst rust on the car!

Really looking forward to seeing this one progress, it seems we bought two parts of the same car! :lol:

If you are in need of a new soft top frame you are most welcome to have mine for whatever it costs to ship or you can collect - my SS1 is going to be strictly hard top or tonneau cover . The roof isn't half bad, just the PVC windows are cloudy. Frame is solid.

Thanks for the offer, but I don’t think my plans will involve a soft top..
