    Managed to sneak in some time to do a bit on this - 1 less back door handle to deal with now. Made up a plate & welded that in then a skim of bog, came up quite good to. Will block it back at some stage soon but she's good for now - got another wagon to pick up tomorrow for bits so wont get a lot else done to after the weekend.......

    Got out there today & got some more done, rained the last 6 days so that sure put a stop to things. Anyways i replaced all the broken moldings above the bumpers today then got stuck into the last door handle, sorted that just two of the door molding holes to weld tomorrow. Will be no door molds on this, just a rust trap as far as i'm concerned. Will sort the other 3 doors next & passenger door locks going to be welded over to - then block her back & hit her with some black satin for now just to get it on the road.
    Eyeing up some 16 inch internationals i might buy yet to for something different - anyways i'll chuck a pic up.......

    Happy New Years To All - Beer Time Here:rockon:

    Thats for sure - Limo tints & a black satin paint job should do the trick nicely, will look like a hearse :rofl2:

    Got a bit more done this morning - went & bought some thinners & got some paint as well. I no this wont be to everyone's tastes but it works for me on this one so i bought the black satin, they only had 2 litres in stock so will have to get some more later but least i can make a start. Doing in panel by panel so will work well - anyways i've got the back guard done. Came up good to, it's a nice satin just what i was after......
    Well anyways heres a couple of pics:thumbsup:

    Cheers & yeah you see a few over here now to - going back to the roots maybe. Never thought i'd do another satin car again as that was all i had when i was younger & grew out of all that but it just seemed fitting for this wagon.
    I will let out a bit of info i'm investigating at the moment & that's air brush stencils, never tried any of that before but i'm seriously considering having a go on this then going with a satin clear on top. Found a good range on stencils online for sale so could be a goer:thumbsup:

    Bit more done today, trying to get the passenger side finished. I'm about 75% through it now, started welding up the molding holes & also welded up the passenger side lock. Still got 3 molding holes to do which hopefully i'll get to tomorrow - still progress is progress.......
