Are the pictures not there? think I’m going to give up on here?

So after sleeping on the quarter light situation there are just some jobs which you just have put in the iPod headphones and turn it up, tap your foot and keep calm!

Missed the actual event of dad hitting the quarter light with the technical adjuster, so I recreated the scenario however I think the continuity is wrong to the keen eye observant viewer.

That is weird, is it just this post or all my posts? I’ve tried it on few devices and it seems ok. Sometimes if I’m uploading images onto google drive it will temporarily turn the images off.

What sharpe eyes you have there Charles! Only took 6 years to find one but it was worth the wait.

It’s currently at the media blasters which he said he can’t do it until the end of January but I’ve been going there and taking the underseal/seam sealer off and plugging holes and taping up the doors etc.

A MK1 PI, and in my favourite colour too! I think white PI's are gorgeous!!!!
P.S. Where do you find the time to do all this restoration work Ross? There is only 24 hours in a day....I struggle to get my cars done and I only work part time (and that is only occasionally!!)!

Hello John, I’ve just added dad to the signature at the bottom as he is the driving force, the reason for my interest in classic cars and now I have no life but this hobby. Dad has been retired from time we bought the french blue car and was a retirement project. He wanted a mk1 pi from the outset but they are rare in unrestored condition so we settled to buy the mk2’s the Carmine Red one was a bit of a whim or to good to pass up. The mk1 came up at an inconvenient time as we knew his one was going to be finished in a few weeks.
We were talking last week saying these past weeks it has been full on and it was borderline full time work on his behalf and me with matchsticks in my eyes doing evenings and weekends. But there are 2 of us so the jobs are halved.
