Wow that's a comprehensive stripdown, are those the hinges that are just visible along the rear edge of the roof? Never noticed them before if so.

Nice work Cool and nice colour Cool


I remember a costumer, who had a White Maxi.

It use to come in for service at the garage I had in 1985.

Hi Jens,

It might be because you wrote Costumer instead of Customer.
