Posted on behalf of MikeG, a few photos to kick off a thread about his restoration story.

Mike, if you upload photos to one of the free photo hosting sites - eg flickr.com - you'll be able to add further photos to this thread.

RJ







I'll leave it to Mike to introduce his interesting project.

This car was our family car late 50s early 60s.The original onwer gave it my Farther because she thought that he would "look after it". My Dad worked in a Cotton Mill and did not much money,he kept the car running with Scrap Yard spares.During the Second Word War,he was in the Vehicle Repair section of the Engineers.With that training he was good with cars.

The car was Laid Up after a more reliable Morris Van was found.This was some time in the 1960s

The first two photos shows the car being moved into dry storage in 1998.Work started with Bonnet and Wings in 2002.

I will try to upload more photos(with out Ricks help) next
