I expect Bob that you know Carol from St Pauls Bay who runs the Malta Classic Car museum. Lovely chap, I had the good fortune to meet him there this New Year. He tells me there are quite a few Classic car runs out there. Must be nice to have a longer season than we have here and no salt on the roads to eat away at our precious metal toys.
Keep us posted.
Peter

Well I do not know him personally to be honest, but used to know his son Mark who is a petrol head too and same age as me more or less. However he has drifted on to drifting now and is very capable in doing so too.

So the van got on the back burner for now. I have compiled a list of parts and am in the process of ordering all the body panels needed (which are quite a lot). This thing is gonna cost me an arm and a leg by the looks of it!!

Have yet to find someone to tackle the welding for me as I was not satisfied with the work done previously on one of the floor boards. Will most probably be re done from scratch.

So 2 years have passed and in those 2 years this van has moved forward!!
It is now old english white. I have not yet done a proper nut and bolt rebuild as intended but it has received a rolling resto of sorts.
How can I add photos as I do not want to use Photo bucket any more.

imgur.com works well and is quick to use.

Try this. On your Imgur photo, right-click and you see a menu. Use "save location of picture"
In the Reply box of this forum, click the Img box. Then paste the location of the picture, then click the Img box again. You should see the line below EXCEPT that I have manually put in a space after the [img] and before the [/img] (otherwise the code would not be shown but the picture would appear)

[img] https://i.imgur.com/lQIeCBm.jpg [/img]

In other words: if you cut/paste the line above, remove the two spaces and press review (or enter) the picture will show.
Note that an image always start with [img] and ends with [/img]
