Yeah badass ... will much appreciate the help.

Still deciding weather or not to seam weld the main sections of the body or not. Tending towards doing it.

Tis a slow process Josh. Worth doing though I think.

I have a scraper too.

Yeah, just working out the logistics of timing between the engine build and body. We are powered coating all subframe bits. and caging it the same time the engine is having its make over.

Sweet .. interior strip will be after the mock up.. Mock up should be next week at this stage depending on the new arrivels from the states. :)

Certainly will be appreciating the help for the interior :D

Oh nearly forgot :/ a big thanks to Ray and his son Sam for all the work they did yesterday on the car before brendon and I got there... They turned a long night into a short 2 hour session which allowed us to get on with cleaning.
