The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 8,800 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 3 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The rear was shot, a combination of serious rust and bodgy bog and paint meant we couldn’t save the rear. The beaver tail section from the trunk lid down and from the middle of each tail light was completely cut away.
Outer section came from the vp-autoparts.se crew and the inner was fabricated by Dennis and the Older Cars crew.
The fuel filler and complete surround was shot. This is a notorious problem area and nothing was salvageable. Dennis fabricated a whole new section and its perfect. Added a threaded brass cap that sits under the cleaned and primed filler flap to ensure that no water can enter the fuel tank.
My volvo looked good but this was due to bog and some sketchy panel work. The entire rear end is being replaced and the outer rear comes from http://www.vpautoparts.se but this piece was entirely fabricated by hand by the skilled Older Cars crew. Last piece of rust!

There is nothing more pretty than this, amazing restoration from a wrecked Swedish based P1800.
Dented, pitted, tarnished and half paint stripped they have been reborn!
A long long time between posts but a short note to say the rust is gone! Gone! Beaver panel last bit being replaced and in progress but its reassembly time!
