Cheers fasty '72, I think that's the way i'll end up going with mine. I've emailed T3D to see if the sill / rocker panels they do are suitable to repair the a post area grot, i can sort the inner wing ok but don't fancy trying to construct the other bit! No progress today, working nights isn't the b...

Thanks for the welcome everyone, it is indeed the one off retro-rides, I moved it from my mates to my house last night, so it's now settled in my garage so i can start tearing it to bits to see what i'm dealing with. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/mike_d_esquire/fasty9.jpg I'd quite like to l...

Is it an early front panel fitted to your fasty? I'd like to get rid of the number plate bulge on mine, and its got a bit of grot in one of the lower corners.. are the panels still available?

Cheers,
Mike :)

1972 Fastback

I picked this up the other week, it's been off the road since 2003, needs a few patches of welding to the inner arches, the dent knocking out / wing replacing, and an engine fitting.
