Thanks Woody for pointing out the correct orientation for the anti-roll bar brackets,this explains why I had such a struggle to get the bolts through,it should be much easier with every thing in the right place!

Whilst on a high from all the very encouraging comments about the project (thanks to everyone who commented), I decide to crack on with preparing the bonnet and boot lid for paint. I decided there was enough rust in the boot lid to warrant getting the welder out, as usual I got a bit ambitious with the amps and blew a few holes!

Once the paint was removed from the underside of the bonnet quite a lot of rust was revealed, I am wondering if this could be a result of an engine fire at sometime? A going over with the sand blaster outside on a tarpaulin has cleared this up a lot. Next task is to remove the paint from the top of the bonnet.

Rust in what you would think were of as benign places never ceases to amaze me.

Always nice to see your other 96 though, very nice, especially your Soccerballs which I am not usually a fan of. They have been done just right IMHO, subtle flatter paint not bling shiny.

Always reminds me of John Ashley Barkers 96 which I think he said he got from near new or new, low mileage, same colour as yours, his wife sold it for about 3300 which was cheap. A solid car, with an outside respray he was never happy about, I wonder what ever happened to it, as well as his blue one. Unfortunately I lost touch with John for a few years and he died in that time. I didn,t know anything about is health or his passing until later sadly. Apparently the two stroke he had has deteriorated quite badly which is such a shame considering the work that was put into it to get it in shape with very rare parts sourced. Some people sadly treat them like a modern car without preservation in mind and they can die in a handful of years...
