Every restoration shop should do one so here it is


Its a 10 yarder but looks quite nice.

Time to strip


There's a lots of part so the journey is long........

Paint is very patchy close up


At first it looked like a flat back and detail will do but no....... Its a mixture of partial paint and repairs. It going to be interesting to see what's under here (oh no)!

Wheels away!


All four corners stripped. No serious signs of rust yet

Cataloguing parts


Its a slow process but absolutely necessary to bag and tag everything.

That V12! its big...... very big


You've go to love the big V12 but oh my its heavy. The strip is well underway soon to be a bare shell.
