G'day all,

I have been busy on my FE for about 12 months after finally getting a shed big enough to make restoration possible. It was a Melbourne car pulled apart by a mate in the 90's and stored ever since. I thought is was in fairly good order but after hundreds of hours of cutting and patching it is ready for sand blasting and priming. 2 x front floor pans, both outer sills, both A pillars, both C pillar bases and a thousand other holes and rust repairs....I thought I would post some pics to celebrate.

While I'm at it, I have been searching the forum trying to find out which tin master cylinder reservoirs were original to an early FE, I have a few tall ones and the squat short ones; what is the story here. Thanks. Al

G'day again,

After a big couple of days, everything is blasted and primed. Big job that one for those that can appreciate it but a great feeling to have it all done before winter so I can get on with all the panel work and hopefully ready for base coat when the weather warms up again. Not too many surprises under the paint but a few more weeks of patching and panel work with a few more digs and daylight through a few areas that were hidden by paint.
