Work on hold at minute building timber frame extension on back of garage to store all stripped items so till that done cant strip but had a bit of look round

Original engine

All original panels 

All glass apart from screen original etched 

And solid as far as i can tell 

No filler anywhere 

Never had anything against it hpi 

Drivers seat wont tilt 

Frame snapped a joining pin (can these be repaired) look like pressed in 

Radiator leaking 

Probably alot more 

So do i keep original or mod

Down to you, original factory spec cars worth more money, but its your car and you want it the way you want it.

Its all about personal opinion to mod or not

But costs play a major part of that decision

What ever you think it will cost will be a mile away from the final cost

Havin very deep pockets will make it so much easier

Good luck with the build which ever way you go
