Hi Mel,
Welcome to the forum.
Superb work!
When you put it back together it's going to be better than new.
Keep up the good work,
Andrew.

Hi,
Your zinc plated parts look amazing.
Did you do the zinc plating yourself? If so, what plating equipment did you use?

All the best,
Andrew.

Looking good there. It's going to be a stunner when you've got it all back together.

I'm North Manchester - do you mind sharing where you had the zinc plating done, if you'd recommend them?

Do you have a new headlining or just take your old one out carefully? I've got to get a new one for mine because it ripped :(

Hi,
In case you weren't aware, the blue paint on the bolts indicates that they are high tensile grade 10.9. Worth knowing if you're replacing them with new ones and are repainting them to match the originals. It's best to replace them with an identical grade, not 8.8 or stainless bolts.
Keep up the good work, the bits and bobs are looking good!

Andrew.
