Thought I'd start a new thread or post ....whatever you call it, due to all the photos on 'tuther disappearing.
just a few pics to show what I've been meddling with.....

So first pic is how I bought her, complete but tatty 1600 Laser.
The good thing about her is that she's had no previous welding or bodges.

As you can see she needs lots of TLC for her body. I've collected tons of panels including a mint complete non sunroof roof cut from an early shell.
I'm going to photograph a Capri roof re skin soon so watch this space :applaud:
now a few pictures of the stuff I've been re furbing......

I would be very interested in seeing how you go about this as I've got to do the same on my 3.0S. I'm going from sunroof to non-sunroof too.
