Hi Tim,
Great thread, I've really enjoyed looking at what you've been up to. It looks as though you've had a lot to do and it's great to see the work being done to an amazing standard. The car is going to be better than new when it's all put back together!
The dash especially looks great. What did you use on it, was it Nick's favourite product?

Andrew.

Thanks Andrew, yes the dash was originally black and came with a few lower panels too. I made a good complete set using part of those and part of my original grey panels, and yes it's been refurbed with Nicks trusty HVP :cheers:

Yes.... judging by your refurbished parts, it looks like you're handy with the paint too! :)

All joking apart, your silver Laser looks stunning. I'm guessing it was fairly new when that photo was taken.
I bet it's the one car that you wish you'd never sold.
