Looking a bit like a hot rod without it's wings and doors

I could then retrieve some of the body panels from the loft. My wife helped me get the wing down as it's very large and awkward.

I then laid some carpet offcuts on the garage floor and then 'parked' the car as near to the far wall as possible, giving me space to work on the nearside wing. This was the first time I have unwrapped the wing since it was painted last year!

The camera on my phone has made the wing look a weird shape and I should really go back to using my proper camera.

This shot reminded me of this one..........(taken Sept. 2010)

Now I've just got to fit the wing without scratching it
