cool, you've got a good starting point there. are you stickin with the grey kit?
whats it like for rust? looking at how deep the colour is on the kit it looks like its been hidden away.

deffo jelous mate. mine was living in a barn for a couple of years and the rust got to it. if you try cgb (01952 618419) you can get the arch new, and maybe the skirts. i got some rear ones from him and they're perfect.

They do rust, but not as bad as a Ford or Vauxhall of similar age. Places to look at,
 
Under the rear arch around where to back bumper bolts to.

Sills, maybe worth a look under the sideskirt aswell.

Around the windscreen and rear window (usually inside)

Battery tray.

Just to update my phase 1 has just passed yes passed its mot needing only

a fog light bulb and the mixture backing off as it was running too rich oh and

an advisory about the front brakes stating that they only just passed the

requirements at 66% not bad considering that it still has the original discs and

pads! needless to say iam well chuffed  :D . also got classic ins. for 200 :D

Road fund licence 66 :D and for the first time since 1990 she is on the road :D

looking forward now to seeing how (being completely standard) she drives

a few minor niggles remain though, the fuel gauge doesnt work some

thing is touching the body at the front causing vibration on acceleration

engine mount? and and waiting to see if it still leaks, found that the

grommet for the choke cable wasnt in properly and was letting in water,

Watch this space
