Actually I did not realise I had reversed the image.When I was trying to put up the pic on the forum it kept getting rejected as the image was too big and I was trying to edit it to reduce the size and must have reversed it by mistake.

That is 100 times better in condition than my 1935 ford coupe was when i started on it ;)  Now the fun begins ..Ps I did not keep any record of how much it cost to restore my coupe .. No show car but steel is real and they don't make them any more..Good luck on the restoration..Lex .. And you are right it is REAL GOLD

I think that Barney better take a photo or no photo it didn't happen ::) Although Rwork would have seen it at PMAV meet at Chiltern a few years ago...     Our computer is having a hissy fit and we can't send or receive emails .. No trouble getting on the forum though..   Lex
