well you deserve a frickin medal with all the sh1t you've gone through and not losing your rag with those bast4ds, hope you do get it finished one dayMinimal progress recently, some extensive detective work has revealed that this guy had done something very stupid on a personal/family level which led to the closure of the business. The guy has now conveniently disappeared off the face of the earth.
The 33 will be going into long term storage in October and unless something revelationary happens, I imagine it will remain there for several years. Having already lost around £25000 on failed restorations it’s very difficult to justify spending another £15000 or so to put it right, particularly as I now have a deep mistrust of bodyshops. The car has great sentimental value so i’d like to think work will resume one day but there may come a time where I just have to draw a line...
