Mexibug will soon be heading home for me to complete, having required far more personal sacrifice than anticipated - but some of that is a story for another time/place. Remember kids that the first rule of Project Club is not to have any kind of plan because old cars have no respect for them! Retro Restoration have been doing their thing and I'm pleased with how the car is shaping up:
One unplanned adventure was trying to find NOS doors - hours of calls, many false leads plus some comedy prices. Eventually the legwork paid off and a road trip to (what felt like) The End Of The Earth yielded beige/grey Mexican treasure. Having been rescued from a long slumber in someone's shed they smuggled the biggest
spider I've ever seen into my daily, which took weeks to flush out.
I've been busy making the garage a brighter and more usable small space, have also put in hours cleaning, painting and sourcing parts because you can't just go nailing tatty old bits to a fresh pan and shell can you? Right now am doing my best to refresh and tidy up the motor, this will need to be installed fairly quickly to free up working space. I'll try to keep this thread updated a little more regularly once the car is back in my thoroughly talentless grasp.
