Kevin, get your car out of there now before he talks to his mates and decides to try to screw some more cash out of you by refusing to release your car until you hand over some more money.... you've nothing to gain by leaving it there another day.... he couldn't finish it by the end of the month for a million quid.Get it out of there, regain possession of it and all the parts then put your experience with this twat behind you and get a proper restorer to sort it out and get you back on the road.

I got someone to come and take a look to take the job over and he was not keen to take it on. The wings, doors and spoilers were off the car and there were a number of rust repairs underway. He said that he thought the repairs were being done to a high standard but it was not something he wanted to get involved in.
The current guy says it will in paint next week but I believe I am more likely to be playing for England tonight against the French in Paris :(
