Picked up some extra wheels. And the last ones of the rusty places on the body are repaired. At last!

Yes, you got it right! 7j13. Problem will be finding new tyres for these. 13r60x205 seems to be the max. these days. Any Suggestions? The Dunlops are 225.

I'ts been a while, i know...here is an update. Found some light collision damage on both front fenders en left door. Again more work to adress that. Bodywork is allmost completed now. Gave the epoxyprimer a light sanding and hope to shoot te car in a sprayfiller next week. Blocksand that to eliminate all imperfections and spray it again with a paintprimer. Sand this down, and we are ready for some color. Finaly! As Elton John sang in '83, I'M STILL SANDING...Or something like that.
