That is one of the best weathered cars ive seen the rust effect is spot on, i love the shattered window, youve obviously put a lot of thought into this and it shows.
Totally gobsmacked a truly outstanding piece of weathering.

Just had a wonderful catch up on your terrific build. The memories came flooding back when I followed Mikko's career back in the 70's. I treasured his card in my Top Trumps pack:smiling3:

Hi Stuart
That is looking superb. The recent photos could be of the real thing. Great attention to detail. You set out to create a barn find and you have nailed it. Looking forward to the final reveal.
