It's projects like this that make me realize just how lucky I was to happen upon my Margie in all her faded, but original glory.

Good job and good luck with the rest of your project.

Thank you all for the kind words! They keep us motivated! Wink

So in the meantime we covered the new fitted floors with primer.
Sadly i don't have a picture of the driver cabin floor at the moment.

And thats what we did during the last weekend.

Luckily our neighbour also has two car projects at the moment and built a ramp in his driveway. Such a great idea! Applause Now he is on holiday and allowed us to use it too Dancing

The ramps are great.

I like this photo because it looks like the cross-beam is held up by cones and a little step stool Very Happy
