Looking good mate, home straight in sight now, eh  Cool

I'd love a Beta coupe, maybe one day I'll have the time to find one.  Grin

Thanks Kevin. Yes It finally feels like I'm getting somewhere  Cheesy. There's a lovely Bronze Beta coupe on the Car & Classic website that I'd buy if I had the space. It has the series 1 interior which I think looks pretty groovey  Cool.

It's not that one (which is one that I hadn't spotted!). It's this one https://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C947326

It's been a few months since my last post so I thought it was time for an update  Wink. I'd made a new bumper guide bracket recently & welded it to the off side front inner wing.

As the sun was out last week  Cool I drove the Delta out of the garage & on to our hard standing (the first time in 12 years!). I fitted both off side doors & reconnected the wiring for the electric window, central locking & fitted the glass in the rear door. It's starting to resemble a Delta again  Grin.

Today I removed the old front passenger door & transferred the internal mechs into the replacement door then fitted the glass into the rear door. The back half is nearly complete  Wink.

DRIVING it out the garage and onto the hard standing.  PROGRESS.

Must have been lovely to be working outside in the air and warmth after the winter...

In Practical Classics - might be last month might be the one before - there's a Cortina on the front and while that one had a full respray the guy who did it has repainted two cars since entirely with rattle cans.  He realised the bits he'd done had been every bit as good as the pro job.  Its "just" be willing to put the hours in...

(Am sure the paint not as tough, but tough enough...)

Doing a whole car with rattle cans sounds expensive. Buying the paint from a paint factor and buying a low pressure spray system might be more cost effective especially if you will want to do more cars in future.

Yes it was a big moral boost driving out onto the hard standing, one of my neighbours came over & said "how nice to see it out of the garage". Like you said working on the Delta on a sunny day is so much more enjoyable than during the cold winter months. With regards to using rattle cans - I started using them just to protect the repaired areas temporarily as I plan to get a full respray some time in the future. Unfortunately the repaired areas cover about 75% of the bodywork & it does look a bit like 50 shades of red! My main focus at the moment is to put it back together, get it back on the road & enjoy driving it again.  Cheesy

I did a bit of work on the front bumper last week - I removed the plastic blanks where the fog lights go & fitted some black aluminium mesh which looks pretty good  Cool.

Over the last few weeks I have been tidying up both nearside doors & today they were reunited with the body shell  Cheesy.
