That was a job worth doing, going by the pictures. If it was mine, I would think of now as a halfway point, in as much "light at the end of the tunnel"(I know some say passing the MOT is that point). I rather like the "before" photos too. Richard

You must be really pleased with the results Frank. Doesnt look too bad to me at all - I have seen and had repaired much worse. When your bodyshop starts working on the shell can I suggest they look very closely at the area above the front axle and under the steering box as there can often be hidden corrosion or botched repairs in this area on the underside.
Did you have the wings stripped as well?  
I look forward to seeing photos of your progress.

Thanks Chris will squirrel away that info for future use, no big surprises , just a few bits we couldn't quite see, will do only body to start with, front wings need some work, some due to rust and remainder due to modifications done by previous owners when they left off the front indicators and foglights!

Rears are fine, just needs stripped of paint, ditto other aluminium panels

Frank, I think this quote is correct and really quite apt ....

      "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."
Winston Churchill

We all know how that saga ended and I am absolutely sure that your success will as complete !!!

Keep at it Frank !!!
