I did indeed. Still love this thread anyway. Guess I happened to jump back and forth, and forgot to pay attention to which one I was looking at. Always fascinating to follow any of MJs jobs

I agree.. if it wasnt for this forum, the WITW threads and the members here I would have ditched my baby 8 a good while ago.

I took most of the interior out again to get the dents dealt with - all four door cards, pillar trims and headlining, plus both front arch liners.











2 days later, many dents and ripples on 9 different panels are all fixed It looks absolutely no different to the camera though!

Next job is to clean all the pillar trims and a replacement headlining and put it all back together.

It has been sold yes, although its still not quite finished.

Workshop things have been a bit stuck over the last couple of weeks due to various issues, but I'm back on it this week. Interior back in with a new headlining, and then straight on to the engine-out service and suspension, subframe & brake refurbs.

Both subframes. The front is a PF one so that'll be replaced with a good FL part. The rear is as crusty as all of them so that'll be done using the assortment of non-D2 bits we've collectively discovered recently.
