Looking great, Dermott!!

You have a full-on assembly line going on over there - it's BMC's hidden production plant in Canada. :lol:

You have to do something to keep you from going nuts in a cold climate :shock: ...this winter was the worst in decades.

Hi Peter....make me laugh....February was a brutal month...frigid temperatures.....instead of doing metal work/welding...spent the month in the luxury big screen TV detail shop.....
Only thing missing in there is a bed :lol: :lol: :lol:
Was a good opportunity to catch up on all the bits that needed painting.

To answer your question....working on a 1275...a 1071 and a 970...…
Keeps me from getting bored :D

Nope...that particular car ended up as a parts car......this is a local car from an estate sale....complete car and fairly well preserved.
