A great every daily driver. with no rust or body issues. paint looks good but would not class as concourse. Could do with cutting back in places to get a better finnish. And the doors could do with re adjusting for a better fit to the bonnet. General detailing etc its very good but room for improvement in some areas.
Further improvements and get the carbs set up and tuned etc and it a unleaded head. But starts easily hot or cold and very usable. Only covered a few hundred miles since completion.
