Wow well done, the car has indeed turned out well and the colour looks so period and perfect. Please give us more pictures. Hope you have the side trims, please put them and treat us with those beautiful pictures.

Interior work is still a little WIP. I am getting the seats and roof re-lined. Also trying to see if I can get some more bits re-chromed...
The Ring around the horn button on the steering wheel
The back plate that runs behind the head-light and panel light switches.

Hope to get all that done soon.

Thanks so much for this post and the effort you're putting in. The paintjob and bodywork are excellent.

I learnt how to drive in a 1970 model Fiat 1100D, that my father sold off in 2000 for a real pittance. If I could get back one of those in reasonably good condition, I'd trade in my Nano in a jiffy for it, and work on reconditioning it.
