Oh my god ! I really appreciate you. This job needs very very very high loads of passion. Restoration is never simple, nor easy or even cheap. I could almost see every minute detail being taken care of. As far as I remember Pennant had its own two paint color finishes, I wish you treat her with the same.

It appears the dash is being painted green as well. Just to point out, originally the dash would be in the cream/ivory colour of the outide, and the centre removable panel of the dash would be in silver.

I am quite envious of the level of work going in, very few people spend this much time effort and money to restore a Standard 10! Keep up the great work. Any way we can be of assistance, please let us know.
