Cheers for the pics! Tucked up nicely by the looks of it, so should not deteriorate further, pending resto. G.

Hi nothing major yet, will need rear inner valance and outer sections etc but that was obvious, front valance seems ok but will "poke" about the rest of the bodyshell soon, will keep folks updated, but assume the work will be common to all fastbacks? ton

Hi sorry for the delay, just stripping the car down, lots of areas needing attention, without asking the obvious, how does one get the gutter trim off without damage? there are no rivets etc, so It is either clipped on and over and maybe glued in place, jag mk2 gutter trim is glued on with some rivets so just asking here first as it's a good set of trim and want to preserve it.
