    Well I finally did it 65 fastback

    Hi
    Well after many years of ifs and buts and next years my gorgeous ( but not perfect and not without some expletives) 65 fastback is in my garage, lots still to do brakes, some electrics, steering etc etc etc... however I am really pleased with her, cant wait to get her on the road, the previous owner started lots of jobs but never quite finished em! Oh well twas a bargain shipped to my front door for 13k. I bought cheap cause its all I could afford let the real spend commence lol

    Ill try to add some pics once I know what Im doing

    Ps I know nowt about fixing cars just me YouTube and a raft of good people Ive encountered so far,

    PPs Id tell the wife before it rocks up on the drive might make the first few weeks of its arrival more pleasant

    Looks good for 13k, aslong as there isn't too much rust lurking under the paintwork. Anyway have fun and I hope it doesn't take too long to get it on the road.

    It is said that it easier to ask for forgiveness than permission........if the parts list gets too long or the imagination too big you may find another chance to test out the theory

    Good luck
