    WOW

    You are transforming that 2 door there. Some excellent fabrication work

    I will watch this one closely - what colour scheme and interior are you going to use?

    Do you all get given Car Repair course at school in Sweden??

    Every time i see a restoration thread by anyone from Sweden the quality of work is amazing.

    Big Thumbs up to you Hakan

    I think your Tina will be better that when she was built by ford.
