1938 Stock Refurb Week 11

1938 Stock Refurb Week 11

Last time we updated you there was lots of base-coat work now complete, alongside starting to consider the interior. 

These last couple of weeks, base-coat work has continued... As well as door seals being removed - with new custom seals on order, and various interior bits of joinery seen to - and boy does it look good. So for this week, enjoy a slightly more image-heavy update - as I feel like they do the talking.
