Had a message from Ifan in Cardiff while I was in New York last week. He's done a bit more on the doors. The interior window trims are now both welded in with the 1/4 light mounts. I bought a pair of vintage American Mercury window surrounds from Ebay. The original Pop ones are bakelite, but these are steel, so I cut them into sections to suit the chopped down openings & Ifan's welded the jigsaw of pieces together.
Next job is to cut the bottoms out of the doors -they need a lot of rust repair but Ifan suggested he cuts the whole bottom out & replaces it with a bolt in panel, as he's done on other cars before. That'll make it much easier to fit the glass by sliding it in from the bottom of the door.

Received a T shirt in the post today from a mate on FaceBook. He was advertising them with a picture of a standard Pop on, but as I was his first customer he sent me a customised one Smiley

The doors.

Yes, but if I call it an Anglia everybody thinks of the later notch backed 105s.

Mole grip door handles  Shocked  Inspired by Vegas Rat Rods no doubt  Grin Grin Grin
Had a Cortina 'customised' that way till I found new handles. Cheesy

I've got a feeling they might be Loony's grips! Been on there since the rebuild began.
I'm now definitely aiming to have it done, running & the innevitable teething troubles sorted in time for the Dutch hotrod show in April. So I really need to crack on now.

I always made a point of saying Anglia when I had mine.  Must dig out my old photos!

For those that message me about it, no I haven't stopped working on the Pop Smiley
Had a couple of weeks holiday, but now I'm back in the garage every afternoon.
I've been smoothing the joints in the chassis with a smear of filler, (quite a lot of it's on show when it's roadworthy), so am sanding all that, then I'll prime it with a coat of red oxide.
Wasn't happy with the brush painted finish on the back end of the chassis, even after tedious amounts of prep between each coat. So I've had the litre of gloss black I had, decanted into aerosol cans & will try spraying it, although that won't be an easy job with the cab fitted -lots of careful masking up & probably a bit of retouching afterwards.
