Assortment of parts ready for paint

We have put together a selection of parts that require a clean and paint. This will keep Pete busy on the project whilst we wait for the return of the car.

We are in the stunning setting of the Tigh An Eilean Hotel where we believe the car has been dry stored for over 15 years.
