Body rebuild on FF 007

Hi all,

I have just started a full body rebuild on FF #007 with the tedious process of dismantling. There is a long way to go but here are a few early progress photos. This car is a Vignale car and is so different (difficult) to work on compared to the other Jensens I have worked on before.

Interesting find. Is this original? 60,000 pop rivets can't be wrong

Jensens are a way of life.

Hi Stoo
I just tried to have a look at 007 photos and it tells me Dropbox file is not there?? Also did you find a Voxon 8 track Cassett. I have the one from my MK1 they were a 2 piece unit with a small power amp that sat near the steering wheel. If you are interested I will clean it up and see if it works but I do not have a cassett.

Stoo, you are clearly a glutton for punishment.... hope it goes well. I struggle to simply change the oil cooler hoses on my (relatively) simple GT motor so hats off to you.

And... I think Photobucket (not sure about Dropbox) have started to charge for their service now. If you don't subscribe you lose your pics. There's more about it on the Jensen Owners Club (UK) website at https://www.joc.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=25809
