Post '79 Dyane
After 5 years of work, my Dyane is finally finished (almost).
Bought for £50 as a source of 'Spares' in 2008, it's now back on the road with a thousand miles under it's restored belt.

New floors, sills, windscreen surround, boot floor, lower bulkhead etc etc.

Tried to reuse/recycle as much as posible learning how to panel beat, weld and paint along the way as well as setting the sewing machine of fire when making the new upholstery.

Passed its MOT a few weeks back, and so far, there haven't been any issues with it. I was expecting to spend a few months snagging it and sorting out problems, but it just basically does what it's meant to.

First proper A-series for 22 years - nice to be back in the fold.
