Mark 7 restoration project

I don't think anyone would want to take on this one. I was over at Tony and Katherine Opie's the other day so couldn't help taking a few photos of Tony's bushfire damaged Mark 7. The concrete slab it is standing on is what remains of the shed that it was in. Alongside the transmission tunnel is a small pile of grey fur. That is the remains of the body. The front right hand wheel is the only one that didn't melt into oblivion, but you can see the wires wrapped around it from the tyre that was once on it.

Looks pretty much like my blue MK 7 that was destroyed by fire 30 odd years ago. You are left with nothing to rebuild except the motor except that most mechanics suggest you don't use a fire ravaged motor to rebuild.It was pretty devastating for a young married guy with kids. Tony, I really know how you feel.
