    Default Gerry's CX Restoration--restored pics

    Just to repost all of the pictures that went with Shanes original posting in 'Here's a CX Restoration For You'
    I will try to post them chronologically as the restoration progressed.
    Cheers Gerry

    This is the car as purchased in 1995

    Work begins on the first restoration/refurbishment. Not a complete resto by any means, but, OK enough to use.

    Gerry, I have saved the cached version of the 6 pages of your original thread, so if we can restore them eventually, you may want to add back the photos later.

    At Long Last the Bonnet goes back on. Now only the radiator/trans cooler/condenser assembly,battery, glass, door trims, rims and tyres, and essential fluids, etc. to go.
    Cheers Gerry
    Pity about the wide gaps and, Oops! is that a small scratch to touch up on the leading edge?????
