Are you replacing the engine?

No I’m keeping the engine. It was easier for the garage to work on it with it out and easier for the engine bay to be resprayed.

A few pics came in today from the paint shop. Not as bad as I'd thought it was going to be. Overall its it pretty good shape.

I hope so. I had a mint estriol S50 which I’ve never got over selling. Hopefully when it’s done it’ll help ease the pain.

We've been all there. It looks like quite the undertaking. But it will be worth it for sure in the end.

After a bit of a delay work has started back up. The underside and engine bay have been resprayed. Tomorrow they'll start prepping the outside for paint.

That's going to be beautiful! As the owner of a silver S54, would you happen to know the paint code for the engine bay?
