Yes.
New sills, new drivers side wing, underside of car re waxoiled or something similar, both rear quaters re painted to remove a couple of areas that have rust on them, these will be done once sills are back on and I can drive the car to body shop.

Anything else I can find whilst its off the road.

^^^ the same as above plus more, new outer sills and front side panels, underseal/waxoil wherever possible while the car is in pieces, currently has windows out, seals out, sills/side panels/bumpers off. Wheel refurb and new rubbers.

Hopefully a leather treatment will happen soon as the blue bolsters have discoloured a bit, any hint/tips on products and how to do it or where to go would be appreciated.

...then all fluids and filters just in time for the spring!!

This product from a German dye supplier is a good match for estoril blue seats,

Planning on a replacing the wires that feed thru into the rear hatch as the repair just fills the trunking too much,so new connections along with cables and joined inside the car,then a replacement rear screen (thats just arrived,as my heated screen has started to go milky on the corners again! along with the heated element not working all over and then very slowly!my rear wiper seems to stop in strange place's and does not park correctly it is a new motor so i suspect a replacement module anybody know what one it is?

The first time mine failed it needed a new wiper motor, just under £200 I think.

Second time it required a new control unit, around £75. Believe it's located behind the glove box.
