Hi all

Been busy with the 145 and had some 'life' experiences so couldn't post for a while. Quick update: I garaged the 145 QV last April 2014 to powder coat the subframes but then it turned into a project and one thing led to another. Lol!

Hopefully someone will find some of the pics interesting for their own projects maybe. The pics I'm posting are a reduced number. If anyone wants to see more pics of a specific part of the car that maybe you cannot find on this forum let me know as the car is still dismantled and I can take more pics.

The car is on axle stands. Wheels, exhaust and hand brake cables are detached.

Enjoy..

Make sure to label and bag ever single nut and bolt!! Take lots of photos too as these will help reassembling at some distant future date..

To be continued..
