shes going awesome, she was only in the crib for 4 days, once she was regulating her body temp properly she got out into a big girl crib :)

Shes just passed her planned birth date (18th) and shes actually just re-gained enough weight to be past her original birth weight, so all going well and she puts a bit more weight on and we'll be able to get her home!

in other news i've done absolutely nothing on any cars hahaha

but i have assembled a cot and baby change table :punk:

yeah it looks decent enough! the two in the above were actually metric (something i had left over) but i need to see if i can find imperial bits so i can do some other stuff on the car cause i dont really want to have to change to metric where its imperial already.

But the main reason i wanted this was for the engine cover on the bedford to screw it to the floor using them.

yeah shes going really well, just over 15 weeks old now, shes had her first christmas :) got spoilt as you'd expect! Shes still small for her age but shes gaining plenty of weight and shes developing well, starting to be able to grab stuff now!

And of course shes just adorable ;)

Despite stinking hot weather with dads help we got a good bit of panel work finished, the whole rear is now primered (needs a few more touch ups with some spray putty in a few spots.)

This back section was pretty fucked from previous owners rust repair (section below boot) but we did the best we could and used bog for the rest hehe :)

This is a spot where i had some surface rust, use rust converter and steel wool :thumbup:

Even though it needs more work, primer makes it look so much better!

Next plan is to remove the diff and paint under the floor.
