NOTE DONT USE A ANGLE GRINDER WITHOUT A GUARD ON, THIS FILM WRONGLY SHOWS
ME USING A GRINDER WITHOUT GUARD. I HAVE SINCE FIXED THE BOLT ON GUARD AND
RE FITTED. VERY DANGEROUS. ALSO BROKEN GRINDING DISCS CAN FLY OFF AT HIGH
SPEED INTO YOUR FACE, WHICH CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY. PLEASE OBSERVE ALL
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. I WAS LUCKY. I APOLOGISE FOR PUBLISHING THE VIDEO WITH
THE GUARD OFF, I DO TAKE SAFETY VERY SERIOUSLEY.

Pt 12 of the restoration of a Ford Cortina 1971 GXL (early model) .
Discovered in a field in Essex. Abandoned for 24 years. Left in the open,
exposed at the mercy of the elements. Left for dead. Dismissed by critics
as too far gone. Only a mad man would attempt it. Beyond the pale. Scary.
Rusty. Riddled. Overtaken by mice and hazelnuts. Chassis holding on for
dear life. The last dying moments. The reaper only inches away. The sickels
mad swipe, she could have been lost forever. .... and then....came the
This is the story, the full story of a mission impossible. A story of
resolve. A story of creativity, one mans vision against the odds to hatch a
plan to rescue one of the early survivors. A true gem. A real rarity. She
will be re-built. This is total commitment. Maxium power. This is
attricion. This is full throttle. This is round the clock. Non-Stop
