Restoration of a 1934 Wolsley Hornet.

Good evening,
In 1971 my father bought me a 1934 Wolsley Hornet which had been stored in a barn on a farm in a small hamlet near where I live. I still have the vehicle and want to get it fully restored but have no idea where to start.

A great deal of course depends on the current condition.
Replacement second hand body panels are very scarce.
Whilst it is possible to get them made, it would be horrendous in cost.
Interior is not too bad a problem as there are a number of quite reasonable upholsterers.
Mechanically there are various parts available from auto jumblers, plus some owners such as myself,
re-manufacture small batches of consumables.
Major components such as engines; steering & axles are non existent.
Surprisingly there are a number of free wheel gearboxes to be had.
