After the crap effort with the filler the other day I decided to have another go and made sure that i got enough hardener in it this time Embarassed

Looks a bit better now and is smoothed back ready for some top stop







Now i can get on with the O/S and hopefully get some primer on it next week Very Happy

unfortunayly I've not done much too the old girl in the last few weeks, due to buying the t4 and loads of other stuff to do....

After going to see Nomates today and having a nose round his cars (which rock) Twisted Evil
I found some inspiration and got back in the workshop..

Fitted up the rear wings to check the lines on the rear quarters and to test fit the rear valance and decided how i'm gonna fit it fixed or removable..Valance needs some work to make it fit properly as the engine bay seal runner don't line up Rolling Eyes

Trial fitted the decklid to see what it would look like without the no.plate light



Now i'm not sure if I should run with the tombstones or go for custom rear lights Suspect or if I should go for a solid decklid

What you guys recon?

It just so happens that I have a solid lid at the unit.

Although I do like the 2 vent.

It looked cool on my black bug

Defo the tombstones IMHO.
Custom lights are hard to pull off to look as if they are meant to there.
