After a bit of thinking decided that the fuel filler flap just didn't look right with the rest of the car smoothed out Smile , so cracked out the grinder and cut out the wing recess



All welded up



Ground it back and gave it a skim of filler,



its not perfect as gotta sort the front quarter yet but I recon it looks a shit load better Cool

Just leaves me with the slight headache with sorting the tank out Rolling Eyes its either use early tank and convert it for late sender unit or modify the filler neck on a late tank Suspect

On the subject of tailights, what bumpers are you running, if you have europas, use tombstones, but if not, what about grafting in a pair of early bay/late split flush oval lights, look cool as on custom bugs. Very Happy

Been doing a few bits on theold girl so thought I beter update this!

Had a problem with the fit of the O/S/F quarter that had been fitted by a previous owner, the panel was porly fitted and didn't line up with the bonnet or the scuttle panel and there was massive blobs of weld down the gutter section..

Massive thanks have to go to Anton again for getting the front quarter to line up properly Very Happy Very Happy and tacking it into place.

Front quarter welded in and the gutter section sorted



Bonnet fits properly now



Front quarter filled



Noticed that the service panel for the steering box had never been cut out when the front end was fitted Rolling Eyes



Measured up the panel on the 67 and took a template, marked it up and cut it out, needs a little tidying up but it does what it spose to Wink

Well the old girl saw daylight today for the first time in a few months

Got all the filler work finished and the body is ready for primer Very Happy

So pushed her outside so I could get the workshop cleared up!









Hope to get the shell in primer in the next day or so Wink then i can get on with the bolt on panels
