Bout time i updated this

Masked up the old girl and gave her a few coats of highbuild primer







This showed up a few areas that I'd overlooked Suspect so it needed a bit more filler, and has now been flatted back, needs a bit more work before I give it another coat, but the workshop is to damp to paint in Rolling Eyes


Today I made a start on the wings, and welded up the bumper holes on the rears



and the wing top indicator holes on the o/s/f



They need a skim of filler but pointless yet as got to bare metal them

Haven't done away with the bumper mount yet as considering using it to mount the new indicators in Cool



What do you lot think?

What with Crimbo and a few other things going on, nothing has been touched on the old girl for the last couple of months No

Things ae starting to look up though, got her moved to the new workshop at the weekend while the sun was out, Cheers for the help anton Cool

So now i've got a bit more space thought i better crack on and do something Razz

Today I pulled the engine out and mocked up the new rear valance



Had to trim it down a bit to get it to fit properly but now its all welded in Very Happy



Hopefully get somemore done tomorrow

I've been looking for some wheels for the old girl that would be a bit different from the norm, but wouldn't cost me a fortune Wink

Worked out what pattern the front hubs had been redrilled for and then managed to turn up a set of rims, ticked all the boxes and I've not seen them on a bug for years....Recon they'll suit the look well afro

Rear wings are off and started to strip down the rear end for lowering, gotta get the rear hubs redrilled now
