I might just cut the sections i need out of the new wing and glue them on to the old one cos the gaps are all spot on and a pattern panel will be proper pants..

I had this trouble with my caddy, no matter what i did i couldnt get the non genuine wings to line up perfectly. Sad

Getting there buddy.. when she gonna be ready then?

I'll get back on it in the new year for sure been flat out working, shopping and decorating for the last month or so..
But did pop out there last weekend for a couple hours and got the rear chassis and beam mounts cleaned up and painted in stone chip.. And got some paint on the underside of the rear beam..

End of Jan hopefully it'll be done...

Cheers for the offer dude but once it's back on wheels there will be about a days easy prep on it... Unless i've buggered the side when i rolled it over..

I'll give you a shout if i need a hand buddy cheers..

Grabbed a couple hours this morning before the little'uns got up so flew out the unit.

Painted the rear axle, put the fuel tank back in then refitted the rear beam..
Then decided that i'd try and roll her back over on her wheels with a little help from my engine hoist..

Rear beam and fuel tank fitted..





Then had to try and refit the rollover frame pain in the arse that was..
But couldn't do it without it..

Her she is half flipped over.



And back down on wheels..

Cheers Steve, they're probably gonna need a 3mm spacer on the rear cos they're a tad bit close to the shock gonna wait till i've painted them and got the rubber on to see how they sit...

Yeah Scoops i hear you next door so i packed up and went..

Only joking dude didn't realise you were down there when i went i would of popped in and said hi..

I hate spraying wheels. Bloody fiddly job.
Fair play though dude, looking good. Wheels transform any car.

Whizzed out the workshop and fitted the new 60mm Jamex springs then popped round to Gaz and picked up my wheels with fresh rubber on today (cheers dude your a star)

Back to the workshop and chucked the wheels on. To find out i've bent on of the rear struts somehow so i removed it popped the spring back off and tried bending it straight, got it as straight as poss to get the car sitting right.. Gonna get a new one sorted asap....
