progress

I've had a week off work.

note: no two sides of the fiber glass products are the same. very time consuming.

thanks Glen,

its the small things that take the most time,

the fitting and refitting to check that it fits and looks right .

down to the last cut and measure on most things now..

drives and moves under its own power. This was a big moment for me as I'd had trouble with the clutch but now sorted.

Not perfect but on its way.

so after 3 weekend of sanding, priming ,sanding basecoat, sanding I'm ready to......" lay down a real colour".

to be honest the fiber glass moulds were real rough with deep scratches in them and spider cracks that only showed up once I put the etch primer on the parts.

I'm not a 100% happy but are starting to run out of time.

The joys of working with fibreglass, very hard to get a quality fit and finish.

Looks great though Rich, good job.

I have to remind myself every time I go into the garage that its a go car not a show car. Hoping some stickers will break it up abit.

if you make it look too shiny you wont want to push it hard in case it gets dirty!
