Build Update

The car is all but finished now just the interior fit. Wheels are on order, hopefully have them in the next couple of weeks.

I think the engine looks really smart with the matching covers and air intake. I’ve not fitted the gas rams yet hence the trusty old broom handle.

I should be getting it into GD to have the headers and cats fitted to the sidepipes in the next few weeks.

Couldn’t resist a bit of a mock up.

I intend to paint the sidepipes black along with the roll bar. What do you think?

The Body Arrives

I picked up the body yesterday from GD. I have to say it looks absolutely stunning. They have made a superb job of the metallic gelcoat stripe and as always the whole gelcoat body is first class.

I had a busy day today cutting all the holes and masking it up ready for the underseal

A big thank you needs to go out to Andy and his team at GD for all the effort they have put into this. There willingness to try something new and push the boundaries is a breath of fresh air and long may it go on. I don't think a metallic gelcoat stripe has ever been done before and it has given them an insight into producing a whole body in metallic gel. So if anybody’s interested you know where to go.

Next stop the sidepipes.

Happy New Year

I hope everybody is well and looking forward to another year of building and driving. Fingers crossed the summer is as extreme as the winter temperature wise Hot smile
I picked up the new chassis at the beginning of November

I saw the body out of the mould just before Christmas it looked fantastic, the metallic gel coat stripe has come out really well. It should be available for pick up next week after the gel coat has had a factory polish. I’m not doing it this time as it was my most loathed job Crying faceon the last build.
