    So lots happening and time for an update

    The sandblasting really did a number on the roof so after 2 days of heating and shrinking we had enough so I bought another shell and we cut the roof off and will do a transplant









    Body work is going well too







    I picked up an old V8 SuperCar Spoiler that I'll use for the rear wing







    Clutch has turned up too so another piece of the puzzle sorted. Very nice bit of kit

    Hey Mate, we have a Car Show my club runs (Small Ford Sunday) in 2 weeks that I am hoping my will be at all finished so we are pushing hard

    Do you have any measurements of your side mounts (horses heads) for your rear spolier. I'd love to copy it as I'll get it laser cut from Alloy I think

    Cheers

    So first topcoat color is done in the engine bay. This will match the interior too. We are painting in 2pak so you can spray straight over the primer layers.

    Looks great but got a run in the worst place possible too.

    Hey Mark, It's grey! I can't remember the color name but we chose it after discussing it for about 2 mins at the paint shop

    It looks a bit brown in certain light but its come up quite well considering we kind of just guessed

    Cheers

    Yeah, I thought a lot about it but as my car is a bit of a homage the the DTM Series in the 1970's we went with grey but we went gloss as the Matte is too hard to clean

    Hey Mate,

    Was up till 3 last night so thevend is in site

    Weve decided to just get it to the show in undercoat thrn paint afterwards. We'd hate to rush it and not do the hest job we can

    The interior will be complete though so it should look pretty cool anyway hopefully

    Cheers

    Matt

    Yes, We thought about rushing the final painting to get it ready in time but decided to wait and do it properly

    The car is now 80% built and sitting on a trailer ready to go

    I'll get some pics up tomorrow after the show but to say I am happy is an understatement

    PM me Mark if you want a sneak peak

    Cheers

    So we had Small Ford Sunday today run by my car club (Rallye Sport Owners Club of Victoria). Was an awesome day with over 300 cars turning up. Keep an eye out for a write up in the next edition of Classic Ford Magazine.

    So Saturday we spent the day just throwing a few bits in it then put on the flares and got it on the trailer













    Here's the pics of the build and from today

    So I've looking a round for a while for somewhere I can get my dash flocked. I couldn't find anywhere so decided to do it myself

    My dash was pretty cracked so needed some plastic filler to fill in all the cracks then a good sanding to get it all smooth

    Then coat it all in glue then sprinkle on the Flock

    I'm really impressed on how it turned out. It needs to cure for 72 hours so I'll put up more pics once completed

    Here's a few pics of the before and after
