    So barring a few stickers the exterior is all finished now and the body kit is now on permanently

    The white stripe has been added and is now looking the way I always hoped it would

    Now the final assembly can be done

    Stay tuned...

    Why did you remove the roof vent for the last few shots?

    Build continues...

    Boot seal in and the fuel filler hose now all sorted so the boot is pretty much done bar the wiring



    Installed trumpets on the carbs and fitted filters







    Thermo fan is fitted behind the grill. It's only a 10" one due to the oil cooler in the way but this should be more than enough given it won't be a road car. Sorry for the crap pic...I'll get more next time

    No Aussie cars use this hole for the anti pollution gear. I just found a thermo fan switch to fit the thread
