Hi everyone been a while since I've uploaded anything on this. Be on and off the last 6 months just had so much else going on. I have now a reason to put everything else aside to build this car as a close friend who was very interested in the car and who was one of the few people that supported me with it tragically passed away a few weeks back and now I'm going to build the car in his memory.

 

There is a lot come with this project and will need a hand with a few things and it most definitely will be one of a kind and I look forward with sharing it with you all :) so watch this space!

Evening evryone got the first update with pics.

ive stated filling and shpaing the front and rear bumper removed the sunroof and sanded the roof down. Couple of repairs on passenger door. The rest of the car is sanded down ready for primer and paint. The bonnet has already got its first coat of paint on it. i have the whole of next week off so hopefully it all should be in primer or maybe even paint :D

Let us what you think:)

Well today has been quite productive the car is all in primer apart from P/S/F door as tried repairing but too far gone so will need a repalcement (if anyone knows of anyone who has one is breaking a car could you let me know please) wings will be done at a later stage and the bonnet needs a bit more work. Front bumper is coming along nicely looks a bit differnt which is what i like. Extra browney point to anyone who can guess where i got the idea from for the grill?;)
