Wow, thats a shame! Pretty sad that a car this far along can't even pull in the price of a new kit!

I think it was just bad timing probably since there were so many other GTMs for sale at that time. Good luck to you in whatever you decide to do with it!

Just an update to clear up the confusion.

I still have this car (#71) and will probably get back to it next next spring.

Just finished another car (#12). I took it as part of a trade deal when we sold #269. So I have worked on #12, #71 and # 269. I was kind of fun to see the progress factory 5 made along the way. #12 actually had glass rear 1/4 windows.

#71 has a new owner

Great news for me, for a new owner and for the car. When selling GTM#12, I had great response. One interested party I talked to didn't win the bid, but I told him I had another car that still needed much loving. I told him what the car needed, what I had already done and what I still wanted to do. Namely the paint work. Everything worked out and a deal was made. I get to finish up the body and paint it. Then he will take over the project to finish up the Go kart, wiring and interior.
I asked if I could continue this thread at least through the paint work. The new owner thought that would be a great idea.

So here we go!

Getting ready to pull the body

Letting a car sit for years in primer is not such a great strategy. Found a quit a few things I'll need to address. Worked on the front nose opening and I got the body ready to pull off and place it on the paint buck. Probably have that done on Saturday.

Got the car in the booth

Made pretty good progress. Spent a bit of time working on getting the radiator opening finished. Cut the hood grill holes and fitted the headlight lenses. Then put the car in the booth and wet sanded the body and hood to 400 grit. Still have the doors, handles, Mirrors and engine cover to finish prepping. Then it'll be ready to paint. hopefully I'll be ready to start sanding and polishing by this time next week!

Ready for paint

Just need some warm weather and check that the dash doesn't hit the passenger door. Next pictures should have some color.

Unhappy Is there any part of a GTM build that just fit?.

I received the center dash piece yesterday. Center piece fit OK but the right pod needed the vinyl pulled back and the fiberglass trimmed to fit the console. The good news is that after the trimming the door was able to close with minimal interference.
I noticed that GTM #71 has no door stops built into the hinge. So I guess I'll have to build those before I paint.
