Nice work Dan. Are you painting the rear bumper body color or black?

Painting the bumper body color (Wimbledon White). I don’t think I will put stripes on the bumper though...still undecided on that.

Doesn't look like a whole lot of progress, but it took a lot of time to get the front end looking good.



I've got a lot of time fitting, filling, sanding, removing everything & starting over, cutting, fitting, filling & sanding just to get the headlight covers to look good.





The fiberglass hood still stands a bit higher than the headlight covers at the front edge. Even so, it's way better than the original cars were.


I'm going to get back to finishing up the rear bumber & quarter extensions to get those looking good. Then probably get the car on the body cart and remove the suspension parts so I can apply lizard skin and probably get it out for paint sometime in the next 6 months.

Been spending a lot of time getting the door to fender gaps right.

On the passenger side, I had to add metal to the fender.


On the driver side, the front of the door needed metal added.



I also had to add metal to the bottom of both doors.

Also did more work to get the headlights centered behind the headlight covers. You’d think that would work right from the supplier, but nothing has been easy.



I feel like the car isn’t winning the cage match any longer. I’ve finally taken control and showing it who’s boss.

Dan: Car is coming along great! Obviously your profession is one that strives perfection. All the hard work will pay off once you see the body painted. Be careful declaring that you are getting the upper hand, when we get cocky something invariably goes the wrong way.
