    I have got the passenger side of the car sanded now down the full length of the car. Lots of gelcoat holes have appeared which will need attention.

    I decided to take a break from the dust last night and started looking at making the bonnet fit properly against the body for height and also panel gaps.

    Firstly I fitted six rubber pads to bring it level with the body. This worked perfect at the front of the bonnet, but the back of the bonnet is still sitting a bit low. I intend to build the back of the bonnet up slightly with filler at the pad positions to bring it level.




    Then I took the bonnet off the car, turned it upside down and roughly filled the perimeter of the underside along the grp joint.

    Bonnet scoop front opening cut out done. The gap between the inner and outer skins need filling.

    Whilst in the cutting mood, I did the passenger side vent. It still needs finishing and tidying up.

    Another great update with good clear images.
    10/10 once again

    Just look back at what you have achieved in little over a year.
    This build will give inspiration to others that want to build a kit

    You have demonstrated welding, fibreglass skills and engineering solutions to
    various problems that you have encountered…. RESPECT

    Like others, I am looking forward to the next installment.

    There are times when it goes a bit dark and it seems never ending, but I am determined to complete it

    The gaps are all filled. Next will be sanding and shaping!
