Very nice. Doors and sills made a huge difference, well done!

Very nice work Jeff, i like your attitude to change things that make the over all look of the car even better, the door and sill mod gives the car more of a sympathetic 250 swb look.
Ive found that the things that take time to achieve yet on the face of it look very small or subtle have the greatest over all effect.

Fantastic work, looking forward to seeing this build finished, the colour choice will be cool, a definite head turner i expect.

Hi Jeff, car is looking great and your personal touches are making it really stand out. Is your rear screen relatively flat or does it curve? are you going to bond it in, fit with a rubber seal or bolt it in as on some race cars? Look forward to seeing it in paint as that was also my first choice as I think it is a nice period colour not often used.

Looking forward to the wing/door modification. I would however like to point out that if it is simple and brilliant after all my hard work you will be taken off my Xmas card list!

Thanks Jeff
Does the door clear the bonnet when it is fully open?
The only way I could seem to make it clear was to give the trailing edge of the bonnet more curve.

Bonet on bonnet gap looks a lot better.

My passenger door wasn't too bad, it was the drivers door that was far worse!

I am so impressed with this build. As a newbie learning as I go I love the tips and pointers on here. So jealous of you guys with fully functioning workshops, opposed to me building on the drive! But hey, no point in whining, just got to get on with it and do the best you can.

Keep up the good work mate.

Could it be that as the clamshell is just a fibreglass shell that a few mm here and a few mm there would change the profile of the sides?

So on one its the passenger's side and on the next the drivers side.

Especially when the fad is to cut a slit and pull one side in.

Mine was cut on one side only - which explains why the front offside wheel catches the arch slight on light turn whereas near side is fine.

Best colour yet on a Koupe. Reminds me of the 250 hot rod.
Looks spot on without trying too hard and first to have proper window frames. It all makes the difference.

Proper door handles too.

Nice work!
