Default How far have you got now?

Thought this section had been a bit quiet and needed a new post.
So all of us that are building/rebuilding their phantoms, where have you got to now, and what is your new estimated finish date.

Myself, i was hoping to be on the road about 3 months ago now, but im still wiring, it is finally painted, and the wiring is getting there slowly, with anyluck i should have it SVA'd within the next month or two.

Hoping to get mine finished off over Christmas. Plan to have the body on the new chassis in 2-3 weeks, then organise paint and reconnect electrics. Trimming can wait until afterwards.

No progress on mine for the last 3 weeks or so - either on holiday for the last 2 or getting ready to go away before that. Not likely to get anything done for the next two weeks - 2 offspring to get organised for returning or starting university. By then I will have forgotten where I was up to so probably won't get anything useful done for the next 3 weeks either.
At this rate I will be lucky to be on the road for next Easter.

Just been catching up with various forums and came across this

Have to say that colour and light combination is seriously cool (sub zero on the TG cool wall )

Thanks Ken, Im really pleased with how theyve worked together, the clear front indicators was definately worth the extra work to get them in, gives the car a more modern look on the front in my opinion, they are shorter and narrower than the original indicators so a bit of body modding had to be done to make them fit.
The rear lights dont quite fit properly either, a lot of fettling is needed to get them to fit the body properly, not sure if this is the body thats out or because these are aftermarket lights and not quite as well made as the originals. Theyre getting there though.
SVA is now booked for the end of october, wiring is nearly finished, did more work on the car last night and i now think everything on the back end is finished, solenoid for the cover pop, gas struts on cover, all lights fitted, exhaust trim fitted etc..etc.
Need to sort wheel arch liners now, so that i can get them fitted for sva as well.

Talking of wheel arches have you checked with Norman for the temporary wheel arch extensions for SVA in case of problems with tyre projection slightly beyond the body ?
