Default 275GT build no6

Hi all here I go again waiting on the guy to come back off holiday to paint my 250swb so started a 275GT well why not. love the shape of the 275 just a bigger gto and thats the one car I miss. going to be a slowish build this one as its a keeper for a while . spent some of the weekend building up the front end light and indicator pods fitted. bumpers on but one side is snug one has a gap so I am thinking of blending them in.

the side vents caused me some serious thinking holding everything in place till it drys so I came up with this. good job the stuff I use sets in ten mins

made a change to the dash I want a glovebox so lost one of the pods. I am a bit limited to how much I can do to it at the mo till I get a car to put it in.

Andy – It was about this time last year that I saw Kidge’s 275 in person.



It really is a lovely shape, so I look forward to seeing your latest build come together.

Good luck, Paul.

PS
Perhaps this thread should be in the Old No.7 Builds sub-forum where the other 275s are?
( I am sure this is something JG could do for you. )

managed to get both the front bumpers snug by cutting the back bracket off trimming it down and re bonding it back on while holding it in place on the car sounds easy but believe me it was not.

back bumper when bolted together did not sit right but in parts sat pretty good.so I bolted it to the car in parts and glassed the comers and along the back of the car so I can take it off make good and trim all the gaps latter.

back lights were for an other project a long time ago just so happens they fit the recces so for now I am going to run with these see if they grow on me

side vents grills fitted in and glassed them from the back fitted some L E D lights for a bit of bling

This is looking good!!

I am considering the idea of getting the 275 rear shell and 250 SWB front shell; throwing in some tweaks and making a 250 GT Lusso tribute.

Gotta get my SWB done first! (And buy in from the wife)

Cant wait to see the finished result! Cheers
