Superb looking finish- we just need some shots out in the open to see the stance on those wheels and tyres.

Looks superb. More cleaning required than I plan for with mine though.
Cheers, Bob.

Very nice, especially the blended in bonnet. I also think the shorter tail pipes suit it.
Brave choice to go black.
I think the only improvement would be a chrome stick on edging around the windscreen as it looks too tall.

Very nice work Rob. I like the stealth look with the black grill.

needed to adapt a lot before the grill would fit, since all my cars have aircon....
I am thinking of making a subtle small chrome surround around the grill

Hi Robbie, nice work so far and like some others on here I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures from a bit further back to get a better feel for how the car really looks.

You mention having to do some work to get the grille to fit around the air con system, can you tell us more please? A few photographs might help too.

+1 for the mods around the aircon. I pick my new bonnet up soon and also had aircon

there are 2 different models of aircon fins, one with a big bulge on the outside and one without.
My 2.8 has the flatfin and you have to adapt the fansurround to get it closer to the rad and make incisions in the grillopening of the bonnet to let the aluminium strips slot in there for 1cm at the bottom
the 3.2M roadster has the big bulge on the outside, take the fan totally out of the frame, mount it in rubber hanging on 1 bolt from the top and strap it tight to the metal frame in front of the rad.
