Whilst the body is off and access is good I've done some interior ali panel work. The donor car had a flat tunnel top which is fine when covered with carpet but no good when the ali is the final finish. I've remade it with a radiused top which looks loads better. The bulkhead isn't finished yet, there are fillets to add to the top and sides to meet up with the scuttle panel and body sides. Some of the bulk head is visible when the body is on, especially on the passenger side because there is no dash board. One reason why I wanted a neat job.

Nice one ! At least the panels on my car were straight even though there were a few bits missing.

Also made a start on the manifolds tonight, got one side done. Need to buy a couple more tube bends for the other side as I used / scrapped some along the way. Tube fabrication is a bit trial and error for me but I'm happy with whats done so far !

I think the used weathered look will suit the car

Can’t wait to see it completed

Why not paint it in white with a black bonnet bulge and 58 on the side?

If I painted it white everyone would think it was the Chris Evans car, which was also a replica !

I think I'll go with the safe bet and the dark red option.

Lucky Your cockpit interior really looks the part.



Good luck with the rest of the work, Paul.

Gradually getting through my list of jobs on the car. I've fitted a new fuel line front to back. The original one was only tiny 3/16" bore tube which is probably why there were two electric pumps mounted in series in the boot ! I've removed the pumps and run an 8mm bore tube right through to the mechanical pump on the engine.
