WelshKiwi - I missed the comments about your exhaust hangers because I was at the Goodwood Revival.

So the only photos I took with your build in mind were from the front.







However, based on the photo that Ace posted, it is clear you have succeeded in creating a faithful reproduction of the original.

Good luck, Paul.

Hey Paul, thanks for these photos, they are superb. Awesome to see two in racing garb and both in silver/grey.

Appreciate the kind words, work going on today so have coated initial primer coat on the sills, more to do but the rugby is starting which may divert some attention....luckily kickoff in nz is late afternoon onwards so no real excuses!

Reckon Goodwood is just that iconic event that everyone has to go to....cheers.

Default Sills and trims

Hi guys, managed to finish the sills and trims as planned this weekend in between watching the rugby.

Happy with what has been achieved when comparing to the original car.

That does look excellent. Good work.

Oh and unlucky to Scotland; Ireland were just too strong.

Thanks for the positive support guys. Appreciated. This week is focussed on finalising all my bits for fixing the body, removing it, final checks and tidy up and hopefully with a mate of mine bond it on early next week. If I can achieve that and get certification clearance then I am all go on wheel arches/doors/boot and inner compartment panels.....
Fingers crossed. Oh and Wales have got two rugby games to play as well in that time!
