Thanks for the comments everyone, much appreciated, the suns out today and I want to get it out in the bright light to see how it looks, will take some more pics.

@Jaguartvr - I am told hot air gun ran over the surface, and also I was driving the car around for some time before painting so its had a chance to acclimatize. fingers crossed on this one though. Grill surround is painted the same colour as the car, its easy enough to replace if something better comes along . I spoke to the painter about extra paint and he said would be problematic doing touch up due to properties needed, so alternatives being looked at.

@DaveP - Yes black is a consideration, however I want it all blingy but may reconsider once all back together when I see what what it ends up looking like.

I think you could wrap the grill surround in chrome vinyl

Looking forward to seeing this put back together, it should look amazing.

Also glad to see I'm not the only one with extra holes for fitting the rear lights.

Good luck, Paul.

Ok, started to rebuild today.

First took passenger door off to fit mirrow and handle, also drill some drainage holes (@Jaguartvr - good idea!)

Also took opportunity to clean up some overspray on base of windows, but no too worried as will cover with Trim at some point.

Next was the numberplate, front grill and first fog light, oh and fitted uprated gas struts, they work but some mod is needed to the brackets as they touch/rub. Also noticed that the side front wing drivers side has been slit and reglassed when Nubodi had it, its an excellent job as it brings all the gaps and surfaces together.

Mocking up a bonnet wind deflector today......

More photos and dimensions on this link: https://www.flickr.com/photos/134265...h/28114382091/

As they didn't have one of these on the only real car I have seen and measured up (Ferrari Museum in Italy) I ended up studing many pictures of those cars that have it on already and with the use of the computer worked out from various perspectives the relative dimensions compared to the height and width of the front air in take. From that then determined the overall position and size, etc.

Screen will be perspex and either 2mm or 2.5mm width I will ask for a couple to get made up so I can replace, when I get the inevitable stone chip!

Angle seems to be between 5 and 8 degrees with the top slanting backwards to the front windscreen, however some fine tuning will be undertaken at point of fitting.

I would wait until the whole car is fitted up before fitting a bug screen, sometimes less is more. It will be a bugger to fill and paint the holes if you don't like it. Maybe wait until someone fits one before painting.
Anyway pull your finger out, your not making enough progress, Chop Chop!

Yes good point about the holes, do you know anyone else having one made and where from? Seems silly to duplicate effort.

Progress slow as further work needed before getting road worthy, don't worry I am doing it on purpose to let others catch up!!! I don't want to be one of the first to finish, as need to 'steal' others ideas

I think you're making as much progress as me!

Did you get your wind deflectors done?

I managed to visit Chrome FX the week he was on holiday!! Going back next week.

Hey Smash!

Car is away at the moment being worked on, I have got a few others lined up to do somethings on it, so will be driving it too and fro this summer to get it detailed.

Wind deflector is being designed currently and am awaiting for quotation for bracket, I think the screen is pretty easy to make (2d and all that) but will rely on Bracket. I think I threw a curve ball as want it shiny and good looking from front and rear perspectives, but I'm patient so no worries.

Looking forward to hearing about Chrome FX from you as and when you get to see them!

Have a good summer!
