Fitting bumpers have added age to the car instantly, like the rear ones.

Thanks very much - I'm am very lucky and I haven't actually got my hands dirty once. What they used to call a 'cheque book engineer'!

One of Richards favourite sayings is it's all in the details and I agree. His team have totally nailed the shut lines - perfect - so when you add the bumpers, to me at any rate, it really does look like a production car. There are (always!) still more details to go of course...

It's quite amazing what skills are out there (sadly some of them are dying out) I can't do half the things I see people doing on this forum so it sometimes feels a bit sort of fraudulent climbing on the shoulders of Nubodi's and now Bonvilles work.

Talking

At the risk of being banned, on the 8th picture down, the full on rear shot,
Is it just me or does it look like a Nissan Figaro


Sorry couldn't resist

The rear bumper does give much more of the original 250 convertible look.

Can't wait to see the grill.

It looks like they have got the shape spot on. Hard to find suppliers who can get things right nowadays.
Probably doesn't help that most things now seem to be driven by price, not quality.

Hurry up with the picture of the grill!!!
I wonder how much they would charge for a batch of grills?

If somebody took a mold they could see if they would fit the coupe as well........

Are they stainless or steel to be chromed?
