A sneaky peak lol. I had a setback at the weekend, my compressor decided to malfunction (keeps tripping the house electric as soon as I start it). So I had to buy a cheap electric random orbital sander, which is bulky, heavier and less natural to use than air sander, but at least I can crack on

Well baby steps there 1 picture will suffice for now!

You are right it does look good filled, nice and clean look. Does this mean you are not fitting perspex covers?

I like the details and depth of these and there are some guides online to making interesting led conversions for them

Looking good and I like the rear light idea. Interested to see how you manage to integrate them.

Small update, Working on the bonnet shutlines, these were pretty huge and had to add quite a lot of material to bring it close

Hi Mazdarazmataz good progress - however word of caution - you will find the shape changes a bit when under tension etc mounted to the car. Hopefully in your case it won't but the alignment is likely to change...

I'm interested in your bonnet mounting can you show us how you have done that?

Jones they are just standard bonnet pins, minus the round plates at the top

Thanks, I thought that so I will try and get you a pic of mine over the day or so to demonstrate the change in shape vs. Bonnet curve.

Looking good man! Can I ask what you used to trim round the perplex? Looks great! Is it the bendable eBay stuff?

8mm stick on chrome (8 from halfords 4 meters)

Its not 100 percent ideal to be honest as the curves are a bit tight for it.
