Out of interest where did you get it made and are the rear quarters curved?

I ask as one of mine has a crack across the corner. It's nothing serious and i could live with, but if i can get a replacement......

Hi Dave,

Got the frames from Goliath99, from the other site. The glass is from Pilkington Automotive in Kent.

DC had to make the frame slightly smaller as wouldn't fit but all good now.

Glass fits with a bit of fiddling. Phew.

Saw the other countach being done ( Red ) with Gold wheels, they look sooooo nice!!! Going to stick with white though

Interior is coming along now so hopefully once its painted, its full steam ahead with the fit out and then get them damn IVA forms done.

Sorry Gary, no further pics as of yet.

I am awaiting a call for me to go back up to check the car before it goes to paint, hoping its all back together so can check the gaps etc.

Will get loads then

After a few frustrating weeks I have been told it will be ready for me to see it in primer on Wednesday. Then it's paint but that will a few weeks yet as another countach is being painted week after next. There have been a few bad weather weeks though which has delayed things.

How's yours coming along?

Those are impressively large rads you've got there matey! Fingers crossed that you're all corrected and painted soon!
