A little more progress today,
Rear outrider cut outs completely glassed over and filled,
Dashboard underway, have formed a lip around top edge made from 8mm tubing sealed in place with filler then shaped and fibre glassed over,, instrument pod secured and taking shape, will be laying on wood veneer to give an original dashboard look if all goes as planned, trying to avoid the kit car image.
Tried my best to avoid any sort of bulge but the twin carbs left me no option
In true Blue Peter style heres how it went.
One Lemonade bottle halved
Then lined out with glass and resin.
After roughly marking the angle I wanted filled the shell with water
Sprayed in some paint (Silver was all i had to hand) dark would be better.
Once dried it leaves a line to cut out
The ridges and flat spot can be dealt with later..
Smallest cut out made.
And bulge started to be fixed and filled..both top side and under bonnet to be fixed for strength.
Will update on completed bulge once done..
