now thats when you feel your getting somewhere after a few weeks of filler and prep work ...... but its all about the detail they say so thats why it takes the time it takes

60593419_10217664718202603_1128457211975041024_n.jpg


so thats finda unto date ..... I'm currently on the filler work were I joined the front end panel the shell .... I'm about 60% through that so by end of next week I think the front end will be into hight build primer and then I move onto the bonnet , boot and X4 wings

so the shell can now sit for a few weeks and the high biuld primer can go rock hard and cts down on any sinking that would happen if it was rushed into paint ....

Over and Out perv's concider yearselfs updated xxxx

hi all

just a quick update

Front wings are now all done .... nice thick metal to work with ... metal finished most dents and then a skim of filler for fine
scratched .... had to bold them onto Bert as they just roll around when tried to do them off the car

they are original wings and in great condition so I've been luck here with the front wings

64955652_10217900961788545_8529567074308063232_n.jpg
and to save my lungs they are getting put into high biuld primer at the bodyshop as its easy to drop them down there
also they have stands that will hold the wings were I dont and these wings just roll around on the floor lol

anyway Bert is now turned around and I'm onto the rear wings and boot lid next

also ordered some paint stripper for the bonnet

Things are moving on fast

JUST FOR HERE 8) 8) 8)

Colour choice is made !!!!

His staying red :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

When finished he'll look like the photo below if I'm good enough

We lost Jack our little dog ( bad hart .. but he had a good run in as he was around 10 / 11 .... family just was in peaces for 3 weeks so we gave in and rescued another hound

10 month old puppy .... Arthur !!

So I guess that's the reason I've not been out in the cave much

Will try and get out there tonight :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:
