Awesome day today!
Most of the panels are secured onto the body now but only a few things have been gapped properly. I just really wanted the panels back on so they could be towed home securely on the body instead of strapped down behind a ute.
The flow coat came out amazing! The guys at J&D Quality Smash Repairs usually give it a polish too, but I figure it would be best to do that after I finish assembly. A few little extra bits need to painted and both windscreens need to be fitted up, but that's about it and I should have the car back mid-next week.
A pretty cool Lotus Elise was in the shop too 🙂
Installed the boot lid, rear bar and than rear garnish. These panels have been gapped properly.
Using brand new bolts and flanged nuts with washers wherever I can.
New rubbers 🙂
The doors/rocker panel have had their rock-guard removed and everything smoothed out. I've kept the black section though, it's gloss black and will go well with the lips/sideskirts that will also be gloss black.
Bonnet and front guards are on but not gapped yet. These panels will be removed as soon as I get the car back though, keep them safe while I get the engine and wiring done.
Starting to look something like a car now!
