Well the back is finally finished, it strange how it takes twice as long to put back together than talking apart, but it looks pretty beefy. :D

Yep a long afternoon, sprayed the roof black first last week and then when I sprayed the lacquer on can you believe one fly got on it and it was cold out side but luckily it had just about set.
Two of us last Friday whacked the heat up the night before so the car was warm came out better than I expected no flys. Will drive it for 2/3 months before cutting back and polish, have ordered my set of Yokohama’s AD08Rs and can’t wait to drive it again and hopefully it should stick to the road like :GTA :D

That looks weird on the standard rims, but could be ok if they were bigger/correct offset...

It will look great I'm sure with the Le Mans copies on there. Well done Stu! :up

Well the Atmo engine pushes it along at a fair lick with the old Holly on, but I have a 3lt even fire which I have been prepping finished the heads ported etc, got to get it balanced and then I have not made my mind up on the induction side yet several options, but will wait until I finish building it all up to that point.
