    day two (today)

    todays little update:

    sadly the camera hasn't focused too well on the car when being welded/filled, i think in a small window it will surfice though, that will be up sometime tomorrow.

    todays mods consisted of:

    removing and welding over the wing repeaters, and ariel hole, along with the boot emblem and then repairing the wings as they were dented. this was done and i got it into the booth for primer last thing, also managed to get one of my guys start the fusor process on the sills, this was also being filmed closer up

    pictures of todays work, nothing dramatic mind haha

    total man hours today around 10,

    tomorrow, flat and paint of the shell/roof and the repair mods of the other panels

    progress for today, i have flatted the shell thats going into paint sometime this aft, the sills/bumpers are bing fusor'd right now, so they should be ready for primer early tomorrow,

    will update the thread with pics soon

    this mornings little updates:

    went into the booth this morning and painted the roof semi gloss black, i had chosen black magic to be different, but once dry i really didnt like it so decided on full gloss, and giving a good mirror like buff lol

    todays work will see me prepping and painting:

    the bonnet, all doors, front bumper and handlges etc, and hopefully getting the final bits into primer,

    here are some more pics

    sunday

    had hockey today so popped in after for a couple of hours,

    so far i have polished the manifold, and flatted and trizact the full car, then just buffed the roof. this is the initial buff as with all paints as the solvent evaporates from the clear it tends to drop.

    here are some pics

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    took these with the cam corder lol, for those who are going to ask i had a wheelie bin in the back ground haha

    heres the manifold, not too bad for an hours work, but im up to my finest polishes and paper now :(

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    not too bad but im sure when the polished charge pipe from dk turns up it will throw it to shame haha

    total time for yesterday about 12 man hours, today just 5 hrs




    its monday again and sadly the cars not finished, as predicted by some a few spanners have been throw into the works, namely having two people off and firing another lol,


    but the build continues, been a busy day customer wise so not got loads done, esp with a skeleton staff,

    whats been done:

    full buff

    built up the front doors, and a few little bits on the rear,

    blacked the door uprights with carbon film,

    thats about it really,

    heres a vid

    tuesdays update,

    still really short staffed so done the best i can today, tbh the rear bumper is really holding me upnow

    so today i have:

    fitted the rear doors up

    the roof and screen trims,

    tinted the rear lights and fitted them,

    put 5mm spacers on the front, need to order different shaped bolts for the rears(10mm spacer)

    fitted the rear spoiler and ran boot wires,

    fitted my polished charge pipe, courtesy of dk, then cleaned under the bonnet

    then gave the glass and interior a quick de-dust.

    oh, fitted the brembo decals too
