OK Dallas - here you go! definitely the latest pic's in correct order. You can tell they're the last ones 'cos they're "yellow"!! (
For everyone else just a top-up update.
I've put the body into filler - a primer filler to be exact......... and before anyone beats me soundly I did nothing to the body at all - no scrubbing with alcohol - dish soap or anything - equally I have not fettled the bodywork since; and I know there are areas that will need addressing - work - massaging and general finessing. BUT, I am so chuffed at how everything has tied in together, a dozen or more times better than I'd hoped for, and in comparison to what I've done what needs doing is a walk in the park. Plus a lot of the natural bumps and bangs will be utilised as a patina or distressing on the actual vehicle - figuring that seeing as this has been naturally rought it should negate any contrived effects - or at least diminish them?
And without tooting mine own horn! - The grille was so worth doing; a bit more nibbling and it will look so much better again.
Here go then.....................
I actually feel like I'm able to make a start on some other projects now [daren't before as I would of just sunk beneath the waves methinks]. I have a lunatic resin fish to do [Yes Michael, I did gain one on the black market] but of course there's the Cat' 10 which beckons - if not just because there seems to be an underground group build going on that I'd like to join???
Anyhoo ............ more anon.
