looking good daz,

i did the same thing on my cowl panel when i had it off for wiper repairs

it is the little things that make a difference between a "nice" build and a "detailed" build

Cold air is good air. Nearly there Darren. The door jamb vents make a big difference IMO.

Windscreen and rear glass is organised to be fitted next week. Then interior install, then skids.

Thanks for checking in.

Windscreen Time

So, I sent the car off on Friday to get front windscreen fitted.

Turns out the glass had a scratch in it and when they were attempting to polish it out, it cracked. Just my luck. Now waiting on new glass to arrive.

Anyhow, I thought I'd take the time over the weekend to clean and polish the chrome window surrounds. This involved removing the anodising (oven cleaner) then using different grades of wet and dry before polishing and a final clear coat. Took a bit of time and effort but they turned out OK.

Big shout out to Dean and Mason from Bridgens Restorations at Lawnton in Brissy for helping out with the task. Can't wait to see what it looks like now with new glass and shiny window surrounds.

Next, it's on to fitting the interior.

Thanks for checking in.

Darren

Windscreen is in

After a heap of drama, the windscreen got fitted on Friday. The rear screen arrives this week and will go in.

This weekend is straightening up nick naks, running stereo wiring from front to back and starting to fit interior.

The photos are a bit crappy as the car was in my garage. I'll try to get some better shots as the interior progresses.

Thanks for checking in.

Door panels

Also got to test fit my door panels. They need a bit of adjustment to fit just right, but I think they'll look good.

Nice one. Such a positive feeling the simplicity of new carpet (and door panels). Keep it up!
