As the weather will be good this wk/end the parts will be primed then a light sand, the lights are glued up now, once the parts are painted they wil be fitted back on the car then to install the radiator & thermo's.
I cant wait to get her back on the road as she is way more power then the LANE plus I miss not having a shift kit.

Sorry don't mean to be picky but it looks like the front bumper drops a little on the RHS of the car (LHS in picture). The gap on the indicator looks bigger.

Is it just the picture or are you going to rectify it?

Nice work on the whole project. Do it yourself and you get a better job done. :D
