It's looking good!!

How long are you going to be in town for? If you have some free time, would be nice to see the car and catch you while you're in town!

Stopped by the paint shop today to drop off some more parts and see the panels being wet sanded prior to final coat.

A great week in LA is coming to an end... seen the colour on the chassis and I’m really happy with it, so all the panels are getting done now and can finally think about moving to the final build stage....

After spending the day at CFOS today, will finish the trip by going to Luftgekuhlt tomorrow morning before heading back to Australia.

Going back together.
Rear quarters on.





Walking around Luft on Sunday I saw four Rubystone cars and nearly every other colour except Karminrot... The Rubystone 964Cup looked good, and while Karminrot is a lot brighter, once I get some black and white on it, it should tone down and be a little easier on the eye.

Looking good D. I like the look of the exposed allen key bolts fixing the rear guards and roof, they look very purposeful like the rest of the build.

Wow. Subscribed. This is going to be too pretty to race, maybe you should just keep it in the garage. j/k.

I know, the paint has come up really well, and ill take picture or two - but this car (like my previous one) will be tracked and used for competition, definately wont be a garage queen!

My previous widebody got peppered at the track and had lots of hard earned (and now trendy) patina when i sold it.
I may weaken and put some protective film on this one at the front or the leading edge of rear guards.... wasnt planning to, but will see.

Interested to hear from anyone who has done that on a track car, and complications with applying over or under sponsor decals etc and how often, if at all, it needs replacing as that would be a hassle...

(limited by the area and other cars to get the wider shot)

The front bar currently fitted is very low, and would get wiped out in hillclimbs, MK’s and maybe even some circuits at home like Wakefield Park where the track limits and ripple strips really get some use, so needed something that would sit a little higher but still have the ducting vents.



Wanted something different from the old RSR style and saw this old race car pic below, “IROC style” but suits a longhood with a centre cooler and brake duct inlets...



Found one in widebody width and it arrived yesterday so its now being prepped for paint.
Also got a Ducktail style tailbase with wing mounts while I was at it and can get painted together.
This will provide two set ups I can mix and match for high and low speed tracks, also saving damage by fitting the non splitter front where I need the ground clearance

Nearly there, down to some finishing details (for the body anyway...)
