couple of updates.

The car is now in highfill








My new plates arrived.



Ok so I have cut out my factory seat mounts and made new ones and welded them in over the weekend. I gained about 3" of head room which doesn't sound like much but made a world of differance to where my knees meet the dash.



My turbo fender extensions arrived





i brought a jeep radiator and the fit is perfect. it fits the front bar like it was made for it.



and i think once its complete this wrap will be the perfect touch!

Small update. I had a delay on*the left fender. the one I found he decided the shipping was too expensive and pull the plug on me after 3 weeks of stuffing around. So I ended up finding a mint NOS fender but as my*luck would have it. It was Run over by a forklift and pancaked the nose. Lucky for me I know when I'm outta my depth and I didn't want any filler in the nose of the fenders as they do hold the bumper and take a bit of flex and a crack was the last thing I wanted. lucky for me I know an amazing metal guy who file finished the finder to brand new.*

This is before


After



Now that was sorted I could move onto fitting the turbo extensions. This what I thought would be an easy job turned into a nightmare. But you can see I got them fitted with the help of the Co. whos a gun with the tig. while we were at it I did a indicator delete.*

I started the last test fit and wasnt happy with a small bit so i changed it.



Drivers side was nice



This side needed a little more love



the air dam for the radiator is done



shout out to the old man for helping out for the day



my mint right fender. ditching the fiberglass was the best thing i ever did no more cracking worries or worries from people leaning on it when your not around, the front feels so much more sturdy now too



By By **** box fiberglass! it was a big hassle and really big cost to change the fenders but i feel it was worth it as ill be keeping more genuine parts on the car



maybe when the backdate thing dies down in 10 years I might change it to a back date and add an air cooled motor for my 40s haha i plan on keeping it for a while and the base can be changed so many ways and have so many looks i think this one is here to stay. Next stop is paint. I have all of these updates on video I just haven't got around to editing as I had to go to Europe for a month for work and China for a few weeks which threw a spanner in the works.but ill be back to normal over the christmas break.

I expect you'll deliver a better experience if you resize these photos to about 800px wide before uploading...They don't scale well in posts.
