I’ve been on vacation for the last few weeks and managed to squeese in a few hours of garagetime most days so here’s a quick catchup post.
Carbuilderselfie! Not the most comfortable position but needed when it comes to installing the glovebox and top and bottom dashpads.
Here’s a shot of the completed dash.
That black Alcantara really looks smooth. Yay!
Next task, spray the remaining three ATS Cookie cutters with some Plastidip Vintage Gold, first alot of masking and then on to apply 4-5 coats of paint.
Comes out really nice.
Here’s how it looks on the car.
…and then…. I just couldnt wait any longer. It had to come down on its own wheels. The first thing that hit me was that….its sooo low! After having had it on jackstands for the last two years, its a really tiny car when it comes down on the ground. I love how low and raceready she looks just standing there.
Well, having gotten it down on the ground motivated me enough to start dealing with the cracked front fibreglass GT bumper and lower valance. The plastic fog lights grilles were in a quite sad state so they were painted black.
The bumper came out ok but I might need to get a new lower valance as mine has taken a beating and then some. It wont fit quite right.
The last major hurdle is connecting up the new ECU, after that its very close to engine start!
