So on to the bodywork now, which I am leaving to Neal, as I'm next to useless at it.
This is what the car & colour looked like before starting, (minus the rear wings)
Note the stainless between the nose and the suspension components, this is being removed and re fabricated in GRP
Off comes the nose cone
The stainless is more visible now to the right and through the nose, it's fit was quite poor so we have created a better fitting template from steel to use to cut the GRP when its been fabricated by Neal.
Here is the first stage of GRP matting applied over the old stainless
After several more layers were added, the old stainless was removed and the whole lot strengthened from inside by layering more matting. The lower piece of stainless was retained and glassed in to give some good mounting points and extra strength.
Neal sanding down the matting ready for body filler
Applying the body filler
Now we've run out of filler so cant continue for the time being....
