What parts did you get? Rear wings , lights , front indicators and bumpers? It's pity you can't fit the early front wings and bonnet.

Let's see your ride b4 & after 8)

Keep the chassis plates for the rebuild, including the little 1/2" x 3" body plate I suggest!

Just trying...

OK, so get the picture showing on your site, right click on it and select properties, then highlight the URL (all of it as far as the .jpg at the end), stick it in your forum post highlighted and click on [img] box above.

Next problem is resizing it if it comes out stupidly small!

Good luck.
Dave.

nice solid replacement front section. I think you will have to replace the whole front from the base of the A pillar forwards if you want the front wings to fit.

ImageImageImagehave started all the smoothing work,first rear pillar repiars then deguttered roof,smoothed rear wing vents,smooth doors,no petrol flap and debaged and peaked bonnet,boot lid has also been smoothed.its rolling on a set of 18" while the new tyres arrive so i cant set final ride hieght untill then.there is a lot of welding to do around both bottom rear corners.there is about two weeks worth of welding to be done just at the back,only good news is it looks like there is plenty of room for the 19" on the back.more pics as i go.
