I am also missing the four front panels that fit inside the wheels to cover/hide the suspension, does anyone have a set?
I have a set, or at least what looks like a set - take a look at the photo on the RSSOC Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/5102321 ... 3710756726
Let me know if they are what you need

Dragged the whole lot to my local show a couple of weeks ago, luckily it was only a few miles.

Finally finished the last of the sanding, all the brown is now gone to God!

Cleaned out what was rattling around inside the bonnet, I don't know if I've found a new species of vermin in Ireland that gathers wire mesh to make it's nest, or is this something that Relaint put inside the bonnet cavity?

That is the RFI screening mesh.

Yes, it's the reason why there should usually be an earthing braid connected to the bonnet hinges :)

I like that. Project-in-progress displays work well at shows. I bet it got some attention.

Apparently it did! I was parking cars for most of the day but it was beside the Millers Oils stand (that's where I got the epoxy sealer for the underside and I told them if they wanted to show an example of their wares to send any punters over for a look) and they said there was lots of interest.

Tub is now at the paint shop, so I probably won't see it again before Christmas........unless he needs a hand!

Well Chrimbo has been.......and gone.

I've given a good few days preping the car at the body shop, with a little help from the expert, more sanding, scotched, degreased and masked off it was rolled gracefully on it's 4" wheels into the paint booth just before Christmas.

I'm beginning to loath pink.....

We had sealed the booth to make it relatively airtight and placed a dehumidifier in with the car, and a few bits of timber, some carpet and anything else he could find that needed drying :? . Sucessfully pulled out a gallon or two of water from somewhere, it would have been handy if the bucket he used to dump the water into wasn't beside the dehumidifier, but there you go.

And as of last night it got a coat of epoxy primer, I'm going on the tear to celebrate :pint I only took the car over to him at the end of May, no point in rushing you'll only make mistakes (I don't have to rush to manage that).

Waiting patiently for it's buddy is the chassis (with it's ultra slim pancake air filter :) ):

Looking good Justin.

Did you manage to get a set of inner wing splash panels?, I have found a set here and could drop them into the large box I will have to make for your imminent shipment of parts.

That rolling chassis looks lovely. Great work.
