Just seen this (I don't come on here very often) looking good so far, I think I must have taken longer than anyone in history just to fit the bodywork on mine.
Looking forward to seeing all the bodywork fitted to the car.

Oh Dan, I think I might contest you about this, I've been fettling my bodywork for about 18 months, can you beat that?

I think I'm on 5 years or so now :ROFL

To be fair though I did end up making my own moulds etc in the process

so, while the other panels are being painted, it's time to sort out rear bulkhead, engine out again!

this will be bonded and riveted in place then covered with heat reflective film on engine side and sound deadening in cabin side.
