was just sizing this up to graft onto the car as the old windscreen was off a speedboat.

this is the windscreen nearly done and all boxed in at the top, put new bonnet on, new doors as the old ones were fibreglass and were warped quite badly,

this was the old bonnet i used to replace the rear fibreglass panel that was on (again knackered) however alot of extending and twisting had to be done to get it to this !

Some great work there - will it be ready for the International?

The original 'nose' on the bonnet (now boot) would make a great space for a third brake light...

Do you still have the fibreglass doors? Hopefully they are very light. If so I would like to buy them off you!Please email me at nigel.ngoakley@virgin.net. Thanks.

Sorry the doors were that mishaped with age and surface damaged by moisture They were thrown out, plus the tops had been lowered by about 4-5 inches to complete the look on the car. The rear panel had got serious moisture damage too so thats why i have been rebuilding her.
