Re: my sud went for paint today!!!!
hello all, sorry not been online for a few days, im in italy!
thanks for the nice comments, well spooted with the modded front panel,.. i have sectioned the front valance area out and re built the rad mounts to take a 33 16v rad, as its going to have a 16v engine, i have also left a bit extra room there for anythign in the future, once its painted it would be a shame to start cutting again,
funny some should mention intercoolers .. maybe next year when i have it steering and stopping as i want it..
ive also welded in plates at the rear of the wing rails / up to the scuttle to take the rear bonnet pins, front pins are on the bonnet hinges,.. front wings and bonnet are fibreglass, not very original i know, but rust proof and light :O)
i'll get some pics loaded of what i've done suspension wise as i start the rebuild if anybody would like to see that
I will get some pics of the gtv as requested too, it actually belongs to my Mum, shes had it about 25 years now!
