Slam panel and inner radiator side support panels all fitted along with cross member. I wanted to paint the inside of the front cross member as this won't be seen once the front panel is in place. I also painted the area between the inner and outer panel whilst it was easily accessible.





Whilst I had the spray gun out I thought I would paint the back of the front panel before fitting. The welded areas have been painted with weld through primer and then masked up.



Front panel all lined up and welded in place.

Thanks all for kind words and support.

I haven't been near the car for a couple of weeks due to work. But i did decide I wasn't completely happy with the rear wing repairs and so off it came. The new one is almost ready to fit but does need a little more fettling when i get time before it gets welded in place.



Door fitted to help line up new panel. Front wing and bonnet have also been temporarily fitted to ensure everything is in the right place.

Thanks guys. It was a good car to start with Lee, but i always wanted it to be as good as i could get it. I have taken it further than expected with the metal work, but I'm hoping not to have to revisit the bodywork in years to come.

Well both rear quarters are on. I'm just working around the car sorting the last little bits out. Small bits of welding, door and wing gaps ect.
The reason for this post is my attention will be on the underside of the floor very soon and paint. Now I want it as close to factory original as I can do it myself. I'm guessing what Mickey Stuart did with his RS2000 broadstipe is similar to what I'm after, so I'm guessing dove grey down the trans tunnel and boot floor, white on the floor plans, chassis and wheel tubs arches under wings with some black over spray in places. Unfortunately with photo bucket I can't see Mickey's thread so does any one have any pictures of an original or there take on how it should be painted. The more pictures the better if you can take some time to help me out.
I'm also looking towards refubing all the suspension and rear axle, what colours/finishes should the struts axle and all associated bolts be.
Thanks for any help in advance.
