    If I want to warm my garage up, I go for a drive in the truck, when it gets back in garage, shut doors, temp in garage goes up by about 5 degrees!

    been fairly busy this week.
    finished up all the gearbox tunnel pieces, also cut an excess hole into the side of the trans tunnel so i can get at the slave cylinder for the clutch and made up a cover plate.











    looking very dusty at the moment.



    today been on with masking up the inside for paint as everything is going to be sprayed back purple even though i am going to put carpets on the floors just to cut down some of the road noise.



    next job is a load of sanding.

    not really had much to show for the last few weeks as life in general is getting in the way but i have seen the light today and made some progress. got the inside painted so it can dry for a few days and then i will get the underside done.
    on the big to do list is turning the cortina back to more of a classic looking car, to do this the copper wrap is coming off and i am going back to chrome. the bumpers are being dropped of tomorrow to be wrapped in chrome and the wrap on the wheels and door mirrors will get removed over the next few weeks, also some of the copper painted parts will be redone in the purple. just want to tone down the overall look of the car.
    get some pics on later in the week.

    I think it will look better. IMO the copper kinda spoilt it but that was only my opinion.

    It looked like an "Indian bizarre" with all that ****** on it after all that work, im liking the toning down idea mate and the chrome, well done for sticking it out.
    Needs a vinyl roof LOL
