    My 2 door Consul (attempt...!!.)

    Bought this 62 Consul a couple of years ago from a chap in Oxford and got it back home..She was a nice straight runner, a bit smokey so i rebuilt the 1700 motor and put up a few hundred happy miles ..One morning in sept 07 i was awoken to find a run-away Omega buried into the passenger side, front to back every panel was damaged..
    Decided to get a complete respray with the insurance money, but in the mean time picked up a loverly running granny efi engine and auto for 150 euro..happy days..
    So with thinking cap on i decided to go all out and do some alterations..two door conversion ,moving the pillars, extending the front and reducing the rear doors, new front lights using Mini units and retaining a portion of the stock bezels moulded to the wings..new rear lights using custom billet stop/tail led's but using stock winker lenses inside peaks moulded to wings.Fitted the semaphores from the pop too..New tina mk 3 front clip to be fitted (get ready for a barrage of stupid questions this week lads ) , new motor and box , de-clutter engine bay,
    Inside new clock arrangement but for the most part fairly stock but for leccy windows and a proper sound system ,re-upholster, carpets etc..
    Couple of pix so far...weathers crap so i cant do much.....

    Sozz...just realised this should be in the Garage bit.....:****er:

    Thumbs upKool car!

    You're braver than me! I just two doored my Consul and bottled extending the front doors.
    I'm sure it will transform the look! You just have to look at Redvictors build up to see how
    it can really sweeten up the lines.
