    i know where your coming from 69 ford but i like the wings to appear to finish and the grill to fit inside if you know what i mean.

    I would've gone with the chrome headlight surround and bonnet trim, but I'm a MK2 fan and that's my opinion, look's superb though.

    no it has a standard cam, was advised against a high lift cam as it runs a turbo.

    i would like to try the chrome paint over white as i think it might give you a more silver finish rather than the black chrome i have.
    getting very close now with the car, i only have the gauges in the dash top to rewire as im getting a few weird going on,s and it dont make sense so i am just going to rewire and have done.
    car starts straight away now when the key is turned, i have adjusted the fitech to tick over at 800rpm but it does seem to hunt a bit from 850 to 950rpm so i might take it down a little more and see what happens.

    got the grill and bumpers back on and its amazing how its changed the whole look of the car.

    i have left the outside of the grill in body colour.

    i think it looks way better in chrome than the copper wrap.

    it really is like chrome, well impressed

    i think with a bit more work it could be better, i just went with the instructions when i painted it but i think with a bit of messing you could make it look better.

    got to leave these now till tuesday before i can put the chrome paint on.

    also changed out the badges in the rear pilliars for chrome ones .

    That's such a clever design, hats off to you mate

    Did my front indicator and rear lamp reflectors in a aerosol chrome effect paint , yes it does come out a bit aluminium but gets better as it dries out.
