    Few hours on it tonight so time to fit the rear bumper and side supports




    Next I have started to blend arches and skirt to the car looks better



    Next was some more weight saving !! Now you probably thinking not possible but it was the passenger door has been skinned


    Also there is no need for a door handle so I have removed that you will see the plate put over the hole in above picture and this is it finished after a bit of filler


    So not a bad few hours on the car another step closer :)

    Lots of work done! Looking good!

    You know, you'd probably go faster if the steering wheel was on the correct side ;)

    What do you do with all the old parts that you strip off/replace?

    Most of the origional parts get slung / scrapped as they are not used.

    Things are moving along well I have mounted the passenger door skin and have mounted the boot and front bumper

    Brackets in place that are drilled and tapped 6mm to take the bolts



    And door skin bolted in place



    Next is the front bumper plates added and front bumper secured


    The top section of bumper / grill I'll pick up of bonnet posts I'll show that in another update when I come to that part

    So what was the purpose of bolting the doors on like that? Did you just strip them completely down to cut weight and removed the hinges and whatnot in the process?

    Yeah it was to loose weigh and also with it just being a single skin if it gets a knock racing any damage is easily knocked back out again.

    Also bolted on means should that door get damaged can easily unbolt and replace where if it was welded on would mean cutting and welding and trashing the paint ect.

    Makes complete sense! I miss metalworking. Whenever I'm on the road and someone cooks their brakes, it brings me back to high school when I took metal shop for two years :) I miss welding and using lathes.
