Hi

Nice progress :!:
Just wondering; what kind of glue and paint are you using?

Can you share these details?

Grts

Thanks for the kind words. The drums were vapor blasted and came out great.

Lots to do, looking at the handbrake assembly at the moment but have to move the jack-stands to install it and then onto the front suspension.

Still got all the brake lines , fuel lines, gear linkage etc to do and the engine is not in yet along with the clutch and throttle setups.

Need to get the wheels to the blaster for powder coating along with some small parts and get the interior and top done. I did at least receive the interior which was delayed 5 months due to shortages.

Still lots to do.

Mark

Hi Bart,

I used a 3M spray glue for the sound material, it didn’t stick well in places and so I hand to peel it back and used a gorilla glue in those patches. I wouldn’t recommend using 3M.

The red paint is Sikkens, it looks amazing and my painter excelled himself.

Cheers
Mark

I used Eastwoods satin chassis black.

Worked well and looks good. Two very thin coats.
