I was really wondering how those side air scoops whould look like glued in after painting in stead of bondo'ing them in and then painting them. Turns out it looks really good. (just like the rest of the car) Love to see the car in person someday...

Fitted the front hood for the first time today, it turned out very nice with the cf parts IMO.






Still have to wait 2-3 weeks to get the new front and rear windows+ rubber seals but all the wiring will keep me busy until then.

Niiice!

Maybe black out the door trim? Is that air scoop adjustable? Looks like a lot more ground clearance than earlier pics...

I like the shiny door trim how it is actually, it breaks the "blackness" of the car.

The air scoop is indeed adjustable, it's operated by a linear actuator.

I'll go along with you there, but I'll have to add I might suggest adding the chrome to the rear windows as well, it does look a little uneven to me too.

Over all, just absolutely gorgeous, really mean. I may have missed this, but where did you get the CF hood from?

Have you thought about putting a spacer in the rear to get those LM's a little farther out?

Had some fuel issues, the Pierburg pump wouldn't do anything and was working fine when I started restoration.

turned out it had seized from sitting on the shelf for a few years but after some gentle pursuasion (tapping it with a big wreng a few times) it now works fine again.

Raised the rear by 1cm again so it fits the look of the front stance.
