Paint time
« on: May 23, 2015, 09:33:14 AM »
Final panel fit before hitting the paint booth, Pinto panel gaps are not the best from the factory I find out.

Thanks all for the kind words, I'ts been a long fun road and for the most part I'm pleased with the outcome. As for the hood Reeves1 at this point I'm not yet pleased with how it stops so flat at the back cowl area, but I have a plan that should fix that and still allow the hood to open enough. The picture I post is a  cardboard mock-up. Bottom pic is how it is now.
