Finally some body filler going in. should be a reasonably clean underbody once finished. On a side note, got a piece of metal in my eye AGAIN. Incorrect safety glasses, I have purchased some goggles now! Spent 5 hrs waiting in emergency to get it removed (6pm to 11pm). Then returned again at 2.45am when the pain came back, took another 3 hrs of waiting

Just read this whole build thread from start to finish. Unreal the amount of work and skill put into this project.
Subscribed and will be following along with the rest of the journey. If it finishes like it started you will have a stunning one of a kind car there!

Who knows... maybe Ill get to see it one day even as I do have a couple sisters who now live just outside of Perth, WA. :P

OK time for an update.... lots of things happening at the moment, hence the lack of updates. Lots of body work has been started over the past few weeks. Whilst it may look like a lot of body filler, most of it ends up on the floor

Engine bay also getting a tidy up. The aim is to smooth it out a little, whilst maintaining factory spot welds where ever feasible. This already has taken a huge amount of time in trying to get it right.

Made a trip to Adelaide for work (2.5hrs plane ride). Managed to sneak some time away so I went to visit Baz, Tracy and team at Datsport. I only planned to be there for an hour or so, ended up staying for lunch :) Baz and Tracy some of the best people you'll ever meet.

Some progress over the last two weekends, first stages for getting the car ready for paint. Some polyester primer going on the areas where the body filler was used. I would hate the idea of seeing any sink back after all this effort.

Second weekends, effort. Guards, beaver panel and a little in the boot. Decide at the last moment to do anyway with the guard bumper holes. Will also cut the bracket off the bumper.
