Hi all

Just another quick update,
The bay is all finished polishing, came up a treat, booster has been taken back to metal and repainted in gloss black. Shines nicely in the bay, starting to put a few things back in the bay, steering column is back in, all the engine bay wiring is finished under the guards and headlights are all back in, guards are now fitted back on, and a bonus, everything electrically worked :) haha
I gave one of the guards a real quick sand back and polish and took before an after pics. Look in the attachments. The difference is incredible.

Starting on the motor now so not much being done on the car at the moment because all my money for next few weeks is going to make a start on the bottom end

Cheers
James

Cheers everyone. I didn't realise how much a difference a quick bug makes, once I get a machine and get the whole outside done I can't wait to see the finish.

Cheers
James

bug = buff?

Nice work, James!
At first glance, it looked for a moment like you'd just lit the paper near the lower left corner of the windscreen. Please don't burn this car - it's turning out really quite nice!

HK'ing - green is good.

Would love to make all Holden day but I doubt I will. If I do it will be minus all the chrome and rubbers lol. Motor should be done by then but atleast.
Hoping for September (rego) and then gonna make the treck up to QLD for the 6 banger nats aswell. Should be some good fun.

Cheers
James

The paint has come up a treat, the colour really suits. You and your mate have done a great job. I too have been enjoying the build, and look forward to each update.

Engine bay I did f*** all to be honest

Wet sanded it smooth with 1200
Meguiars fine grade cutting compound
Meguiars swirl remover
Finished with Meguiars show car shine

Same with that little bit on the guard but I will be going to 2000 grit paper on the outside. Not doing that till I get a machine but lol
Stuff doing it by hand the bay was hard enough

Cheers
James
