Things I need to do before paint:

-Complete sanding and orgainze parts for paint
-WRC hood vents Just arrived and need to be grafted into hood
-interior needs to be ruffed up and I will be painting it this weekend or early next weeeked. (fingers crossed)
-Have local shop saddle joint door and roof bars for cage (wed.)
-Blast Slam Panel with plastic bead

After this I will probably have a month 1/2 downtime:

-fiberglass work on interior
-perfect one of the suede interior inserts
-finish grills
-other odds and ends

Here are the hood vents, I thought for what I was paying for these that they would come in trimmed and matching but I was wrong. These are WRC hood vents made from one of the original molds or at least they are suppose to be.

How they arrived:




Trimmed:


Close ups of Imperfections:




Fiberglass mud so I can even them out:

Been searching for hood vents for a while and a lot of sellers in UK won't ship, this will look good but they need some work, perfect for you since the car is getting painted. Sure you will but will ask anyway for pics of the cuts and fitting under please.

^ Yea I will take pics of the entire process and post them up on here. After I make the cuts through the hood I will probably reweld the hood reinforcements as I saved some steel from the old quarters.
