    • Thanks for the positive comments, managed to get some more bits finished. Thanks to John for sorting me out with the genuine GM glass set.

      New rear screen fitted, spoiler and wiper motor etc.


      Front screen, need to sort out the bit of annoying dash that has lifted slightly


      Sunroof glass, need to sort the final fixings as the replacement uses slightly different mounts.


      Rear quarter glass in, need to change the fixings screws over, just used these whilst the glass sealant cured


      Managed to find some genuine door seals, but they were with the grey covers seals


      Used some of the Wurth plastic dye and they have come out ok

                • Thanks for the positive comments, its taken just slightly longer than planned, but the goal is to get it completed and on the road by the end of the year. Main things left to do are replacing of the fuel lines, final fixing of the new brake lines and some final trim pieces. Then fingers crossed it starts!

                  • Its been a while since I last posted, but the car is pretty much finished now aside from the door pillar graphics.









                    Its now has an MOT and Tax etc. There are a couple of trim rattles to sort and an annoying squeak at low revs (possible alternator) but seems to drive well!

                      • youve done it proud.

                        there was a chap who came on the stand at vboa rally, german chap, who had an example of 3D printed tow eye cover! he said it needs perfecting slightly but hopes to sell them
