Cheers guys.

Got the Go Wing brackets I made fitting nicely. Bit of filling required but should look great once painted. Have to enlarge the holes on trunk frame to get special nuts to lock up to the skin.

Nice to be working on my own project .

Been busy  doing jobs and have been doing some sanding. Last Tuesday was meant to be the day for some colour but I am so slow doing last prep that it happened on Wednesday , even then I did not get the bits and pieces done. As friend to give me more painting tips and he said put plenty of clear on as this gives you the chance to colour sand if you get runs. Am keen to paint all the car myself so tried out my skills on the front valance. Mixed results, the colour went on great, clear did as well but some runs. Am impressed with the shine , just got fingers crossed that clear sands ok.
 Am off to the USA, Salt Lake , Utah for a white Christmas holiday with wife , brother and his family. We all fly out tomorrow for 2 weeks . Wife and I are calling in at Seattle and Los Angles . Got a few car parts waiting there for me. Therefore no cuda work till new year.
  Was real keen on a tour at KIndig Customs , but don't think it will work  :(

Pretty color, you can sand out the runs, might need to touch it up. Have fun here in the US.

From the pics it appears to have turned out real well.
Enjoy your trip to the states. And parts...

Looking nice.  I'm envious that I had not painted my car.  I'll practice on the next project. I hope your trip to US went well.  Cheers.
