More progress, should be getting the fully rebuilt short block back soon-ish, hopefully have the engine bay finished but lots to do!
Black paint is chassis based that is fuel & heat resistant, I've brushed painted what you can see and have rolled the wing tops but I may flatten them off slightly and go over with rattle can for a better finish but that's the whole under side of the car/inner wings etc complete now in terms of cleaning painting, suspension refurb. Next messy bits will be the prep n full repaint hopefully next year.

Few more pics, fitted screen back in with the new rubber, tried the drivers top stainless trim section but the rubber doesn't want to seem to get right into the corner for some reason, all appears to be seated correctly so need to investigate. Still its getting there bit by bit :)

These are the new rims I want, polished America racing Torque Thrust D, 7x15"...really wanted the 5 spoke Cragar's I had on the red P6 but cannot get them any more. But these are pure filth too so they will more than look the part :cool:

At last I was able to collect the fully rebuilt short block & heads a couple of weeks ago, 80% assembled, once done I'll finish the engine bay ready for refit and first start up! Oh in the middle of new kitchen refit so it's juggling act with the car, kitchen & working from home :-$

Thanks Guys! Stu, block/heads were cleaned at the engineers & then I sprayed it in heat resistant silver engine paint before assembling it.

Tor, hopefully it'll stay clean....ish once its back on the road! :)
