Well, Hello everyone, I have been working on Moog6 all day!

So here's the update.......

 

I have positioned both clamshell wings now and they are looking great!!! I have still to drill the holes near the top for the securing bolts. I have decided to use small Chrome bumper bolts only cost me £3.99 for 4, great spend and will do the job perfectly. :clapping:

The bodywork is nearly all sanded down ready for my friend Ian who's painting the car.

The wood bar the floors has been yacht varnished and looks grand.

 

Few areas still to bring up to scratch for my liking, (I'm very fussy, has to look right!!!) Boot top still to bring round ready for painting. Windscreen frame to prep and paint up. Re-fit front headlamp, wire up rear indicator and rear lights, (Fog and Reverse wired up when support frame for rear wheel is done. Still to get this Number plate stuck. Will have a go at that tomorrow.

Its been amazing making this change happen, been great too, to write down and photograph everything which is being added to the recorded history since day 1.

 

People keep coming up to me saying, is it for sale? No chance, need at least £15.000 before I would even think about it!
