Tim's 1966 Cortina GT 2 Door

Recommended Posts

Busy over the next day or so getting all the bits together to drop out to Greg for the trial fit up. Lights, Grille, Bonnet and hardware, Door hardware and NOS door skins, windscreen panel grill, front cross member. Bit the bullet and bought a new 3.77 CWP from Burton’s as well. I bought an alloy diff head hosing ages ago and a rebuild kit with all the bearings seals and collapsible spacer so will have a crack at setting it up myself. I mean what can go wrong haha

Starting to get the guards and front panel all ready for the final fit off and welding. Good to see a grille on the front again! I have sourced a NOS rear light panel so that should turn up in a couple of weeks and the last bit of the puzzle is the lower rear valence which is proving pretty elusive.

Boot floor going back in. Once finished off on to the rotisserie for blasting before final weld off. Both rear quarters have been file finished and loo superb.

Going to have a crack at setting up the diff myself. Quaife ATB, 3.77 gears, alloy head which weighs bugger all. What can possibly go wrong lol.
