More sanding. Bogging.. blocking. I want to finish this and then have a break from the bodywork and start trimming these engine mounts. Picked up engine crane the other day ready for it.

Decided to tackle the engine mounts to have a break from sanding. It needed doing before paint anyway as i scratched the firewall getting motor in.

Happy new year all. Bit of a slower update house renovations took up a solid month but now i finished what i started its back onto the crown.

Managed to high build the crown again ready for final blocking and send it to painters for 2k black so i can push it outside and start prepping panels.

Pics or it didnt happen right? 

Yeah nah

Yeah

Finally managed to get my mounts welded in too which feels like a milestone because it was out of my hands. 2 mates pulled out/mucked me around. Gave up on them and asked sheepers who unfortunately didn't keep his back straight when being bent over and is out of action. Ended up just getting a local to do it which would have been the easiest option from the get go ha. Happy with end result tho!
