Hi all well after a lot of retouching and smoothing I've got the dash on the Shelby satisfactory, its not great but it will have to do, I've made some break pipes from the sevo and added the vacuum pipe (not sure where it fits on this car but its usually on the inlet manifold somewhere)

Don't be so hard on yourself Ken, the dash looks fine mate and remember the camera is always much closer than normal viewing distance.

Keep on trucking mate you are doing fine

Hi all, well whilst doing some weathering on the engine bay I started to think all this work on the engine and engine bay and you wont see any of it when its finished so, I thought, what about an engine hoist and doing it with the engine being removed, now my question is would it be possible to remove the engine and gearbox complete or would I have to separate them (which would then mean making a flywheel and bell housing and the splined shaft for the gearbox, also what else would be removed to get the engine out, I assume the injection system?

Remove the radiator, front grill and the engine should be removed with the trans attached. Draining those dang things is a messy job if you can avoid it. Most mechanics I've known usually do it that way unless they're doing an engine swap. Otherwise it's much easier to remove the trans after its pulled out. More space to work in.

Hi all, here is the last update for a long time on this one

really not happy with this so I think I'm going to box it up and shelve it for a while, before I throw it at the wall, cant put my finger on whats turning me off it, I think its just the fact that nothing on it is really up to a standard I'm happy with, the paint job is not shiney enough the engine is really not one of my better weathering efforts (certainly not up to the bike standards) the door shuts lets face it are laughable and I've found out the doors open inside the wings not as I have them, it just all adds up to a piece of rubbish (yes it can all be rectified (fairly easily)) but the shine has gone off it for me and if I force myself to finish it I can see it taking a flying lesson.

Hi all well my son has given me the motivation to finish this, its going to look radically different though.

My daughter has been touring the USofA in one of these 

So I'm going to convert this and give it to her for christmas, I've made a start

Try some fumeless oven cleaner and let it soak in that for a few days.

hi all this is fighting me all the way, I bought some barrier coat and sprayed it with that then gave it a coat of gloss white and its reacted with the barrier coat, you cant really see from the pics but there are little wrinkles in the paint so Im hoping sanding back where the wrinkles are down to bare plastic and re spraying will solve it.
