worship Makes me feel quite inadequate but has at least inspired me to go and top-up the oil in my car. (well you've got to start somewhere Embarassed )

Great choice with orange btw.

Keep up the good work jeff. Now subscribed. Thumb


Wow. That must be up to a few hours straight of watching me drone on. Surprised
That is enough to give anybody nightmares!
Hey, getting out there and working on the car is just as much fun as driving it (well almost Wink ).

Jeff, I've just ordered a 16 inch extractor fan off eBay ready for my spray booth, just wondering what you made your filters out of?

I actually ordered the filter material off of ebay as well. Can't remember exactly what I searched for but just look up spray booth filter or something like that. It wasn't overly expensive, and it works a treat. When I changed the filter the other day, it doesn't look like any of the paint got past the filter to the fan. I was very surprised.

Well I am straight back into it, and after what seemed like an eternity of sanding, I have finally got the body painted.

Here is the video.

Looks great!

As I mentioned earlier, I took inspiration from your spray booth and had a go myself! Wouldn't have even tried it without your videos! Thumb

Looking good there mate!

I think that stripe pattern will look awesome! Looks like you've managed to get the clear on nicely without much peel too?

It does have a bit of orange peel, but I will be clearing it a couple of times yet, and hopefully the final 'flow coat' should be nice and flat. Then I will probably cut and buff the whole thing as well, so it should hopefully be like glass.

Finally done editing the latest video. This week I have been busy painting stripes. Some of you may not like the colour choice, but I think it works. Have a look and let me know what you think.

That graphic you have going on the back looks great very clever take on the Porsche graphic.

Love the colour choice too.

Legend mate

I have been busy getting stuck into painting the roll cage, and doing the final flow coat of the car this week. Once all of the painting is finished I will tear down the booth and get stuck into the engine.

As for the engine, the guys at Performance Developments in LA have reached out to me and they want to help out with building a special engine for this project. I still need some parts.

If anyone has an aluminium case, later model heads, cam decks or cam covers for a reasonable price, let me know. They can be in the US or Aus (or anywhere in the world for that matter). You would really be helping out to make this build something special.

Thanks guys, here is the video.

Jeff.

Well I have been busy again this week and I have chopped the car back AGAIN, and flow coated it AGAIN, but this time I have a much better result. I am very happy with the way it has come out and although it will not win any car show awards, it is not too bad.

This week I have gotten myself some wheels and before I tare the booth down I decided to paint them up. While I was at it, I wanted to give the front and rear bars another coat of clear to chop out the edges from the black lines I painted.

Here is the video.

Well this week I have been busy getting my hands greasy again, and I have started tearing down the engine.

Thanks mate, well this week I have finished tearing down the engine, which meant splitting the case and seeing what else I inherited for these previous dodgy engine builders.

Another week of messy work. This week I went through to check that all the parts are within spec and in good condition, then I get to cleaning them up ready to be shipped off for machining.

This week I had big plans to get the dash and the fuel tank painted up, but once I started in on the fuel tank, I realised it was more work than I planned.
