Ha Ha BIG box arrived tonight with body panels :) :)
couldn't resist trying them on the chassis and oh no its in danger of looking like a car....
engine is gonna have to go over a tadge ( flexible Scottish unit of measurement) as its intake side is catching on the corner of the bulge and propping up the bonnet. at worst will have to remake the engine mounts ( not a biggie)
so at least I know what I'm doing tomorrow :)

yeah , still fighting with the insurance to get some movement and progress amazing how hard it is when your not at fault, the thing that's hard to swallow is she's probably back at work , day off for court and hubby driving her around, having a bit o a laff really........ winding myself up... look out the window .. happy time again :)
at least I'm making some steps forward, trina is taking the bus to town today so free time :) it's great when she suggests going out and doing a bit more "to keep your mind off things" ;)

ok update time, wots he been up too....
well decided that sensible belongs in a box , firmly locked and under the bed, so bought an eaton supercharger and have mounted it and started on plumbing it in.
took home a sheet of 1.2mm steel and made the sides, shaped and fitted, made up the trans tunnel sides Arghhh one spot on the other cut wrong despite checking and rechecking :( shortened the headlight mounts. So some good progress.
next must sort out bonnet catches, drivers trans tunnel side (again) and carry on with the charger install, then an exhaust manifold/ system
