So as you've already realized the car is painted. I have just put the panels back on so I can wet sand and cut'n'polish the paint work. The car still needs some tweaks here and there before it'll all go together for the last time.

Love how this build thread has gone from "wet sanding" to "on the road"  ;D

(with an 18 month gap)

 

Looks great. There's obviously been more work going on than the build suggests. lol

There was a lot of little things that had to be done. When Michael was back from China I needed a break from working on the car so he took over, as a result there weren't many photos taken. Also the car isn't perfect, we have worked on a shoe string budget doing everything we can ourselves and there is still a lot of things that either need to be done or re-done. The engine is just a dirty old L28 that looks like shit, we have plans and another motor that is going to be installed at some point. The Z31 was a resto job as well, It's my car and I used it as a learning tool for this kind of work. Again it's not perfect and still a work in progress.
