    That's because you're EASY!

  4. The suspense is killing me. When do we get to see the new paint?

    How did you attach the brackets to the top insert? Welding?

    And did you put any padding under the material or go direct to the insert?

    Looking GOOD!!

    Better then drugs ;) thnks !

    Hello !

    Fir sure ;)

    Pictures comes in time .
    The brackets are glued instead of welded. Dont want to heat it up and trash the shape.
    No padding, wanted it as slim as possible.
    Thanks Vintage :)

    More pics please Martin when you get time. How does the interior look ?
     
  22. Wow! The stance is absolutely perfect!
    I was not expecting that paint job, I had black in my mind but I suppose we have been looking at it in black this whole time:rolleyes:! It does look good and the wheels suit it well.
    Wish I was in Sweden to see it tearing up the streets, is there a story behind the number 507?

    I saw this pic on Facebook and didn't realize it was the same car that I had been watching on this thread.

    WOW........Martin, your car turned out incredible. What a fantastic build. Thank you for sharing the journey with us. The only way that your car would look better is if it were setting in my garage.
