Absolutely beautiful. The metal finish on the radiator cowling looks perfect. Such an iconic car, great work.

Great WIP! Any big snags so far? Looks really great with the yellow stripe painted.

Thank you, so far, no big problems... Typical mfh, testfit a lot before painting and learn the instructions. I have just found out, i could have put a lot more parts on the tub prior to painting... So now i have a second batch ready to mount (attachements for the plumbing along side the tub, attachements where the struts go from the engine on to the thub,...), and the fitting is tight, because the tub is already painted and cleared. :roll:
