Thanks Jethro.

What knob? Oh, the shifter knob!!! That's already black chrome.

I like the black hardware look Brad.  Very sold looking and the holes make it look more industrial

Thanks Craig, I am just trying to simplify the interior a bit and get rid of some of the chrome trim. As for the door pulls, the plastic one (which are just later C2 parts but used in reverse) never did fit very well. The metal pulls recess into the panels much better. The holes are just for a different look.

How's your car going?

Slowly......jams have been primed and all other repairs. Peter is on holidays for 10 days but it may get blocked ready for him getting back.

Custom Cars and Coffee at the Perth motorplex this morning.

Car numbers where down due to other events being on. I guess about 250 cars, normally it's double that. If took away all the late model Commodores and Mustangs then probably only about 50 steel bumper cars. Only one C1, one C3 and a C6.

We had to re shoot part of the rear due to a minor blemish but that's all done now.

Just letting it sit for a couple of weeks before going on to flattening and polishing.

Not long now Brad.

Has been way too long though.

It's a long slow process Craig. It will be worth it in the end. Just take your time re-assembling it.

I am looking forward to seeing it when done.
