Looking good Darren

A great attention to detail mate.

Did you not fancy making the rear bumper detachable, whilst you were doing all this work?

I did look at the possibility of making it two panels, but concentrated my work elsewhere. Brian and Roland suggested either having a signwriter paint in the panel separation lines or pinstriping the panel lines back when I purchased the kit.

Well, I'm into the 11th year of the project, could it be ready for Stoneleigh 2020, doubt it. The longest DNA build ever

I had a good sign writer around last year to do mine, as I hate the white inside the line.
He spent all day at the house trying different ways to get it right, but because the line isn’t 100% in width and depth, if you paint it, it looks shocking..
Luckily he only did it in paint that took a fair few hours to dry, so we managed to get it all off before it all dried on.
Needless to say, we decided, after nearly a full dad this wasn’t a way forward for my car....

 Now moving forward with the kit install, good to be putting things back on
 Cleaned up the already once glued rear decklid frame, reprimered the freshly painted underside of the decklid
Got out the mastic gun and glued it back in place again
Also getting on with cutting the vents out of the rear panel
Now to leave it until the weekend, thick Polyurethane adhesive takes time to go off and cure
