Here are some pictures of the GT at home, I started assembling the rear but had to strip down the lights and repaint them. Will add the silver stripes later. It is going painfully slow!!!!

Great work! You spend hours and lots of $$$$ and then a buyer wants to pay you peanuts! It is only the love of the game that keeps you going! :D No wonder many cars are leaving our shores :(

I have been making good progress with the fern GT, this coming weekend I should be putting the engine and transmission back, and then it can go to get new carpets. I havent cleaned the outside of the bumpers I put back yet, so sorry for the crap picture.

Busy day again, stripped the millions of layers of paint from the engine bay components. Then took the rust off with a wire brush, then primer and a couple of coats of paint. Im getting close to putting the engine in, cant wait. Sorry pics in reverse order
