    Remember these you collected for me last year, Adam? Thought you might like to see progress :)

    Reshaped, refinished and grilles moved to be the same as those on the OEM unobtainium 67 wings and now ready for paint!

    Haven't seen the bill, yet, however:eek:

  2. Hi mate! They look great. Some nice metalwork been done there. I would have warped them and spent weeks straightening and filling if I had done it! haha. I thought you'd stripped down your car for a moment, but I guess that's someone else's shell!
     
  3. Thanks, Adam.

    Yeah, just another shell used as a dummy for fitment. The chap who did it is a very good fabricator, some things best left to the pros; they got the specialist tools and the skills to use them properly :)

    Nice fit...on the dummy shell. I hope you'll try them on yours before you paint and regret...

  5. Cry once as they say. When it’s nice work, it doesn’t feel that bad.
     
  6. Did it before the work was done, so had an idea of what needed doing. That's a good idea, I might suggest that we try again, I know they haven't been painted yet, as it's me supplying the paint; I have the colour match. IMG-20210522-WA0003.jpeg

  8. I am pretty pleased with the results, so far :)

    Obviously, no wing beading at this stage :thumbsup:

    Definitely worth doing a second dry run, thanks for the prompt @Zed
