    Well got alittle bit done today. I finally got the exhaust finished and I'm happy with how it's turned out
    I'm really pleased with the look, it is exactly what I had in my head and it looks great with the car in front of you, the pics don't do it justice
    Nxt just need to finish the fitment of the rear quarters to the bumper. If work ever slows down and gives me time to work on car that is

    Wow, nice one.

    Just found this thread, glad the shell was of use. Also love how you've still got the Kingsport stickers on the front and back

    Such a sick project. Those doors are perfect, wonder how much they would break the bank

    That's the idea. Think outside the norm. I'm bored of all the same stuff been done to 200's.

    Just done some weighing up of the new and old doors and boot. Saved 22.4kg in each door and 5.4kg in boot lid. That's a good 50kg out the car. I'm impressed. New doors weigh in at 4kg each and boot lid is 5.5

    Spent abit of time today and got the new boot lid on, slight alteration to hinges but a straight fit
    Also got the new Kevlar doors fitted up and hardware swapped over and all I can say is wow, what a piece of kit. No messing or jigging like usual panels, everything swapped over like it was oe part, bolted straight on
    Well pleased with everything Iv got from rt-Autobodies and could recommend them more
