Looking good, wish I had the sort of money you have thrown into it, would do the calais very well. Some nasty rust on mine around the drain near the blower fan, hoping it isn't the end of the car. Silver over MX is what my car is, good to get an idea how it will look once I get the $$$ to respray it.
Keep it going.

The hole on that side is mainly for the fuse box which was moved inside the car. On that same loom though is the headlight wiring, so that will be run inside the guards. The hole on the other side of the bay for the engine loom is still there, and as of last night has been stuffed full of wires

Thanks a lot James. Will hopefully get it around to the shop when it's done, might even get Anth to crack out the oxy and knock me up a dump pipe. It's funny, this time last year was the first time we met the Maatouks crew, getting Anthony to fab me up an exhaust and buying parts off him while we were doing the first conversion

Your face is a minor bun engine. Seriously though? I have no idea what that means, so I'm going to say a tentative 'yes'.

Thanks for the feedback guys. We ran the body loom last night which was a job I wouldn't wish upon my worst enemy. Also started filling out the bay with button-head stainless allen key bolts which look really good. The plan is to have the interior in (or as close as possible) before the weekend, when the motor goes in.

Nah man, totally not my scene. I can appreciate that look on the right car, in fact I love it on the right car, but this isn't the right car. With the door mould stickers and the stickers on the screens I think it wouldn't look complete. Don't worry about the ride height though, we've got that sorted

Thanks for the props Bradley, finish yours - the two will look sick together. You're right, we're going Sydney spec on it. Stickers, walls, gauges, no tints. custom yellows...not exactly LDM on the Jets I don't think, but we'll see how we go

All very, very fine decisions. You've got the yellows man, and the gold wheels on the blue paint will look hot. A Nice blue Maatouks sticker and you'll be bringing Sydney back
