Using blue tack and tape I mount some interior parts.
I cut out the interior lining where the door
should be on the driver's side.
I would remould the lining on the open door
as well as use new tubes to redo the frame.
Having a look at the engine bay from the refence photos
with the bumper and grill mounted.
OOHH NUTS!!!!!!!.. Just realised,
took all the care to remove the front grill from the bonnet (engine hood see pics above)
and place on the bumper, when my 1999 ref pic shows
the grill is NOT on the bumper as opposed to the 2001 refpic!!!!
1999 reference pic without front grill.
2001 reference pic with front grill.
New pictures below (6th August 2003-slow work)
Above started basic creation of the engine
as well the inside of the door
Engine bay with intercooler on the right, engine with exhaust manifold and a coolant tank on the left and exhaust and turbo piping
With a bit of colour, and the radiator hose attached
Back lid opened up..
Putty and sanding the door post and sill.
doing the frame for under the hood. I will place metal grills over the air intakes.
Poor job here by Hasegawa, front headlamp, note the plastic bur on the lamp, not good!!!
Even though I am far from finish, I am already thinking of what goes behind the garage tent (Ford Rally transport truck)
