Looks like the Ford "Grabber Blue" from the Mustangs of that era. Always loved the 1971 Boss 351 in that color.
The fuel cover was derived from wanting the side fill but to retain the original look. so a bit of fiddeling and i think we used the hinge from a subaru imprepeza gas flap. have as yet to see it what we have done will hold on once on the open road but fingers crossed.
NIce job, Chris. it appears you aren't going to keep the L model bumpers? The front ram-holes seem to have gone away; can't tell on the rears. But if you are, the fiberglas replicas do not add any more wt than the small chrome ones and work as well (as bumpers). BTW, did you know that #4366 is our serial number?
HI Jack, no didn't know your serial number.
at this stage i am going bumperless.

when we did the panel work we had a look at all bumper options and i decided that Tom would have design the car with out the bumpers and they where an add on. and i think the lines look better with out them. I 'll have to live with it for a while to see if i am correct.


cheers for the compliment

Chris
