But we did make a BIG step forward over the Le Mans weekend.... the body shell came back painted in the early 70's Porsche colour of Grand Prix White.

The front section is now fully glassed onto the chassis and screen hoop, and the doors and rear body have their support tubes all glassed to the body.

Jay owner of JMA Refinishers Ltd in Wickford did a beautiful job of preparing the body, setting the gaps, and then the final painting. Regards the gaps and the front wing vents etc, I said to Jay that I did not want them perfect, as I want the build to be representative of the originals, so a bit of variation in the gap and flush is fine.
