That's starting to look as good as the engine work Neil. The workshop looks like a professional race/rally workspace, pretty slick! When will the hanging panels go on?

I wish the workshop was mine, all that room But its not the car is at Paramount refinishing for the Paint Job, Not sure on the schedule - with me working away there is no rush - only thing I know is they have another stratos replica booked in at the end of the month. There is a lot of masking to do and all with curves, so it will take time. I will post photos as & when I get the updates......

cheers

The stratos is a great looking car & turns heads wherever you go - how it has the new paint it just looks awsome.

If you do decide to build then go for the Lister Bell STR....

That is a seriously good looking colour scheme..the photos without the decals left me wondering, but with them, it looks amazing. Will it run these rims, and if so, will it be lowered at all? This car is a testiment to your planning skills.

Thanks I must admit that it turned out even better than I thought!

The colour scheme was ok without the decals - as you say much improved with & when the lights & spoilers go on.......its going to be even better!

The wheels will stay as they are, the suspension was set for the usual 5" front/ 6" rear ground clearance but it is riding high now due to not having an engine or anything else installed..... it will lower its self when it is rebuilt fully. Everything is adjustable, so it will be set correctly again.

Cheers

Ahh, yes, well with the engine in the back this is going to have a VERY mean stance. What's the purpose of the vehicle? Track days?

Loats of positive comments - thank you all
But the biggest thanks must be to my Wife Bev who dosent mind me spending Hours in the garage, even bringing me drinks & snacks to keep me going when i get carried away. Thank you without your support the car wouldnt have made it this far.

And a small thank you to our two dogs Dougle & diesel for not moving too many things around while they are checking out what I have been doing!

Thank to all the family for helping!!
