Re: GT40 Australia #27
Thanks for the nice comments guys - they make a big difference when you are at that frustrating stage of racing against time, just so that you can go head-to-head with the RTA bureaucrats !
In view of the time constraints (have to pass all RTA tests this year, if not actually have it registered), lots of "nice" things have been postponed - carpet, interior trim, stripes, lots of bits painted instead of ceramic coated, etc. When (if) it gets registered, I'll drive it for a while to get the initial crazies out of my system, then go back & do all the short-cut / omitted things.
The paint needs a cut-back with 2000grade & a buffing - if I'm not happy with this, it will get a final flow-coat of clear again. Once the paint has settled, I'll put white side stripes on, then think about centre stripes. Bill Bayard's car is a similar colour to mine (with side stripes) & he has done a mock-up for centre stripes - they really do look good, so I am leaning that way.
