Before pics and a couple of after pics of the grill 6/80

Every nut bolt screw is original and has been cleaned up and coated/chromed.

This grill is the first piece completed. It was started two years ago and now I am starting the process of putting it together. I brought a donor car from the South Island and after blasting the car and to keep the authenticity of the car I used parts to replace worn or broken parts. So I have plenty of parts left over if anyone is interested.

I have also attached a couple of pictures of the painting process.
Inner cab, inner doors, engine bay, boot and underneath are being painted black and rust test done.

The final exterior coat will be painted last once the car has been completed. It will be painted in its original colour. I am trying to get the car back to factory settings
