Thanks Andy, starting on bodywork now, Iím not good or patient at getting it spot on, but I watch you on the pop and think keep going. 🤣
On that point, is there a good fine filler, I seem to have pin holes, and the filler primer is useless in my hands,

I use a blue one from the local paint shop. I'll check the tin in my garage tomorrow & let you know the brand.

small update: wanting to move on a bit I decided to try and get the wiring at the front sorted. First was headlight brackets. Not quite followed Andys post but the idea came from the pop.

Hmm, interesting dilemma.
As you say, a side shot might help.
I wonder if the body might look a bit boxy without the long wings to break it up?
Lights worked out well.

Mr Coppersmiths,
I like the old swoopy wings but I'm not sure about how they would look with the rectangular indicators. 🤔 Perhaps round ones sharing the same centre line as the headlights? I have some old bike ones if you like.
The rules are that there are no rules ......... it's your car and you build it to please you! Having said that I would have it as it is in a moment.😁
