    Great result!
    I love the engine bay and it all looks so fresh. You must be stoked.

    The colour is vermilion fire, just loved it after seeing it on a 4 cylinder GT about 15 years ago at a NSW club show in Sydney and thought bugger it. Paint is a couple of years old now, was originally bright orange. Drove it 60 miles with a smile plastered on my face today, so tomorrow its back underneath to fix the oil leaks.

    Awesome, well done. You'd have to be the coolest man on the road driving that.
    Happy cruising Drew.

    Very nice!  Give me a paint job like that over "patina" every day.
     
    I'm guessing the battery is in the boot but where the heck did you hide the washer bottle?

    Couldn't fund a  good under dash tray anywhere, so I made a temp tray for the passenger side and mounted the washer bottle (opal style) Its a bit ugly but at least I am driving the car it again. Waiting for inspiration to get back in under that damn dash, had it apart too many times.
    Mark.

    This might inspire you.  Les, who is well known to a few here, makes a nice fibreglass one.
