Life under the knife...

I'd like to be able to pause to add some sensible prose in relation to the work that Andy Westgate has been doing with such aplomb but I'm just too busy.  Instead here's some more photos with scant explanation.

First, here's some pictures of the 'aeroscreen' - a scuttle extension really.

Next, the clever little panels that will be scalloped around the main roll cage hoop.
The above square is a new part made from a mould taken from the body.  What lies beneath:
Next. the area around my shoulders is part-way through being re-modelled to give me more room.  I'd be lying if I said that I totally understood how this will look.  In Andy we trust:

Finally, my raised boot panel which is an idea unashamedly stolen from Adrian Newey's E-type.

Oh - almost forgot, the car has been seen in TKC Magazine and Complete Kit Car this month - in each case showcasing Mr Westgate's skills.

Andy's work is almost done.  I can't wait to actually do a bit on the car myself this coming weekend.

Hi, I just lost a couple of hours at work (well, it's Christmas lunch day) reading your blog from the start of the Gemini project to date, very interesting & reminded me of building my car - in some ways the same as your, in some ways the opposite.

Mine's a Fury, & is also built in a late '50s - early '60s style, that's the similarity, the difference is that it's a road car & has only been on a track once.

Yours is coming together really well & will look fantastic when finished.

If you're interested, you can see mine here:-
