    it was just a dodge job to make it look a little bit cleaner untill i paint it orange.
    ive since replaced the rear passenger door, i still need 3 more doors and a tail gate to finish of the panel work. then ill paint the jams.

    gonna keep the 1/4 2 tone as i wrecked a vr statey so i have all the mould and stuff for it. i'm also going to shave the tail gate, and put a series 3 lip on the rear bar, and put the statey numberplate bezzel in it.

    Very interesting... nice work on the engine bay and rocker covers. Very rarely do you see ecotec rocker covers and think "hey cool" but you've managed just that.

    Can't wait to see this in orange but just one opinion from me, caprice grille!

    Good luck with the build mate.

    Cheers for the comments guys.
    With the rocker covers. I was going to paint just the grooves orange, but I couldn't get enough paint in there to make it look good, so I just did the top instead. I'm happy with how they look now.
    I'm going to get a caprice grill, but funds are needed elsewhere at the moment.

    This looks like it'll be a really good build, and I think I might have to paint my rockers now after seeing yours done!!!

    Looks great, looks a bit weird with the Stato front end, but suits it too y'know? :)

    Oh yea ive seen that thread earlier today, looks very nice i think. But be sure to put yours up. Im
    Not going with the statesman number plate thing, just gonna have an ss rear lip and a numberplate box plastic welded into the bar on the right. Might go buy a stateman number plate thing actually and experiment with it
