Hi Dave!

Yes! I've been fitting the grilles to the car. These are the ones made from Martelleria in Germany that restores these for BMW. I am currently waiting on the driver's side outer grille surrounds to be made and shipped, then I'll fit that to the car too. The 3D printed plastic grilles I had made were just about perfectly sized, but the metal lip around the edge needed to be formed better. If you look closely, the grille sets into the metal which rounds over. The grille doesn't sit on top on the metal. It's a subtle detail, but it matters. I'm close. I like the way its looking.

It's a very slow process with these details but think the end result will be well worth it.

Can't wait for paint!

Cheers
Dave

Have you seen this? Hans Stuck beating the crap out of a 507 at Gaisbergrennen in 1959.

Hey Dave!

Haven't posted any updates since they're boring and not overly exciting, but I've turned a page and am in the final block sanding stretch!

I'll have more in the coming days/ weeks leading to paint. Next week I drop things off at the chrome shop. Woohoo!

Thanks for checking in!

Cheers
Dave

Thanks, Mark! I need to do more, but making vids means less time actually working on what it is in making the video about!

Here's the 220 round and some lows that need to be fixed. I also needed to fabricate the wood header and extend the other bows on the donor top I'm using. Also made up the retaining strip which will go into the pile of chrome parts I need plated. This is just a sheet I used to see where I needed to extend the bows.

The rear bow needs to be extended and the middle two raised with a foam spacer. That should match up with the original lines. Should be down to 320 by the weekend!

Cheers
Dave

This is the sister car to Chassis 70079, Elvis' former car, which were both owned by the late Jack Castor.
This is the blue car in the videos showing the two cars together.
This is the color combo of mine when done!

Cheers
Dave
