I know you said stealth, but sleep inducing??

But what can I say. You get more done on your car before breakfast than I do most months...

Are you putting any decals on it?
Seen as it's a track car.
Will hold judgement on colour till it's all back together and better pics out in the open.

I thought Joe would have done the dusting and hoovering in the shed.... :o
Paints not too bad, not happy with all the dusty Talbot Alpine on the roof though but it maybe polish out.. but it's a track hack not a show car..
Got the windows back in and start to build it back up over the weekend hopefully...

Similar, isn't it but as Car55 says it's not quite the same. The Ford Stealth Grey colour is darker I think:

Skoda do a 'Meteor Grey' colour that's quite similar, however:

Either way, it looks great! I also love projects like this - a real blend of proper engineering, imagination and hard work.

Looking forward to the next instalment!

Lol remember Mike you can't put any decals on it for 2 weeks, you need to let the paint harden :P Got my helmet looked out, ready for the test drive so don't put any stickers on just now incase I bend it :lol:

Just been pottering about in spare time putting things back in/on Saabocus, takes longer than you think, but it's 1st time I've stripped and built a focus...
Door seals, plastics, leccy windows, door cards etc all fitted, carpets cleaned, rear door cards fitted, rear seats fitted, bootlid lined up, looms routed, locks, catches all done, bumper plastics, grills lights etc all refitted, bonnet lined up and looms refitted, seat belts..
Rewired the facelift rear lights and wing mirrors..
Will get up to date pics later..
