I’m using that just so I can get it moving will be on the lookout for a sequential box 

Bit more done today boxes all welded up inside and outside the car 

time to start prepping the car for spraying underneath car in boot and in car inc engine bay will be sprayed first so it will be rebuilt and running 

car exterior will be painted next spring as I don’t have a heated booth

Engine and box already bolted to the crossmember it will be running this week end but still got loads to do  I’ll have no fitting issues as it’s been dry fitted last year so all will be straight forward

If you use clear parcel tape or cling film beteeen quarter and arch, you can work a clean edge, without blending arch, even seen a quick release arch before, made sense, for cleaning etc. 

I done this as above then bonded and bolted, a few days later lifted shell by the arches, they aint falling off!

Hi evo03

yes you can do that if you want to replace one at some point 

ive used white rubber gasket that the use on double glazing 

its simple fit arch tighten up till about 3mm gap is left press gasket in then tweak them up it gives a water tight seal

im blending mine as it’s not going to be raced keeping it solely for shows 👍
