Good skills, sir.
What car is it based on?
I'm sure there is a market out there for them if tv he price is right, and worth your whole at that price.

A lot of the cutting to the chassis and all of the welding has been done along with all of the filling of the panels, to the point where it has been sprayed......badly.

An awful lot of the modifications have been done to the enging bay too, the water bottle, air con condensor and radiator have been moved, as well as the battery tray relocating.
Hinges for the bonnet and boot are all done.
Hinges to the doors done.
I'm sure there will be some cutting and welding to do somewhere

It'd make a lovely project for someone
There is still a lot of work to do to it.
I haven't tried to start the engine, as time and the cold at the moment have been against me. i am assured by the previous owner that it runs lovely. been the 3.0 petrol V6, they are a very good engine.

Not sure what else to say really,....it's a project that i'm not going to have time for due to other commitments and too many projects.

Spacers for front and rear wheels
4 x Original Ferrari Modena 18 inch wheels with excellent tyres
(wheels and spacers match each other)
Replica Modena mirror housings
plus a number of other items.
contact me for details

V5 in my name
Obviously a non runner and will need trailoring away.
It won't leave here without full payment
No PayPal, Cash on collection only
No messers, please, just a nice, easy, genuine transaction

I'm open to offers for the car, the wheels and spacers, or the whole lot.

i don't do facebook either.
where the wing comes to the a pillar has always looked a little wide, and with adding the 27mm to the a pillar has made it look even wider.
i didn't want to fill the side of the screen with additional rubber or plastic so went this route.
I'm going to build the wing up in fibreglass so it will look correct......hoprfully  Grin

thank you.
I've put Pu sealer under it too, to stop any rattling and dampen vibrations.
I plan to lay a massive piece of chopped strand over the roof and rough back the quarters and A post fillers to make it into one. What's your thoughts?

UPDATE (said in a Dennis Farina fashion)

I've been busy with actual work and not done a massive amount, but have made good progress.

I've fitted a proper metal roof, as, let's face it, the fibreglass idea is shite.
After roaming the scrapyard armed with my fibreglass panel, i found a suitable donor...an 04 BMW 3 series. the scrappy bloke is a mate of a mate so he said "cut what you want off it and it's free to you today", off to the van i pop for my petrol Stihl, stone cutting saw with a 12 inch metal blade in it.

(picture to follow)

I then got the help of a friend today who helped me fit it up, he's shit hot at this sort of thing
we cut the panel out of the BMW top

and also formed some A pillars from the C pillars of the BMW

then we put it all together with packers to hold it all in the exact perfect place, every measurement matches left and right

we then made a paper template gaffa taped to the rear screen with the shapes cut out for the boot (i forgot to take pictures of this bit)
and cut the rear

everything got continually packed in place

and welded

i'm going to form the corners in metal too

screen ready to be back sprayed to cover the messy bit of the dash

ive covered my door panels too

and cut the gear stick down and started reshaping the centre console to take the Peugeot look away a little

slapped a couple of badges on. these were £30 each off ebay and are bilted on like the real thing, and are a good heavy metal

I am really pleased with the flow of the roof line we managed to get.

I am planning to lay a thin matting fibreglass sheet over the whole of the roof in one piece attaching the rear quarters and small A post bits in the hope of having a crack free roof.

Thank you gents.
A little caress here and there and things will be perfect.
I've had a bunch of 4mm packers everywhere and it's worked well.
I will start bonding panels one by one to keep them in the same position.

I really am pleased  how it's turning out.

As I've said to someone, it's 'MY' version of a Stradale, I'm not after building a perfect replica, I just want to put strong hints of the Syradale to it.

Hi All
I hope you've had a lovely christmas.
I've been busy again, I'm having til the 3rd off so am getting as much done as i can.

The roof is covered and all the electrics sorted and fitted for the sun visors etc., also the roof fittings are fixed in

rear panel covered

put a bit of metal in the roof for support

Fitted all the panels ready for bonding

And welded the roof back on for support again

I'm hoping to start bonding the panels on tomorrow, but we'll see how much wine i have tonight!! i've got the gaps 4mm ish all round so will bond panels one by one and hopefully everything will be as it is now.

incase i don't post before, I'd like to wish everyone all the best for the new year.

Thank you for that, Mick, i'll give it a go
Yes, i've replaced the steering wheel and the seats are out, so all wiring is exposed currently, hence why i thought i'd get it sorted
Thanks again
