Thanks Darren.
I didn't think there was one  as there is no section for Gallardo builds on here.

As above.
Did they make one?
I've been offered one and they say it is an one.

I thought I'd put a quick update on.
The body panels are now all bonded on and I'm working my way through the masses of filling and fibreglassing.
I've done the front end as a removable, in one piece item....seems to work very well. This is all fibreglassed on the back to give strength.
I've also fibreglassed the whole of the a pillar and metal roof to hopefully stop any cracking.
I'll take some pictures tomorrow as I broke the camera on my old phone, but the new phone is here now.

That "random photo of drivers side rear corner" got me thinking about how much clearance there is for the wheel on full suspension deflection. It turns out not enough, the oil cooler needs to be higher and further in so I need to mod the mounting brackets. Photo's to follow.
This is the reason I've procrastinated on bonding my panels on. I seem to be alternating something somewhere often, and want to make sure things work right before I commit to the undoable

I've had a couple of days to myself, so have ploughed into the car.
I've had an idea and went with it

original 360 dash. Both Pug and 360 dash were cut to bits!

A bit more fettling and i think it'll look good

I've fitted up the fake engine bay roughly

and sprayed the engine bay

I'm getting everything fitted up and then taking it all apart again to do the spraying and final touches

I started it up for the first time in 6 months and it was ticking over.....then a nasty mechanical graunch happened and it stopped. now there's no compression.
I've already purchased a low mileage engine to replace it.
I've also cleaned all of the engine bay and am spraying in semi matt black.
a blessing in disguise is how i'm looking at it.  :D

I started mine in the mitred corner then pushed it all on and made the cut at the bottom of the cill in the middle.
My thought that this would be the place furthest from water ingress.
I do intend to also put some Tiger Seal inside to bond it together on my final fix stage of the build.

i did have a look at car builder solutions and they dont seem to have them.
Upon a lot of research I think that the connectors are Sylvania 9005 for the main beam and driving lights.
I'll buy some and see if they're correct.
I've still to find anything like the indicator and side light connectors.

Has anyone got any idea where to get the plug connectors for the headlights? they're a non xenon type. I'd like to do a proper job, rather than bodging it up with wires and bullet connectors.
The other question now is, do I do it red? I wanted to do it matte black with gloss black rear light and boot accents and bits of red here and there, calipers etc.
The lights are mint and does pose the question to me of 'do i go red?'
yor thoughts are appreciated

It's been a while since I've done anything on the car, I don't know where the last 6 months have gone.
I bought an original pair of headlights, and I've bought a ramp/lift to work on this and another car I have.
So, spurred on by the fact I've got to move the car to get the ramp installed, I've done a bit and hopefully can get some more bits done to it.

Is it just a fibreglass kit?
Is the metal items included?
What extras are with it?
