First of the new oem replacement parts arrived today . Rain guard / wind deflectors . My old ones had been repaired before and I couldn’t bring myself to put them back on with the amount of work that’s gone into the car

A lot of serious attention to detail in this build

I'm also looking forward to finally see this in one shade hehe
Thanks man, will be a momentous day !
I have to make it perfect ; I only want to do this once and then just get her out and enjoy her

Final parts have arrived ! New oem rubbers for the doors and outer trims , upper door shut too along with front and rear screen trims ( we keep in stock anyway ) no more parts for the car now apart from stuff to get her running ! Excited the list is getting smaller , can’t wait to have some fun in this

Are you planning to paint the mesh as well?
Yeah as it was silver and the bottom section will be black . They resin the mesh in on the vertex kits so it is a pain to remove and can damage the fibreglass causing more repairs

That’s a shocker, I’m sure they do it in good measure to keep it secure, but yes that sounds like a bit of a nightmare if you wanted to remove it to paint separately

However being all one colour will definitely look very nice and blend well :)

Gloss black or Matt?

I have removed it on the wings and wish I left it defo wouldn’t come off by itself that’s for sure .
Bottom will be going gloss black I think, matches the wheels etc
Will clear it with diamonds like I have the rest of the car so it will have a nice pop to it
Just felt a silver mesh would be really out of place

Yes I can see what you mean, I think it would look perfect like that!

I guess well know very soon if it worked ;)

It’s a shame about the wings, I had the same issue with a vented bonnet and ended up removing them entirely

Can’t believe how much this build has progressed, I thought it would never end
Me too I must have built 20 odd s15 in this time this has been off the road along with loads of other stuff . Now I have more staff I’m hoping to free up a bit more time to get the old girl finished
