Looks good Norm. Did you weld the doors up yourself or are they coupe doors?

thats good. that was the idea. shaved door handles on a cortina look shit cos they need something to break up the side of the car and a hq handle is very subtle in comparison.

this started out as a quick "great idea" and i thought would only take a few weeks. that was back in march.  be nice if i can get it in epoxy by xmas. unlikely at this rate, keep adding to the list of things to change.

Looks mint Norm, you can't beat a windowless wagon for cool factor. Was this inspired by the 2 door wagon drag car in the UK? Google returned Ron Haslett as the guy. Will follow the build with interest.

Cheers
