Pulled out the old gearknob to see if i could make it look okay.

not perfect but happy enough with the result, the split isn't too visible but positioned it at the front so should never be seen.

Not much else been done apart from painting a few odd bits. 

Painted the diff with por15, and given the gearbox a good clean. just need to get some oil and change that.

 

hopefully next week nz drops to lvl 2 and the body shop opens so i can send the shell off for sandblasting and rust removing.

 

thanks to a few members off here have managed to sort a few elusive parts, including a set of GT bumper trim :)

Close up on that pesky/pricey trim, i used the 3m stick on stuff, works well, and doesnt create a rust trap- use a hair dryer to heat it up.

planning on getting the bumpers re chromed, but thought in the mean time id have a go at cleaning them up and see if i can delay spending a big chunk of coin.

por15 the back and fine steel wool on the chrome, still needs a ton more elbow grease but happy so far with how they are looking.

Managed to find some rocking horse .. GT boot trim. 

Went to test fit and can't see any holes for the bottom one, tops were filled in previously but doesn't look like bottom has ever been filled. 

Anyone know if they came with just one? (Found a photo with only one) bright-yellow-ford-cortina-mk3-2000cc-gt-parked-in-the-paddock-at-B06EF4.thumb.jpg.0a349845c94ed81119fe95065a4748b6.jpg
