Hi Matt,

Thanks. I’m very happy with the way the body has shaped up in preparation for creating those splash moulds.

1. Has the body been scanned? I don’t know about being scanned, but if you look at post #26, you’ll see that I reported that ”AP2289's body has been fitted onto a chassis to check the body accuracy to AP's set of drawings. The body has come up so close that any differences that are actually measurable are within millimetres of the drawings. Even though the 427 and 289 shapes look quite different in detail, the basics of both are identical....so AP dropped a 427 bonnet and boot onto the FIA body, and they fitted perfectly”
Also, if you go back to post #19, you can see how good the body on John Olsen’s Bruce-bodied 289 roadster looks.

2. Am I paying…? Let’s just say that we (AP and I) are both benefitting from this project

Cheers,
Glen
