    I notice that you have a different Reg Number, I assume Kevin kept the ODX 115 number when he sold the car to Keith. I must update the database

    Yes it has the original plate from the doner car back on it. ODX 115 went on it for few years then came back off. It has had another owner in between Kevin and Keith. It was in Essex when me and Keith went to get it in 2012.

    As far as I know Sam made 18 shells, if that is correct then this is the last but one.

    Well after a lot of digging I found the spoiler and the back louvre. Although the louvre has the middle cut out.

    I wonder WHY? As I remember it, Kevin had an unusually rigid and straight set of louvres that other owners envied! at least it looks like you have th parts to glass back in!
    It's a 50 year old car and everything works, just not always at the same time.......and it's probably about to get jealous!

    Couldn't see out the back!? I would have just taken them off. Yes it seem to have corrugated strip glassed to the underside. I'm going to use some galv strapping to re-attach to try keep the ridgity when I repair it.

    Louvers starting to take shape again. A lot of filling to do as bits missing. 20160603_160157.jpg

    Good to see your not sitting on your hands. I find the best surface filler to be topcoat. Basically gel coat with about 2% wax added to ensure it all goes hard & doesn't leave the surface tacky. If you need to layer it then wipe with acetone first to remove the thin layer of wax first to ensure a good bond. Then just sand as normal. The only draw back is that it is thin & doesn't do vertical surfaces of any depth well.
