    I love the fastback ... thats going to upset some purists but I am liking what you are doing to it.

    I presume its got a new chassis to make its stance as good as that ?

    the fast back has awesome shape to it, looks aggressive just sitting there, look forward to seeing more

    not been able to do much to the fastback but the cortina has been under going loads of changes. over the next couple of weeks swapping to the billet carb body which i am hoping will make it drive a bit better . ordered a new fibre glass bonnet skin as the old bonnet decided to fly off at about 50mph and wreck it, even though it 3 steps back and 1 step forward i do believe it gets better to drive every time so cant wait to get the set of mods in place.

    i have ordered a new fuel pump which will flow up to 12 psi and a fuel regulator with boost reference which should give a more reliable fuel delivery and make it a bit more bullet proof.
    in the next couple of weeks the fastback is being dug out the corner to see if i can finally get it on the goName:  IMG_20211017_154243.jpg

    finally dug the fast back out, started ordering a few parts. first job to finish up the rear body mounts then the body can come back of to finish the welding and sanding before the body goes back so all the body panels can be mounted and gapped.

    cheers ,
    little bit done tonight,
    i knew they were going to be a bit tricky to make because of where the rear body mounts had to sit on the frame but with a few cardboard templates and some 4mm steel plate bingo done.

    can now get them tacked on the chassis then take the body of and fully weld and add a top gusset for a little extra strength.

    cheers terry.
    busy day today, got the new starter motor and had to notch the inner frame to fit . tweaked the fuel pipes and i think that will work. other thing to do was to weld in some prop shaft loops to retain the prop if things did go pete tong.

    also had these made at work, they are strengthening plates that will be welded underneath the floor pans to add support where the body mounts mount.
