Hi,
Some of the last update before HO !
This week end I've worked on the last thing I had to fix, I have cleaned and modify a little bit the B emblem, I also have fix the headlight, they were hacked by the previous owner to raise the car, they cutted the reflector adjusting bracket and popped it and so drilled the headlight housing
The bulbholder spring was also missing, I build a pair to be ready to go to HO
So, I'll need a pair of good reflector and spring after the show Smile
Here are the headlight after a good cleaning job !! That's a shame they have been hacked when you see how in good condition they are, they look like NOS
