Cheers for that ray but I think we are all good on those panels, spent a bit more time on her today and after removing all the filler and warming the panels up it came good. I should of worn ear plugs though ..... Still got ringing in my ears ...
If you search my thread, you will see how I made them, new OEM are too damn expensive.

You can make any bushings on the car using liquid urethane.Check my post on motor mounts.I am about to make some other bushings this weekend. Prothane sells the stuff. It is easy and better than rubber.Plus it is only 27 bucks a quart Lee

I may still have the mould I made. If so I will send you the dimensions. I will look for it. Order your head gaskets fro Cometic. I has them make a Jalpa set twice and they have the dies. Cheap and better than stock.Just make sure to seal around the water jacket holes. Make sure to check the exhaust valves as they are prone to break. I found a substitute spring that works great. Also I have plenty of good stock springs and valves if you need any.Also if you use the stainless head studs for dodge cummins turbo diesel from ARP they work great and can be torqued to 85 Plus foot lbs. You need 2 sets of 10. Italian car parts has the complete gasket set but a little pricey. Just order without head gaskets. Check all my posts on the heads.

Fantastic post. These in my opinion are some of the best posts. It is always great to see the work that people are putting into preserving things! Keep up the great work!

RE the blue Jalpa

This car seems to be one of the cars owned by Roy Jackson-Moore. he had three Jalpas over time. I have one of the other cars here in NZ.

This thread jumped 2.5 years or so. Hopefully the car is done now, perhaps someone can contact the shop and see how it turned out, maybe get pictures posted, overall costs, etc?
