** Friday 26 November update **

So, I’m really happy with the front end so far. I hope to get it in primer tomorrow, so it will look more like a car and less of an origami/ Lego creation.

The blends around the lights need finishing as I have to take the lights out first and I couldn’t be bothered today as it’s hassle.

The revised central nose area looks better than expected considering it had a MASSIVE Audi grill which dominated the front bumper and which touched the A4 bonnet.

The sides grafted really well and although you won’t be able to really tell from the photos of how good it flows into the front and wings…we’ll, it just does.

Next the top area! Not sure if I can be arsed to do much more this year as it’s cold.

Also, I’ve bought another SC VX Stage 2 today. I’ll post details another time.

I’ve friends coming over for mulled
Wine and a walk at midday. It’s beautiful weather today!

But, I really wanted to spray some primer on the front end. It’s the only way to see imperfections and areas that need tweaking and to really see what its going to look like.

I’ve only lightly gone over the areas with 360 grit (that’s all I had) prior to spraying the rattle can primer filler.

Overall I’m really happy with the results. But, I keep getting damn pin holes in the filler. I presume from mixing it with the hardener and getting air in the mix. It’s a bloody pain in the arse. Any ideas of how to get less?

Also, I can’t remove the front lights and make good around them until I cut the bumper joint lines with the wings. It will be a separate front bumper, not a complete front clam as before. So, it will have to wait until I complete the bonnet and arches, before I can cut the bumper area off.

I’m looking forward to doing the bonnet top and getting the front end done so that I can get on with the coupe back & the rear end.

I’m not at all motivated by how well it’s going, but because I want it moved out of my garage ASAP, which is a shame,

Anyway, thanks for your kind comment.
