You’ll note the fenders have been on and off a couple times during the build, we find it safer to finish the engine bay with them off, and in this case, the lower windshield trim was easier to install without the fenders in place. We also wetsanded them and buffed them off the car for easier access.
Here, John, Jeff, and Caleb taped up the edges of all the sheetmetal and reinstalled the fenders and hood. Tape keeps things from getting scratched during reassembly.
You’ll note some of the exterior window trim has been installed, as well as the door glass.
More FBS tape keeps the edges safe from the buffer, and John works the polisher all around the car.
The multi-piece 7-Liter grille goes back in, with new lenses, seals, and hardware.
