I too have been waiting for an update.  It's looking great.  I think this will probably be the finest restored Elite ever once it's done.  Keep up the great work and looking forward to more updates.

Door and fender fit very well, and body lines are looking good. I add body filler between door and fender area. I think to Sand hole side at same time. Yep, I need to saw doors out of the filler when sanding work is done LOL

...But I hope straight body lines and I can't resist myself to do this trick Tongue

Clap be careful it can chip off on the edges i like to build the edges up with weld and shape the edges in metal then skim the filler for the flat sides, but that's just me

Door Edges are not problem at this time. Actually I don't need add any new material to door edges. I try to cut doors out very carefully and using hand tool. I hope that don't make any extra harm for the doors.

But I don't like is when doors look like huge bubble. It's happens very easy for me, if I sand parts separately. Maybe this happens because I'm not very good with sanding. Embarrassed

I getting tired with black color. I have own two black car since I have start this project. I have been start to hate black car, if it's mine Sleepy There is too much job to keep it clean. So, I start to think color again. Latest version and idea is Mustang Pebble Gray 1968. That could be easy color for lazy man.

Nice!
The above post should be read in a "Grumpy Old Man" voice.
