Lots of pics to update. I'll let them talk:D

Loads of work gone into making the front splitter work with the wide arches.

Pretty happy with how it's worked out!
Also cut two big holes in my bonnet!

Over the moon with them! But not content with two holes we then started making more:D

Got to do the other side now :lol:

More soon:)

Bit more progress. Lots of filling and sanding going on at the moment. Hard work but quite rewarding.

Also been trial fitting the mesh over the stupid holes in the scuttle.

Love this thread,

The mesh is something I need to do, is yours metal or plastic ?

Love the funky orange paint on the bits only the MOT man will see - nice attention to detail - I tend to do that as well hence my cars have lurid yellows and sky blue painted bits underneath which contrast nicely with the black (also us s up odds and sods of leftover paint :lol: )

It seems this thread hasn't been active for a while, but I've just found it and after seeing that splitter I now really want one. Any information and what its from and where to get one?

Richards tale is now largely being continued on the "Official TDC " Facebook page.

Could someone post a link to the specific facebook page for Richards build for those of us who find Facebook frighteningly confusing?

Thanks,
Mark

I'm afraid i'm a bit of philistine where computers are concerned and don't do links!

But the page is called "The Official Triumph Dolomite Club Group"

Hi Mark, haven't seen you on here for quite a while.

I don't do Facebook so can't help either.

With the way facebook works, there isn’t a particular thread you can access, Richard just posts at random as he thinks about it within the Club group. Searching on his name within the group might find all his posts, but there’d be random stuff amongst the results. Unfortunately, facebook were early in recognising the need for easy loading of photos, and that has taken traffic away from the forum, even though adding photos here is now as easy.

Thanks gents,

I'll try and put my fears to one side and dive into facebook.

Mart, I have been away from the Dolly world for a bit but am now back working on my Sprint, hopefully will have it running and competing again soon.

Cheers
Mark
