  1. Thanks , im gong to go for a GLX conversion , i thinks looks to much like a Taunus with square headlights,, and thats fairly common around here .. so it needs to stand out so everybody can see its a Cortina not a Taunus
  2. manage to finish one wing against the door today, the other side is nearly finished to but needs the final skim of filler and the wheels aint going on this car... it needs some wide steel wheels
  3. Thanks , not sure i agree on the square headlamps..... if i find it i want GXL Grille and headlights
  4. haha .. ive seen them on some Taunus mk1s and they did not look too bad thats why i bought them.. but i got a sett of steel rims from a mark 5 cortina im going to flip center on or have them banded Taunus mk1 on 17" http://i89.photobucket.com/albums/k205/funkyhunk/taunus/P5030026.jpg Cortina mk3 on 15" http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u89/mk3cortina/MK3%20Cortina%201973/044-1.jpg
  5. Started on the wings today, as i used lower front panel from Taunus mk1 they did not really fit well. so i did some cutting and adjusting.,. then i welded the wings to the front plate and lead filled the seams. also started on the panel gpas.. sadly not ONE gap are nice and strait on the car worst are the back doors/ rear wings but i just take on at the time.. cut , weld and lead fill
  6. Started prepping the bay etc for paint //i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff135/mr_scorpio1/Mk3%20Cortina%20estate/tina1_zps739cb799.jpg[/img][/url] Thats about where i left it a few weeks back got the front wings back from blasting yesterday so started adjusting and fitting them now
  7. think im going to stay clear of the wheels. need something more retro, also need to find me an GXL grille and backing plates for the lights... more pictures coming this afternoon.
