The glazing formers shown above were made from pearwood too. These have had only handwork with 320 grade wet and dry apart from the single cutline at the B post point. The part on the extreme left is the second of the two tail lamp lenses. The final shaping and detailing takes place before the piece is cut off and trimmed. My next step is to experiment with clear casting resins adding a touch of red pigment. This particular process is very wasteful of materials as the smallest amount of resin I can mix accurately is 25ml. Of this i'll probably use 0.001% and throw the rest away.
The shot above shows just how the GT is now looking. Sometimes when I look at it and see something that just isn't right, I can't quite work out why or where. With everything in place around the front and looking very balanced, from one or two angles it still didn't do it for me. I found it eventually and added 1 mm to the top of the screen extending the headrail forward. The difference is quite amazing.
