C-Type Replica Progress Update

Posted on 24 May 2012Dash of C-Type Replica built by Vintage Jag Works

We have the dash finished and installed now in our current C-Type Replica with all of the gauges and switches. The airbox is also on the car. The airbox will duct air in through the hood scoop on the bonnet through some ductwork into the airbox. We modified the intake runners for the Weber carburetors so that we could install some K&N filters.

We glued the inner and outer door panels together and mocked up all the body panels on the car so that we could fill and level the body work on the carbon fiber panels. Then we sprayed it in primer, leveled the primer then sprayed it in primer again. Now it has to sit for a few weeks for the bodywork to cure and shrink.

Once the bodywork has cured it will be sanded and leveled again prior to being sprayed in British racing green.
