Hi all,

Another small update, around 45 mins work again over lunch.

This is my to do list for work. Think it's about time I added:

Ford GT40 '69 w.i.p. 14/01

Another 45mins work today. Finally managed to get the light holes cut out after much fiddling.

I've got a tri though on the bumper (shown in red) that I just can't figure out how to get rid of any ideas?

Ford GT40 '69 w.i.p. 11/01

So following the advice I have started the mesh again. About 1hrs work today.

I'm much happier with the results so far.

I'm now getting to putting the lights in, and having issues again.

Any tips on how to best fit the light holes in would be much appreciated.

Ford GT40 '69 w.i.p. 10/01

Drum roll please...

I've finally plucked up the courage to tackle this, it's my first real attempt at a car, and already I'm not liking it! I'm having real issue getting the light holes modeled.

I've spent about 45mins work today over lunch. I think this is going to be a long project, and a huge learning curve.

I've posted some of my early wires, with my mesh errors highlighted. I'd really appreciate some help with my mesh and pointing out/painting over where my mesh is wrong and how to fix it please.

I'm determined to see this project through to the end!
