Just to say, feeling very nervous to drive it for the first time after sitting in it and not being able to see a thing.

Will get used to it though Smile

Wow! It's is looking very nice. Good job on the build. Love the white with white interior and wheels. I know how you feel as they have terrie visibility. Not to mention all the hard time and effort to get it to this point. That's something I will struggle with as well. So much time and money involved to take it out into traffic.

HI AcC8braman, what an awesome build congratulations your car looks amazing, a real credit to you, all the years of hard work have paid off, I am also build a Countach started in 1987, can't rush these things, I suspect I have a Prova shell that I bought from a local assembler some years ago, can you or any one explain why the Prova appears to have an issue with the door upper frame hitting the A pillar as the door opens, the local builder used to notch a piece out of the front of the door to allow it to go past the a pillar did your car have this problem, and if so how have you overcome it, also can you advise a wiper assembly that I can use.
My thanks
Graeme

Hi, I haven't had this problem, but a friend is building a Prova too so will ask him.

With the doors fully open, looking from the front of the car, are the doors perpendicular to the car or go in or out?

Hi I have not attached my doors yet, I am trying to work out what the problem is before drilling holes for the hinges etc, I know on both sides the panel that the hinges mount to on the body is on a angle towards the door opening with a difference of 10-12mm from outside to inside, the supplier manual suggests adding bog until the door is vertical but on his finished cars he still has to notch it out to clear the A pillar, on the finished cars I have seen from the supplier they appear to be vertical.
The problem is he stopped production some 10 years ago so not really around to ask how to solve the problem, and I don't think he could come up with a solution either. If needed I would rather cut out the section that the hinge sits on and level it up. I wonder if this was the way the Prova kits were so if you can ask your friend that would be great.
Any thoughts on what wiper I can use.
regards

Dc supercars can help you with the wiper. They also might be able to help re the doors

Hi:

Nice job on the detail level of the Countach.

How did you come up with the Air Intake?
Any sketches or plans you could share?

Thanks guys Smile

Can't drive it yet as not through IVA yet and then reg.

The air intake was made by dc supercars so no plans I'm afraid.

Need to get a replacement alternator and temp sensor then good to go Smile

hello,

i recently bought a very nice 25th anniversary replica and i am trying to find some help on finishing the interior; especially the headliner, ceiling, and side panels from bottom of windshield to headliner. i am wondering if you know of a person that builds the interiors or if there is a place that can make me the parts. i have seen too many hacked together countach kits with bad home made looking interiors. this kit was done very well in every aspect and looks brand new on the outside. i want the interior to live up to the exterior. please let me know if you can help. thank you for your time.

-david
