  • Maserati A6 GCS Body Buck

    Hi Guys. Here is something that I thought some guys may find interesting.
    On this forum I am busy building a replica of the Ferrari 250 Testarossa. I designed the body and made the body buck and have almost finished the body. Well from that thread I have been contacted by a few guys asking if I could build a body buck for their "dream car" and then they can build the body off it. I have got the go ahead and been paid (important) to make this Maserati buck and the customer has got Jose' to build the body off the body buck in Aluminium. Jose' you will know also from this forum, he is building the Zonda R.
    It will take a while for me to do the buck as it is something I can only work on during the evenings and at home on the weekends.
    The customer is also from my city same with Jose' so I will be assembling and finishing the buck if it was for someone in a different city or country I would preassemble it and then flat pack it for shipping.
    This is what the original car looks like and worth a fortune!

    Here is an image of the 3D drawing of the car that I finished and using for designing the buck. From this image I have given the customer the critical dimensions. He is at the moment having a chassis made.

        Some pictures of the buck designs. It will have many parts so each part will be numbered when they are machined and it is all designed to clip together so no tape measure will be needed to assemble only a nail gun and glue. Hopefully

          Just curious. How do you get on for windscreens with such projects?

            Hi Peter. There is a small business locally here that has made one off windscreens that I have seen before. The bloke made a rear window for a friends Bitter sports car which was quite a feat. They made a steel framework in the exact shape of the screen. Then lay the flat sheet of glass on top of the steel former in the furnace. Then the glass takes the shape of the former due to gravity. I did not see it happening myself but was told by the guy that had the screen made.

              Yesterday I cut the first sheet of parts. I think it will take about 10 sheets.

                This project has crawled along slowly this week. Mainly because the CNC router is flat out with the work its meant to be busy on and no time to squeeze my "private" job on as my operator calls it. But I have managed to cut a few more boards up.
                Here is a rib that fits just behind the seats position.

                The small parts I have taken home so far as they fit in my car.
                The big parts I am collecting at work and will bring home to build when they are all cut.
                Here are some of the small parts.

                    Still cutting parts. Slowly squeezing the boards in between my normal work.

                      This evening when I got home from work I could'nt waith to start assembling my giant jigsaw puzzle. Spent about 45 minutes glueing some bits together.
                      So far so good, fitting perfectly together.

                        Here is a photo showing a little more progress. Hopefully I can make some serious headway with the buck by the end of the weekend.

                          Just curious. How did you make the buck sections and What cad program did you use? if you don't mind sharing for the people who want to learn more about making bucks.

                          thanks

                            Really top notch! I'm not sure which I'll like more in the end, this or your TR!

                              I draw the car and design the buck in Rhino 3Dand then make the tool paths that the machine uses in Artcam.
