      • Guys, you did incredible work the cars look incredible! I can only imagine the feeling that you have while driving. It is something new and at the same time old. This car remembers me of my grandpa's car. Even the color is pretty the same. You know I'm looking now for a car to buy and I was thinking about subaru cars. I even found a site with different models and the one that I stopped was the model BRZ. But now I think that I'll change my mind and I would like to buy such an amazing car. What do you think about this?

            I have been working on several other projects! I'm promising myself to get back on it soon. If anyone is skilled at slicing a 3d model to make 2d buck sections (actually just to use as a template for forming the wire frame buck) and would like to help feel free to reach out!

              I had Dan Palatnik ( dan.palat@gmail.com ) do the 3D modeling, model slicing, and station buck modeling work for my Miura project. He's very good at this and was reasonably priced. I had all the buck stations cut from birch plywood from the CNC instructions Dan provided back to me. The station buck has been extremely helpful for my build project.

              • I am excited to see an update regarding this build as well. It's been a while since I've seen wire wheels, it's not easy to find a set nowadays. I try to check 4WheelOnline but it's not available.

                  Thanks Joel! I'm just now seeing this, but I found a guy in Russia who is helping me, I will let you know how it progresses! I am planning to cut the buck sections in MDF and then use that as a jig to hold the wire skeleton together as I bend and weld it, then move that over to the actual car and weld in place. It makes sense in my head at least. Hopefully I'll be posting some photos of it soon.

                  • So for the past year + I was busy building my 2jz swapped 240sx. I am also in the process of 2jz swapping a 280z but that will go on as I work on the 275 project.








                    As for the 275 I had been fiddling trying to break down the computer model down into sections to make the buck to no avail the last few months. I pretty much gave up. Good news is I found a Russian guy who was able to do exactly what I needed with the computer model i had already . https://www.facebook.com/RustinhoPRO/ He did an excellent job for a very reasonable price and included thorough instructions. Since I am building a wireframe buck I will do things a bit differently than the other car bucks you see on his site, but I will be printing the 2d sections on paper and then transferring to masonite to make a temporary buck while I weld the wire in place and work on areas like the shut lines. Here are a couple photos of what he did for me:















                    I will be starting the buck the week before Christmas
