      • 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

                    • I have the hood and left side bucks made. Remember I am only using these as a jig to hold the wire while I weld it all together, then I will remove the wire frame structure and weld/bolt it on to the car. Bending the wire is turning out to be a very tedious process but it's great to see it coming along. So far I have just done about 1/4 of the left side, with the wheel arch being very difficult to bend in 3d space and get a nice smooth gradual curve. After I finish the wire form for the left side I will deconstruct the buck and flip the sections to create the right side, then repeat the process for the right side.



































                      I am going to have to fudge the trunk area since I was working from a coupe 3d model and I'm making a spyder but I will worry about that when the sections I am making are in place on the car. It seems like there is some variation in how each nart spyder was created and how "cut cars" had the trunk and rear arches fabricated as well so I don't think there's a perfect way to do it or perfect example. Pictures will be my main reference there.

                      • Very nice work!

                        Is that a Porsche 928 I spy in the background?

                          Yes, it's full risky business spec!

                          • Left side done

                            • The hood and opposite side wire form are now done. I ended up shortening the sides approximately 2" for the wheelbase to match the body as well as massaging the rear quarters to look closer to photos. Visually it looks correct after a quick photoshop job too. I have to just assume the 3d model I have been working with was a tad out of scale. Unfortunately the 3d printed parts are quite fragile and I need to reinforce the insides before I crack any more pieces off... After that I can begin hard mounting everything on the chassis. The plan is to have it all be bolt on for ease of removal as needed for working on specific sections.

                              • I put a layer of fiberglass mat on the backside of all my 3D printed body panels
