    • Hi everyone

      I have an update , I jumped back on the front of the car , been busy with everything really .

      So I built a system for measuring the front fenders , so I have been tuning up the fenders to get them equal in height , width and inside angle .

      Sorry no pic's ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,I resized them as I did for the last post and they still won't go ..................

      • Your fiberglassing skills are awesome there Falcata and the car will be a stunner when it's complete. I'm not entirely sure I understand the rear window treatment though. Is there going to be any functional view rearward through those louvers or are they purely a styling thing?

        Comment


        • Thanks for the comments Bloozberry there will be no rear window , it will be replaced with a rear view camera in the mirror , I couldn't get a small window to work with the factory rear strut brace , there was no way to get the water off the back .
          I am going to resize the pics again and try to post them again .

            I put tape down where ever I glued the structure down so it would break away , seemed to work out ok .

                  made a rise at the back of the hood to hide the wipers , They take away from the car to me anyway . this will also add some strength

                  • and some work on the hood latches

                    I made provisions for these a long time ago , now just test fitting them into the lower half of the hood , so when it gets molded i will know where to cut the holes .
                    this other hole is where there was a bump in the original hood for strength , that i don't need so I am deleting them

                    • I bought a 3D printer to make some parts for the car , like emblems and crest's , door opening parts etc.
                      Kudos to Don for helping me with set up and lending me his old laptop , this way I could get frustrated right away with CAD until my new PC arrived .

                      Here is the first emblem test , still needs tweaking , but it all learning new stuff , you can print in chrome , black chrome or a bazillion different colors , too cool .

                      • now onto the back of the car
                        Started body working the batman humps in , made a couple small changes ( Don said no change orders allowed ) it's just going to make it better and easier .

                        unfortunately it wouldn't let me load some of the pics , I guess my new phone camera is too many pixels , i did resize them all .......but still not working .

                        the last one is shooting a line to see where the top of the quarter panel and the rear deck intersect .
                        So I have to shave some of that edge down .

                            Hey Shem
                            Thanks for the kind words about the shop and build .
                            the interior will remain stock apart from the already upgraded stereo .
                            seems everyone likes it so far,.
                            Cheers Phil

                            • hi Everyone sorry for the late updates , just been so tired lately
                              I have still been working on the car everyday .....
                              Trying to get the rear quarters filled in , in order to do that I need to finish the rear panels so I can find out where the corner end .

                              replaced the blue foam with the polyurethane foam
