    I seemed to be having trouble getting the license panel to blend in the first 2 just didn't flow so it had to go ......

    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

    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

    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 .

    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 .

    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

    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 .

    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?
