Yeah that looks pretty sick brother. Nice attention to detail with that stance. I thought in the end that stretched front would look weird, but it doesn't. Looks killer. Twisted Evil

Nice to be able to see what was going on in your head all this time. Wink Keep it up and you'll be in all the mags for sure!


Agreed. It's looking good too. Definitely nice attention to detail, and that detail work will show in the end. Nice. Cool

Love what you are doing here. I have fantasized about doing something similar to my 68.

Keep up the great work!

back on it this week,
finally got the steering column in the right place so this meant i could start to get the dash fitted. had to cut the dash in half to get the clocks central and then add a 50mm strip to make it look right. i have also moved the dash out 100mm as well so that needed a strip making and welding in, overall it looks pretty good but the dash cover pad is going to need a fair bit of modding to make it look right.

today i have been on with mounting the rear bumper. i have put new panels where the bumper used to mount so i have made up some brackets that are welded to the chassis. in order to fit the bumper to the new brackets i moved the brackets on the bumper in 75mm and welded them in and with a bit of trimming the bumper now fits nice and close to the body, i still have to cut the ends off for a nice clean look.

The dash setup kinda reminds me of a bay window set up with the metal strip up against the windshield. Maybe you could add bay window vents to the strip?

Your fab skills do not disappoint but amaze. Congrats on getting your dash together - nicely done sir! Maybe a nice pad on the strip would cover the extended dash kinda overlap the edge of the dashpad up front. Looks great though.Cool

The curve is to match the curvature of the earth...

What’s the difference between the two? One is a skilled craftsmen with a solid thought out plan, the other likes his cars to resemble fruit.
