  1. that's a nice neat frame....great to see the progress.


  2. The windshield frame looks bitchin' and so doesn't that bead roller! Sure beats the heck out of my small Woodward Fab unit.

    I got a question, what did you guys use to roll the curve in the piece of sheet steel?

    Hey 19523b23
    For rolling the sheet metal. My friend works in a sheet metal shop and they have a set of 6 foot power rolls that we put the sheet in and rolled the curves in it.

    Love the thinking going on here, I too say why take a short cut when you can take the long way around a mountain. Great job man.

    Got started on the floor pan this weekend. Ive decided to do it 3 separate pieces. I made a template and got to cutting it out and this is what I came up with. IMG_20140809_161132.jpg Once it was cut I rolled some beads in it and fit it in the car. My new Bead roller worked Great! IMG_20140809_185333.jpg It was a Nice day so I was able to roll it out for a pic. First time seeing it out of the shop/hoist. Not 100percent in love with the stance but its just mocked up so there's room to tweak it a bit. I think the it would help if it was all one color too. IMG_20141115_151310.jpg

    The roof line looks incredible! As for overall stance is concerned what part is bothering you? Is it the front top of the hood to tire relationship that's buggin you? Not that I would want to be the one doing the work and making it look right, but have you thought of giving the grill a little lean back to go with the aggressive lakes nature of the roof? Just an idea, I'm not sure that's it though.
    I think you've done an awesome job of making something that will stand out in the right way, I love it, I bet I'm not alone on that.

  10. Looking good man !!!!
    Those first 50 foot glimpses after all the work is an awesome feeling isn't it?
    I'm sure that you'll get the tweaks just where you want based on your previous work

    I like the grill angle... In fact the profile is killer. The fit of the rear tires in the wheel well is awesome.
  16. It's got some attitude!

    The grill is what I was thinking. Maybe bring the bottom out an inch or two to be more similar to the windshield lean.

    I don't think I'd drop the front suspension any, you'll never see out the windshield, lol.

    Thanks a lot everyone! For the people commenting on the grill needing to come out a bit at the bottom your write it does. I just kinda set everything on it for a picture but the grill was way out to lunch at the bottom and didn't notice until I looked at the pics. I still say it needs to come down some more in the front .

  25. Pics can be deceiving and that's all we have.
    But based off of this one I agree with you Brad. Nose needs to come down but The cowl to hood gap doesn't seem to agree. Most 33/34s in pics have a little nose high look.

    Mock ups are just that.
    Can kinda see how the hood over laps the grill increasingly towards the bottom.

    Thanks Everyone for the compliments on the car.

    Thanks Trevor

    The bead roller works well I like it. Has great foot pedal feel and response so far its been a good machine. Your car is looking Good Man.

    This weekend I cut out the other 2 sections of floor to fit the car. The middle panel was basic and I rolled a few beads in it. IMG_20140809_212841.jpg

    After that I mocked in the front floor panel in and came to the realization I'm going to need a tranny tunnel. So I got going on that. Basically I beat a piece of sheet metal around a torque tube with a plastic hammer. then I bent a flange the opposite way so it can be spotted to the floor. For that I beat it with my plastic hammer over the front edge of my car trailer. Pretty barbaric but good enough for a 4dr sedan. Then I made a little transition piece for it to run into the shifter cover. IMG_20140920_134906.jpg IMG_20140920_141255.jpg IMG_20140920_175648nopm.jpg
