Here is the last of the tailshaft tunnel and next section of floor
I have also fitted and welded the pipe frame in the car .This is all out of sight.
Got the jigsaw and router out again and made a fuel block off
I like that roll cage idea.
Still looking amazing, well done!
Rear window panel and third brake light welded in
you had me until 3rd brake lite.....
Yeah a little custom bracket holding an old light housing
inside the window frame seems much cleaner.
Been busy doing other stuff too,i now have the fastest loo roll holder in the district
Good stuff MercuryMitch. Love the finish on exh. bracketry & interior concept is something else- really cool. I'm in for what's been suggested on the tailight, and LED would probably get it done. Man this car would look good as a custom.
Sorry folks ,this thread is more about learning for me and others.I realise it is not a belly button car,i am building it my way and to suit all our rules and regulations over here.You folks in the USA don't appear to have any rules at all(very lucky)
Finally got the other bonnet side repaired,had to remove 3 bars and straighten them and adjust some of the grill bars to even them up.
on page one when you said you had a wheel and were going to cut all the rusty parts off and replace. I was thinking, you mean throw the entire thing in the trash. amazing work to bring that back to life.
OMG !!!THAT is metal shaping !!
Great metal work . Best I've seen in years !
Very inspiring. Thanks for all your posts!
Finally getting a bit more done .Made my first panel from ally and fitted it to the frame,gaps came up nice and turned out ok.
I'll say it again.......beautiful work!
Hi Mitch, that boot lid looks like it could be OEM I hope you're keeping on top of the health issues mate
I have these spare bits lying around,but what to do with them
Met this old guy the other week
How about a lamp
Pretty cool metal art Mitch. Is that your shop or his? Are you going to give us the drum on how you met Gene?
Unbelievable build Mitch, you have a great eye for sheetmetal fab, you could be running classes on the how to's of sheetmetal work. Lee
I met Gene at a metal working course at Castlemaine last month,i think I taught him a couple of things,he taught me a lot more
This is starting to look like my mother in law [and I don't mean beautiful ]I was thinking more BIG across the ass
your mother in law is sexy as hell mitch
