Nice job farmer.
Looking amazing old friend!
Looking great Eric
The end is near.
Great news that is. Now we are all standing by for the big reveal.
Waiting with baited breath Eric
Here are some more parts nearly ready for paint.
The front fenders are now further strengthened. (they were just too weak/flexible in my opinion). A metal rod is bent following the contour of the wheel opening, including the lower horizontal part, and then filled with body kit. This not only makes it stiffer, it also prevents water from sitting there.
Just been catching up on the last few pages.....great work as always. The end is near now Eric! When is the car getting painted?
Thank you hemi v8! I'm still optimistic that the body will be painted this year, even though 2016 is getting closer by the day!
Nice job on strengthening the front fenders.
This cars certainly not going to be weak, it'll handle the power from the Hemi nicely.
So buddy, there'll be no excuses for not posting a vid of your first burn out.
Ha, I'm joking of course, I'm sure yourll drive it in a totally responsible manner.
The left front fender has now been covered with body shoot (protective coating) on the inside, followed by a coat of black paint. Mounting position is accurate now.
Looking good Eric!
Question, what color will the center of the firewall be painted?
Thank you David. The firewall will also be black. Right now we're fitting the front fenders in order to do the final fitment/adjustment for the hood and grill. Then everything will be dismantled for the last time and get painted. So realistically, just another few weeks and it will be ready for paint!
very nice work, Eric!
step by step it's coming!
Thank you Carsten! Slowly but surely.........
Now you are just being hopeful on the time frame given their history. But never mind it happens to all of us.
Looking great Eric
Getting there for sure! Looks nice Eric!
Great work farmer12!
Thank you gentlemen! I hope to have a further update after christmas.
Hi Eric.Looking good.Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours from me and mine.
Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
I'm trying to find your alternator and front accessories pictures if there are any, been following for years but I can't remember if you have ever posted pics of them yet
Thank you Leo! Have a great 2016!
Here you go BA! This is the bracket I made, the hole is for the radiator hose. The bracket has changed only slightly since then. A belt tensioner still needs to be fitted on it as well. Hope this helps!
Thanks Eric, now I remember that awesome alternator bracket. Man it's nice and inspiring.
I guess air condonditioning is not a big issue in the Netherlands? You are running power steering though I assume, I seem to remember seeing a power steering rack
Hope you have a great New Years and will be cruising this baby soon(finally)
travel safe into 2016, hope we'll meet again next year for fun and drinkin' purposes!
Looking good - you have been teasing us over the paint for quite a while ...
Hope it gets done soon - looking forward to seeing the fruits of your fantastic work.
