    Great vision. That tail pan matches the rear fenders and skirts perfectly.
     
  5. Thanks ! but hey i have seen some more cool stuff on the Hamb :)

    have been playing with some metal again tonight
    still needs to be welded in place but it gives an idea on the overal look,
    i will get the corners curved inward

    Nice work - love the skirts too !
     
  10. Taillight Time !

    earlier i made a die stamp and made some embossings into a sheet, but putting 3 in a row created to much stress and made it wobble :(

    and since i needed to make the embossing even deeper, i decided to do it this way

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then i did some measurements
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    then cut the holes into the tailpan and trimming the die stamped pieces in place
    [​IMG]

    and a mock-up how it will look

    Good light choice I'd say. Also the recess pockets came out well. Good idea. Hopefully some asshat won't run into it while texting or being on the phone & not paying attention - a growing problem here in the States.

    nice job on the taillight setup
     
  13. Great work! (again)
    For those embossings, if you had cut the center out, staying 1/4" inside the 4 small holes the metal would have been able to flow out of the hole and keep the area around the embossings from puckering.

    Oh yeah! One of the things I liked when the '65 Chevy Impala's came out was their taillight treatment. Your embossing idea just takes it up another level. Cool beans!
     
  15. Your right might have been better. But i wanted to keep them closed, because the lamp socket will be in the middle.

    That looks really cool. Do you have to light the license plate?
     
  19. yes we do i may use some license plate bolts with these integrated led lights

    i am still thinking if i may emboss the license plate into it also :rolleyes:

    probably a goofy idea, but what about rotating lights 180* . that might keep the ramps from hitting taillights. it would let the taillights follow more closely the angle of the roll pan.
     
  25. tought abouth it but did think it would look better anyway its too late for that now :)
     
  26. ok its been awhile since my last post
    been working on the 2e fender skirt and finished the locking mechanism on them
    did also add some metal to the ends to let it flow with the contour of the fender

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and made some supports brackets for the fenders
    [​IMG]

    and finished up the rear and a provision for the license plate
    [​IMG]
     
  27. got back on track have been working on the body. adjusting the doors and lines and had to make some clearance on the lower curve following the fender
    so it would not hit the fender (as i widened the fenders by 1 inch)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    also worked on the fender radius to it follows the smaller wheel/tire nicer

    [​IMG]

    and made a latch on the rear ramp storage door
    used a latch from the 03 chevy truck donor + a door handle from a 50s chevy truck
