    Thanks Steve. The pics don't show all the minor imperfections that still need attention, but I'm very encouraged by the results so far. And it looks good in RED!

    More Body Mods

     



    I'm still short on cabbage for parts. I don't want to loose the momentum I've build up in the last month, so I'll keep working on the little body mods that don't cost much in materials.

    The lower round vents on the bonnet aren't deep enough for my taste, so I spent a little time this last weekend extending them.

    The process was pretty straight forward. I taped an empty plastic potato salad bucket inside the vent to form a mold. I wrapped cloth fiberglass strips around until I got the thickness I wanted.

    I'll trim them at the back and shape / blend the front openings later.

    the dash and console look to be professionally done. thats how all my finished projects look in my head at the beginning, but always seem to lose something in the translation from head to hands. nice work tho.

    Nice day, and since I only worked 'till noon, I did a little filling and sanding. A little light weight filler then I'll trim the back to length.

    I was able to spend a good chunk of money today on parts from Summit Racing. Several are on back order, so I'll continue working on the small body mods while I'm waiting.


    Continued to round out the lower vents. They're not quite finished yet, but they're close enough to the look I'm aiming for, to get a little primer.


    I'm going to extend the "sugar scoops" 1 1/2 to 2 inches under the hood in the same way. I like the 3D look the extra depth adds.

    WOW!!! Summit Racing is serious about getting orders out quickly. I put the order in at 2:30 yesterday afternoon, and everything that was in stock arrived by 12:00 noon today. And that was using UPS regular ground delivery!

    I guess when racing is actually part of the business' name, you gotta be fast.

    I can't stop staring at my shiny engine... it just barely fits under the hood.

    You're quite the fabricator. That's some very nice work.

    Summit has always been next day for me, as long as I get my order in before 3 p.m. I usually get my parts the following morning, I guess part of it is where we live, but it also has to do with how fast Summit processes orders. They are an outstanding company as far as I'm concerned. If you ever get a chance to run up to the Summit store in Reno area, it's worth the drive. It's funny how small the store front is, compared to the building itself. It's huge! I think all of our orders usually ship from there. If they don't have it, then it takes a bit longer to get them!
