Sweet so much better when I see those hand made parts actually going back on the car.....
Spent some time measuring and re-CADing the rhd dash/glovebox parts today with my buddy Rod. Not as easy I first thought, but we made some progress and thanks to Rod's CAD skills almost there. Hope to have the CAD part finished by next week. CNC shortly after.

Update time ........

If you scroll back to the previous page you would be reminded I had made the sections for the RH rear engine bay skirt. Here it is tacked in place .......



Also made up the piece for the LH side & tacked in place .......





I cut the dash out so it could be used for the CNC mock up that John is organizing. Hopefully, if all goes well, it will be the last dash I have to cut out as having pieces that fit the LH style dash will mean only the base where the column & switches are will need to be moved .........

Bit of stuffing around today ..... πŸ˜„

In the future I will be rolling & wiring the edges of all the fenders.

The fronts are easy. All you need to do is mark the shape (I re-arch the fronts so the arch is 1 1/2" longer than stock, that way bigger wheels do not hit the front of the fender).

First I mark where to cut the fronts ......



Cut the new shape, bend the lip again & then trim the "lip" to 3/8" ........



I then clamp 1/8" soft wire into the folded edge & then hammer roll it around the wire ......





Finished inside (except for the welded ends) .......



Finished outside .....



Now the front tyres will have nothing to "catch" on & plenty of room.

That will happen soon to John's car & today I was checking what size rod I will need for the rear fenders. They had been modified for drag slicks & the outer rear wheel wells are not in good shape. So some old school Trans-Am mods will be happening here.

Working on a sample to know what size rod to order. I knew it would be 3/16" (5mm) rod but made the sample just to confirm ........





The outside of this roll is 3/16" & to make the rear wheel arch roll match the front, I need the outer size.

I will be removing most of the outer rear wheel wells & rolling a curved piece of body metal so it joins the inner wheel arch & the outer quarter skin.

Like this (but a lot narrower) ......





That will leave only the quarter panel skin around the wheel arch. The tyre will be able to go straight up without rubbing. The stock flare shape will be increased a touch & only those, that know the cars, will be able to tell something is different ...... Twisted Evil

Good work. I like the tire / rim - nice.


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Not John's car, my last picture post are sample pics of cars I had built over the years. The front fenders are Flameman1 from up Cairns way & the rear wheel arch mods are an AIX race car I built in CA, back in the early 2000's (that car was 8" or 200mm wider than a stock 68 Hardtop).

12" on the back & 11" on the fronts from memory .......

Cookin with gas now. Might just be some bigger rubber waiting for you when you get back from the states, Ozbilt.

I have borrowed some pics off the web.



the above photo is 305s about 12' of rubber, I was thinking 245s, .. with the '65 chrome ornaments. I have Willwood rear discs which already add an inch or so to track width from memory.

Boof

I have 17" by 8"s Coys C67s, similar to these. I think they look great on early cars, though there are a few out there.

Yes they look great. Hybrid has them I think. Obviously the e cars do as well. It will look sweet as.

Have now repaired the front sections of the rear rails now that the car is on the rotisserie .......





I altered the rear spring front mount to be the same as a 68 & later (short bolt that does not rust in place). The early cars have a bolt that the head is showing on the inside of the rear rail, 68 & later cars, it is inside the rail & covered by a rubber plug. For ease of locating them, I used the seat mount plug hole size ......





Then got the front rail extensions in place, but not welded yet (X frame has to be fitted first) .....



Front floor section was needed for the right hand side .......



Then fitted the X frame & rail connectors to get the front rail extensions in the correct position ......











Last was fitting the K car snubber mount ......

Loved the update. I really like seeing the metal work get done. Thanks.

Agree with Boof, used to love going to Kerry's to look at the metal work underway on the cars in his workshop, one of the things I miss having moved to Queensland.
