builders show yer stuff

Im new here and wondered if there were any other builders or shop owners that are using this board If so I'd be interested in hearing about your current projects ... one off stuff in particular I think most rodders would enjoy seeing this stuff and maybe even learn a trick or two they could apply to thier own rides... the magazines used to be good source of how to's but now its all bolt on crap... I wanna exchange with the guys you create stuff ... If ya show me yours I'll show ya mine ...

The dash buck is being fomed using hardware cloth foam duct tape and spitballs and of course resin and bondo it will ten be smoothed and carbon fiber epoxy overlayed so it looks like the headlite bucket in the next post ...this is a quick simple way to make carbon fibre parts... light and super strong

finished piece

this is the headlight buckets for the same car It will use a VW glass and reflector with a pair of toyota projector bulbs ... I built a mold for these and can repop a pair in about an hour they lay back at just the right angle to blend with the grill on the speedstar by Alloway

I did a topchop today on my second 32 sedan this year got it cut and welded nearly all ground in a day but this old guy is beat ...I got a really neat trick for laying out the cut lines using a simple sheet metal tool you can make that makes perfect joints every time no more than 1/8 inch gap to weld all way round I'll take a pic of it and post it tomorrow ,,, that jag fender sounds like fun did you do it or did ya have to farm it out ... on my to do list a 39 dodge pickup on a tube chassis sitting fat and low ... paint on a 71 Charger ... a speedstar that gets indy style suspension tons of carbon fibre and steel scuptured suff and the duece sedan plenty fer a one man shop ... long days short night but I love my job ....
