06-05-2013 02:10 PM Headlight lens
The buck is made of MDF with a wood filler top coat to give a smooth finish (aluminium epoxy resin would have been better). I used 2mm thick acrylic sheet heated to about 185 degrees for 50 seconds before applying the vacuum and then raising the buck into the heated acrylic sheet. Finish is very good just a couple of imperfections which will be sorted out before the final lenses are made which will be 3mm thick.

I needed to mount the headlights in position before I could have a go at making the lens covers so I made a bracket out of sheet which would hold both lights but would also bolt in and out for quick removal.

I decided to work on the front spoiler/front wing edge so I could then build and locate the head light cluster, since I have had no luck with choosing a head lights from any of the car manufactures. I needed to brace the grill surrounded so I bolt a piece of angle to the roll bar brackets and braced to the grill surround to the angle. This allowed me to move the jig cross member to support the lower spoiler wirer.

Decided the front arches were too wide so they have been moved to the rear and new smaller arches have been made for the front to allow more room between the arch and the bonnet. With the headlights on order and the front and rear arches in position I decided to mock up the lower cover panel to see what it would look like.

Well thatís what the bonnet and grill surround is going to look like! Next are the wings incorporating the front headlights.
