Plan B on the hood.
Unhappy with the 1st hood fitting and design we decided to modify to the design as shown.
Extra rigidity [as shown in it`s 1st phase] to the inner hood helped greatly in eliminating flex when lifting and lowering.

BMW 3series boot hinges were used for the boot lid.
An 1 3/4" tube cage is to be intergrated into the body for added protection and body rigidity. The tubes had to be bent, then held into place in the shell before welding could be done [not an easy task]. The plan is to have a complete body/cage + all ancillaries bonded to the body so as to make the whole shell completely removable from the space frame chassis

Willys hoods have seen one or two methods of opening other than standard but I have never seen the option I decided to go with [as can be seen].
First the hood was bonded to the body then the seam between wing body line was cut from the grill to the bulkhead. The whole thing then hinged from the front using Renault Laguna boot hinges. These are ideal as they lift the hood up and away from the body allowing loads of clearance for when the grill is finally attached to the hood.
The doors required additional fibreglass to their surrounds to improve the poor fit.

Rear tubs were then constructed in reverse so as to leave the smooth side of the glass inside the wheel tubs. With the shell turned upside down you can see the 1st stage of the floors construction, along with the rear tubs before fibreglassing.

The floor was then sealed ready for fibreglassing. Inner wings were to be installed so wooden bucks were again made using the same materials.
