07-05-2011 08:34 PM rear inner wheels wells 1
Since I'm now waiting for the tube pieces to be best so I started to mock up the rear inner wheel wells as I'll be making my own mini tubs. I have the driver side set up, now I just need to slice up a strip of metal and start fitting it in place. Fortunately for me since I'm going to flare out the quarter panels I'll need to modify the outer wheel wells too. This will allow me to correct any imperfections/ errors I might make on the inner wheels wells.

It might be a few weeks again before I get any time to work on this. I am booked this weekend, and the following will be my anniversary. Summers sure are busy...

07-05-2011 08:31 PM engine mount mock up 1
I set the engine back in and mocked up a little more accurate tube layout for the engine mounts, as well as roughed out my adaptor plates. I had bought some in a kit, but I'd like to take advantage of all the bolt holes on the block as I'm locating my engine farther back. I'll draw up a pattern in Illustrator and use it to trim out the plates to give them a little style. I have something in mind... I also bought some DOM tubing today and dropped it off at a local tube bending shop to have parts of it bent. I'll also need to purchase a tube cutting tool so I can make some clean cuts for welding.

Wow, time does fly. I'm still alive. I had a last minute trip to Hong Kong and China for work for 2 weeks (3 weekends, though), and now it's a month later. I was lucky to get 3 days this weekend to work on the car. I took it off the rotisserie and put it back on the body dolly.
