09-02-2011 06:48 PM BODY SUPPORT OUTRIGGERS
I had to fab a couple of tubes to come off the rad support tubes as a rectanglur tube wouldn't work. It comes off of the rad upright post at 45 degrees and the upright is leaning back at 75 degrees.

Added a quarter inch thick body mount plate and a couple of gussets.


And got them all welded and polished up.

09-02-2011 06:43 PM RAD SUPPORT TUBES
I made up two rad support posts from 2'' square tube.

I added some pieces to ''roll'' into the tubes.

I then got the tubes tacked in place.

08-30-2011 06:50 PM RADIATOR MOCKUP
I cut off the front frame horns and cut a fish mouth in them to get clearance for the lower rad hose.

I also tacked in a couple of 2'' square upright tubes for the mock up.

08-21-2011 06:16 PM DECK LID HIT WITH EPOXY

I used some black SPI epoxy primer on the trunk lid. This stuff has a nice shine for a primer.

Came out not too bad. Some high build primer and a skim of fill should take care of it.

08-13-2011 08:43 PM TWO HALVES BACK TOGETHER
I assembled the two halves after hitting them with epoxy primer on the inboard side of each.

I welded up about six of the spot welds and tried it on the car.

The fit seems OK thus far.
