07-13-2008 07:11 PM Fender rough trim done
More work on the fenders...I decided to bob them off to a point front and back. I still have to establish a uniform radius in the gap area between the tire and fender lip and then take them off and roll the bead around the edge. Here's a few more shots.

My goal is to have them done by next weekend. From there I will move to fit and latch the rumble lid. Then I will fit and weld in the rear valance panel.

07-07-2008 06:55 PM Getting ready to trim fenders to shape
Here's todays pictures... for now this looks like the pattern I will use to trim the wheel opening and bob off the front and back. Everything below the pattern front bottom and rear bottom will be trimmed off. I'm thinking about bringing the front to a point, or a shape like a devils tail. But that may be a little to much like an orange county chopper theme bike...don't know for sure yet.

Need to take a break for a day of so.

Thanks to all for the feedback.

07-04-2008 08:15 AM Rabbit out of a hat fender project
Just a follow-up on the 30U. I started making the rear fenders back in the spring then got sick in May-June, so haven't done anything for awhile. Finally getting back to normal health, so I started back on the project last week. I am way over my head on the fenders. I have the primary pieces flanges so to speak made and bolted on the car, but now I have to section the extensions and develop a compound curve, etc... What a mess. So far I've done all the metal shaping with a hammer and dolly.

Here are a few more pictures.

Happy 4th to all!

05-18-2008 05:16 PM more fender work
I'm finally getting over my illergic reaction from posion ivy, so I got to work a bit today. The trailer fenders are going to work out. The other side should be much easier now that I have one under my belt. Still have alot to adjust and will add a section to cover the tire later.

05-11-2008 06:03 PM Hockey Puck Body Mounts
One of the guys on the forum mentioned using hockey pucks for body mounts. This combination worked out perfect. Still have to grind and shape the plates.

Go figure they weren't made in the States.
