09-02-2009 07:49 PM Laying out the front end.....part 2
I ran a piece of 2" tape right along the rasied center part of the hood as a cut line.I ran 2 more lines for reference marks.I traced the tape with a sharpie and pulled up the tape leaving the lines.
I cut the entire length of the hood along the inside line,then pulle the hood inward until the outer most line touched the cut line.

Even since I started this build,I was planning on narrowing the front sheet metal.I though it looks a bit bulky without the fenders,and mounting head light adds to the problem.Also,I think the hood is too long,so I planned to shorten it too.I decided to cut the rounded lead edge off,and shorten it behind that point.

I decided the best way to attach the hinges to the doors was to take them to work and use the spot welder we use to rebuild wrecked cars with.I think it worked very well.I brought themback home and bolted them in,until I can get a chance to finish them.

With eveything welded in,I made the basic doors,and mocked up the hinge locations.I will need to come back later and make the door inner supports,lock assemblies,and weather seal rails.

Got working on the bed floor today.Had already cut out the main floor panel,trimmed it to fit and for the compartments,then welded it in.
