03-16-2014 02:38 AM New door hinge
Well at first I did not plan to use electric windows but now I have them which means I needed to change the door hinge location so I could get a nice size panel gap between the door and the wing.

Well the Jaguar doors turn up so I took off the door skin to see what was involved in making up a frame which would locate the runners, glass, and motor mechanism and also to see how it would fit to my door beams. The frame is made of 16x16x1.5mm box. I had to cut off the top brackets on the runners and make some new ones because I wanted the top box to also act as the bump stop for the window mechanism (Also has a small cam for fine adjustment). The next stage will be to fit it to the door beams.

I wanted to move the front jig section and relocate it to the back of the jig. Before I could do this I needed to brace the front and to finish off the front wire arch to the spoiler.

08-29-2013 04:29 PM Headlight Wirer Surround
Now I have the both headlight casings finished and in position I then needed to make up the wirer headlight surrounds for the buck. The former will be used to form the wire to shape of the headlight case and also to position the wire surround in the buck. So I cut a wire former out of 10mm plate and then bolted it to a face plate so that I could heat the wire up to temperature and wrap it around the former. The next stage was to set up the jig cross members at the required angle so that I could use a piece of 30x30x3 box section to bolt the former to and then hang the box from the jig cross members, for the other side it was just a case flipping the former and box over and re-bolting them together for the opposite hand.
