Looks like you took my advice on trimming the trunk liner at the trunk support bar.

Make sure you mount the side panels, before you cut out the door areas to stiffen the body.

No, but just do it anyway, so that you'll have a better fit on the doors, hood and grill later.

Well it's been a while since I've posted on this thread, but have with a lot of knowledge gained since the last post.

Translation: We've taken the shell off the chassis again to trim the blasted trunk bay one more time.

Additionally, we've mounted the hood cowls on each side, mounted the booster cylinder on the firewall to the car and have a better understanding of the overall picture.

As far as support, Mike S. has been nothing but Top Shelf and this needs to be acknowledged. He's a real pro and has been there when we couldn't find our heads from our tails

Lastly, we haven't started welding yet and have a non gas welder on loan that I'm not too pleased about. I'm considering bringing in someone who's much more talented than I am when it comes to welding.

That's all for now, and Thanks for reading,

Jay K.

Before you weld anything check the fit of the doors to ensure the body has not bent in the middle because you cut the door opening out.

You may have to raise the rear slightly to close a gap if it did.

Do It this way.

drill the holes for the rear bumper tubes (to the size of the actual tubes) jack the rear up or use cargo straps to pull it up until the door gap is where it should be.

Mount the rear bumper tube mounts to the frame and the bumper tubes to the mounts to hold the body in position.

I have a customer in Lake Havisue (sp?) that had his cabriolet doors professional done (by persons that shall remain nameless) and had to completely redo the entire process (by himself including welding) because the door blanks were cut out while the body was still movable.

Mike,

We did the back bumper holes and tubes already.

This past weekend we mounted the radiator to the frame.

next up is either the steering column or the door frames.

Dad knows the plan.

Jay K.

ps. I'll post up pics of the the front end either today or tomorrow.

Good afternoon Gents,

We (my father and I) have made some significant headway with our build since my last post. We've cut open the windshield opening, mounted the master cylinder, mounted the radiator and attached it to the engine.

Any issues that we encounter are usually resolved over the phone with Mike S. @ Streetbeasts.

I do believe they've turned the corner as whenever we have a Question, it's answered.

Whenever we buy an additional part from them, its usually shipped as soon as possible.

In summation, so far ... so good.

Presently, we are working on doing both the steering column and the door frames for the car. We've also realized that if one is to do some welding, then you better have a 200 Amp welder and anything else below is merely for appearances sake.

Pic below...

I'm glad to see you're getting prompt service from those bozos. However, if you weren't posting updates on your kit build on this site, (the web site they're suing for telling the truth about them), you wouldn't be getting preferential treatment from them. This is a very public site and they know when people search for Streetbeast this site and our threads about them come up right below their own business web site. The last thing they want is more of the truth to become available to potential customers so they are bending over backwards to make sure you are getting all the factory help and parts you need. Lucky you!
