Holy crap is that well detailed, my favorite thing on a car, detail, shows passion, I dig it.

I have been side railed a bit on my Gran Sport with a project for my wife. I went over to her mom's house to do some work getting a room ready to paint, needs a bunch of work, that's for sure.

After fighting with the power co. and local inspectors (nobody got hurt) we finally got the power turned on again (a power pole went through our shop roof) so I've been playing catch up for two weeks,I finally got some free time to mess around with the biz coupe again,I made another wheel arch for the rear fender (now I have a pair) I wanted to fire it up and pull it outside but gas started spewing out of the vent hole in the carb ,I guess it sat to long without being run and the float is gummed up,so I pulled the carb off and I'm rebuilding it...One step forward but only one step back today,a good day fer sure...

Good to hear you got back on it!

I got the seats out of the Gran Sport to put the carpet in, but of course I can't stop there and I cleaned up the floor and rust and shot some picklex on there before I paint the floor tomorrow. I also got over to the M-I-L's house and got some work done on painting the bedroom.

I still will get out there for some more today but damn it was nice sitting on the couch and watching a ball game too!

There should be a lot of options out there for ready made fenders. Anything from a utility trailer up to and including hot rod fenders.

I got a set of bead roller dies made for the belt line of my hood.

Too bad they don't work....

I used a set off of an antique air compressor trailer on my 30 chevy. I have to go look at a set a friend has.

Got the bead roller dies tweaked up. Lucky I didn't need to make new ones. I kept shaving them smaller and smaller til I got pretty close.

Should be close enough to visually not see a difference between the lines on the body and the new hood sides.
