09-23-2018 08:48 PM Headlight bucket install part 1
I took on a different project today and installed the headlight buckets. My car came with incomplete ones so instead of trying to hunt down parts and spend lots of time trying to restore them I just bought some repops. Glad I did because they're complete, but I'll have to modify the brackets for installing the trim as they are too long. Will do that another day. I also made some metal frames for the inside of the fiberglass shell to act as a big washer and disperse any loads/ stresses on the fiberglass. I wouldn't trust just tiny little washers on the edge of the fiberglass to last long very on the street.

09-03-2018 09:26 PM pass fender flare, and more welding
Baby steps.. Or should I say one step forward, two steps back? However that saying goes, but now I'm taking the rear axle out as I have found 3 leaks from the welding joints from the axle builder. I tried welding it up, but I'm getting bad porosity/ contamination in the welds Iv'e tried so far. I wanted to fix it myself to avoid the hassles of removing it, returning it, and all that, but that didn't work out. So out it came, and back it's going. I also did a bit more welding- made some progress on the pass side fender flare, and filled in a few holes ot "un 210" the car, and made a roof patch panel. silly me forgot to work on the lower end of the pass fender flare, so it's not done yet. More to do...
