Frenching part 1 - Oct 24, 2010

It's been a few weeks and I only have a couple of hours of work to show. My project is to recess aka "french" the taillight panel in. Nothing crazy, but I thought it would give a subtle change to the car and it'll allow me to blend in my widened fenders better.

My first part is to build the metal under the trunk lid. I don't want that to just be left hanging, so I need to make something there. The trick is that it can not be too thick as that cuts into the area for the taillight panel.

I started with some solid wire and and made some tabs to help hold it where I wanted it. Then I made some sheet metal strips and attached them onto the top. I ran out of time today so all I did was my first pass of welding.

The next 2 weekends are booked so I don't suspect much progress for another 3 weeks. Rough time of year. It happens.
