Damn, that is serious!

This may sound like a silly question compared to what else you are doing to the car, but what are you using to paint your interior and roll bar? Regular ol' spray paint in a can or...???

I did paint it witha can, but i didn't like it and it isn't very good wearing. So i washed it all off and sprayed it in 2k clear over base. It's a big job.
I managed to get the shape of the back half of the rear guard. Just have to do the other rear guard and all the basic shape is done.

Nope. No sales here. Just impressed. That is unless you want a used brg soft top with a ripped zipper and a boot cover.

I apolgize, I'll bow out. I forgot I hadn't introduced myself on MT. I'll jump on that. I apricate it and your exceptional warm welcome for that mater.

Lightyear- Sorry for holding up your thread. Your build is very impressive though.

Bye.

I am interested to see how all this is made. I suck at body work but it is always fun to watch things like this come together.

I have to ask because it look so out of place...what's the 2x4 in the car for? Also, what's the sharp edge on the rear fender doing?

Looks pretty meticulous. I admire the patience you have.

Body work is pretty much done, probably a day to finish off all the flanges and give it a coat of sealer. Then i can do a bit more sanding and get it ready for making the moulds.
