  1. i got the gap looking real good now i still need to build up the upper edge a little with a mig then grind it to fit but i am happy with it now. the bottom at the rocker needs a little work. there is supposed to be about a 1 inch line across the bottom of the fender and it just rounds down,a pair of flanging pliers and i can bend in the line. i rolled the wheel lip with a 1/8 inch wire inside. it came out dent free and it is very strong .we have all the body panels now _MG_3386.JPG _MG_3388.JPG _MG_3387.JPG _MG_3390.JPG

  6. Toss the body panels back on, throw some glass in, then rob an entire drive-train from a Fox. :D

    Instant Rat-Rod. Just put the exhaust on the outside somehow. o_O
     
  7. If that's a recent photo-looks like it's held up well while sitting the last 5 years
     
  8. Those cool looking race stripes up the trunk lid are condensation drips in the dirt on the lid ,they go over the roof and down the cowl ...most paint shops couldnt get them that straight :rlaugh:
