The body rebuild continues!
I have just posted another 40+ step by step pictures to my public gallery here
The Body Rebuild
but a few highlights for the thread
This rear parcel tray panel isnt looking so hot
So lets chop it all out
In with the new inner panel
and the outer panel
Outer quater can then be spot welded in place.
Much better. As you can see, fittment on these repro AMD panels is excellent!
Panel gaps are bad either out of the box! These will be tightend latetr
Next the roof support was blasted
And thats it for the body repair so far. Next will be the other side, plus the roof skin.
Then the upgrades can start
In the mean time, Jason from the GMR finshed of the rear end
by fitting the brakes
The Full gallery is here Rear end build Album
Sexy red wilwood stoppers will look lovely against the black discs and gold wheels
Jason uses his nogin and an air line to perfectly locate the caliper braket before welding
for the parking brake, I decided to use a GMR spot caliper
and clamped in place with a single bolt in the mech to locate
and finaly, my xmas present ready to ship
In other news, I have found a new designer to continue the good work Mike Gillet started.
Unfortunetly Mike doesnt have the time to take the project further so victor from Victor Fulton Designs has stepped in to get the ideas out of my head and onto paper.
Here is a sneak peak from Victor.
This is by no means the final render, just victor showing off.
