Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

Glass filler applied.

I will take the 40 grit to it later on and put some lightweight on after that to really smooth things out.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

Glass filler all smoothed out and lightweight filler on now.

Once this is sanded down, there may be a few pinners to fill, then primer.




Once the primer is on and blocked out, I'll give a base/clear of black.

I can't use POR because it's not recommended for anything other than metal.. but paint is what's on a firewall anyways! It'll look good.

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

Why so much fuel? Because on a 4 hour road trip, I don't wanna be the guy who has to stop 4 times to refuel. Quick math showed us that assuming I get 15mpg, I can prolly get 350km out of a tank.

They got the majority of it tacked today, so I stoppe by afterword to grab it for another test fit. I'll get pics tomorrow.

Ohhh, you so funny.

But seriously, if you get any good offers, shoot me a text.

Between working on the coupe and people picking up parts from me, I'm pretty tied up tomorrow. But I would like to get out Sunday to see it all and check the fit on the fuel cell.

this, looks you could have shaved a couple inches off the bottom and not lose a ton of space, i can just see you riding low and hitting a manhole cover or some debris and destroying it, not to mention dragging on inclines

Re: No mom, it'll stay stock...

Rear of the tank is getting a 4" by 4" chamfer along the entire width. And I never ever drive that low. Around here, if you don't roll at a static dropped height, you're guaranteed to get picked off by a cop. That and the roads are way too dippy.

Etch primer applied..







Here is the bottom of the drivers door at the rear... I peeled back the outter skin and cut the inner skin to the radius, then I made a few releif cuts in the outter and hammered and dollied the outter skin back on with the new radius,,, didn't get a pic of the outside, but I will.
A little weld on the inside and a little body work and the rads will be nice... then I have to match the body to the doors.

Gives the corner a softer edge. It wasn't so noticeable before the rocker drop, but after it stood out like a sore thumb. You round the door corner off, then glass or metal work the same rad into the body. Just a style thing.

And yes, extremely anxious. My goal was Carlisle but due to some unforeseen circumstances not related to the truck, priorities have changed. In a way I feel I've relieved myself of stress and pressure, but at the same time I have a whole new set of challenges to face with my parents in the near future.
