Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

picked up a tailgate from the truck yard just incase i effed it up i would still have my stock gate.... i guess this could be a how to for the SD tailgate handle relocate
I just poked holes where the holes were and stuck the bolts in to get it close



making sure its even


Tape it up , you can see the lines through the tape


cut inside the lines , never on the line so you can trim to fit, FYI for the ones who dont know

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma


turned out good except for the weird angle of the handle but oh well .. also i might add before you screw the plate down get someone to hold it in place while you pull the handle andmake sure it pulls the latches equally, where i was going to mount this one one side didnt pull in all the way so i had toslide it over a hair to equal it up, maybe not a big deal for some but just a heads up

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

shaving the old handle hole



first few tacks to get it to stay



first time using this new welder but it came out alright, could of had some more heat but it worked, before this it was 2007 when i welded last so gotta get back in the groove.. you like the BIRD SHART weld on theleft side? i dont ( not sure what happend there)



next is the license plate box under the old handle... post pics later
ALERT if anyone wants details on relocating handle i have more detailed pics , might add a how to to Suicidedoor section because i got it from them but until then if you want pics let me know.

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

I marked the centerline of the license plate box and the center line of the tailgate... lined them up together and marked around them....




got it cut out, yes i warped a little when i welded in the handle filler, its just in that spot.. and i also found some body filler on the right side of the hole for the box.



making sure the hole is the same on both sides. close enough

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

putting it.... i actually ended up sinking the top ( closest to handle) in almost flush with the tailgate skin and pulling the bottom out a little more than it is in the picture... so its at an angle. looks good that way



level the gate and make sure the box is level and shes good to go



not happy with the welds but ohwell. maybe find out i need to fix some spots when i grind them down. but thats it so far ill post more when i get the box finished

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

on the last pic, it looks as if you welded it with the box higher than the gate metal. when you flap disk this down, wont it just "eat" away the welds? looks good other than that. aslso the grille looks pretty cool man, dont destroy it, you might be able to sell it for some extra change

yeah i did your right.... ive already grinded it down with the right contour as the tailgate ( you can see in some spots the hair line line of the metal edge)
and im re welding it .... i only got that one side welded in until i realized in wyotech when i made a rollpan with a frenched plate box i cut it to fit and then spot welded the corner edge where the box and skin meet.... just had to remember the way i did it in wyotech haha... but yeah i posted the pic cause the welds were not bad lookin and i dont have any newer pics than that one.... well i wasnt gonna destroy it i had another grill , i was just gonna stick that in the back of the garage somewhere.. maybe if i touch it up a bit it may look better. i have a billet grill i just have to cut in half to fit and it might look better...... thanks for

thanks dude, if anyone mounts the license plate box as high up as i did, you gotta watch out for that inner support, i had to notch it and re weld it to get the plate box to sit as low as i got it.. if not it was only like half an inch deep and i didnt like it. so watch for that

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

alright this thread isnt too popular , but it is kinda boring stuff so far. got some more stuff done....

heres a tiny roll pan i built in Wyotech.



this is the hole for the license plate light wires and the weld under it is welded to the inner structure to avoid it vibrating because it was right up against it.. if you think i should grind it smooth or leave it let me know, the light will cover it



glassed in finally, just took this picture like 10 minutes ago



perfect combo


and my filler/paint "station" kinda cluttered




and what are these!!??

HHR lights, nice! Almost You plan on making the horizontal or vertical? If they were horizontal it would be like vette lights but cooler!

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

oh im puttin the reverse lights in the tailgate ands the brake lights where the stock lights go. yeah i love the vette lights but too many people have done it but i have to have the look so it was either HHR's or Cobalt, found a wrecked HHR with just the passenger side left together, they are really easy to mount too. as soon as i get the filler work straight im gonna start cuttin for the reverse lights so i can get the tailgate completely done. eventually ill get some LED taillights but its all good it will look sweet

Not the LED bar lights either, the normal HHR lights but the aftermarket LED's. but yeah im goin for the vette tail light set up, i think if they were a little smaller it would look sick with 3 on each side but it will look good. and for HHR lights you dont need a pocket but im gonna french them in a little so i need that french pocket, if no one knows how they mount illeventually get pictures and show ya so if anyones thinkin the same idea they will know how simple it is

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

updates soon, been cleanin up garage and just got the reverse light positions marked and started to cut. Waiting to prime the tailgate until after i get the light pockets made and welded in and what ever other body work is needed after that...... ill take a picture of the progress so far here in a few and post them.. i think i found a good solution for the light pocket metal instead of buying new stuff. we shall see if it works

edit. oh yeah finally got the brackets from the UPS man today for the left side lights. ill take photos of them incase anyone is curious. I bet the UPS guy is wondering why he is here every other day but oh well its keepin him busy

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

alright some progression pics , had to use my phone on these cause i almost didnt take them cause i didnt have the camera but it works. and dont flame for the body filler, not 100% sanded yet and yes i warped the handle area but there were alot of hidden damage wround where i put the license plate box, you can see filler in some of the old pics. but if you must flame, flame away ......

heres the roughout of where the lights are gonna be, the little hole is where the center is ( measured 4 times times to make sure it was the same on both sides). the bigger circle isnt accurate so dont look at that but its about how big the hole will be eventually....i wish i could put them to the side more but the latch assembly is there it should look good though



gotta love the dremel. see im just cutting the hole big enough to set the light in and line it up to trace around it to get the position right cause im frenching them in...


and these are the brackets i was waiting for, the black piece. ill put the lense from the outside then the bracket goes in from behind and pretty much pinches the metel in the middle to hold itself in. pretty simple design for making them work

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

i got excited so i had to run inside and post the pics even though photobucket took 8 years to load them. but heres some pics....

i drilled a hole and cut some of the back of the gate out to see what i was workin with. it will be a nicer hole when im done



got the hole dremeled out to where i could set the light in and i DA'ed the marker off and then traced around the light to make the actually size hole that will eventually be there.




Sexy isnt it?? i thought so. even more when its frenched in

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

well callin it quits for the night, dont wanna piss off any nieghbors with my cutting and thats pretty much all i gotta do now lol... anyways heres the other light in, If i had my stupid camera i would get better shots but this is from my phone, ill get a farther away shot tomorrow....



and this was my failed attempt at the frenching pocket wall thingy haha... i wrapped tape aroung the light thinkin it would work good as a measurement, peel the tape off the light and lay it straight over metal and cut it... UH NO its too short, but you get the idea what i gotta do, i am halfway through cutting a long as piece that is a little wider too cause i realized i need to have room to adjust the depth.. im hoping to get about an inch deep after its all said and done... but here ya go

yeah they are HHR tails, the reverse lights are what are going in the tailgate, so yeah they are white. the brake lights are going in the same place as the stock tail lights as soon as i finish the tailgate, the brake lights are slightly bigger than the reverse lights... hope that answers your question,

the red ring around the reverse lights are just reflectors by the way ( i wish they lit up for running lights, would look sick)

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

got started late but ready to cut out for bottom of the cups so it should get together quickly. but just got the other ring made and fitted in and my phone was gonna die so i took some pics and came to load them on the computer while my phone charges so heres the pics.... its so hot today by the way



if you look inside the hole in the first pic you will see the rod for the latch, i was planning on having to modify it to go around the tail lights but i think its gonna work perfect and not interfere with the lights..




and this is the light in but its taped up to protect it but you get an idea.... i had it in there to check clearance around the light, i wraped the lights with 5 layers of tape on the edges plus they have some play in the holes so when i do the bodywork and paint, the thickness of all that wont make the lights TIGHT in the hole. after its all said and done they should go in easy with a little play.. hope that makes sense

Re: Project: Rejuvenation 99' Noma

didnt get much else done today, i looked and it was 9 already and i lost my motivation lol...

this pic is the bottom made and tacked on, i tacked it better from the outside to make sure it held because i didnt trust the ones i tacked to start with. not perfect but best i can do without any metal shaping tools. ( plus the lights arent perfect circles which made it harder but it gave me a good start and ill filler it and try and get the shape batter after its all welded in.



you can see the better tacks on the back, i dremeled the edge of the bottom plate even with the sides before so once i get close to being done with the spot welds around the edge ill grind them tabs you can see down,... with the start of the cut out and i found the center and used a template i made from the HHR taillight holes i got from the junk yard...



and the hole is done with a little trimming and tweeking to center the light in the cup as good as i could but it turned out good i think



dont look at the black tape it was from yesteday and since then the heat has messed it up, it was to show me the center line of the taillight


..and thats it for the night, i got maybe half of the cups bottom welded on, finish it up tomorrow and start the other side and finish that before i weld them to the gate
