It is pretty close to that right now. By the time I trim everything up and get the visor shaped and reinforced they will be even closer. I think the roof visor can be a little bit bigger due to the proportions of the windshield relative to the diameter of the headlight.

Unkl Ian - yup planning on keeping the visor for now. Will wait til after I get the rest of it cleaned up and the car lowered to see if I keep it. Right now, I am liking it.

I love it John, I think you need to switch to Ducttape to hold the fender skirts at highway speed, but looks awesome man!!

That thing is going to be different!! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/chillin.gif[/img]

I just wonder if a Notch body would have been better suited for the purpose though? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Idunno.gif[/img] Just thinking of the rear... or maybe you've allready thought about that too? [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

for the way he is laying the rear window, he would have needed a notch body AND a fasty body to do it with a notch. i think he is on the right track with the fasty

For the trunk it would have been easier, but I wouldn't have ended up with the roof line that I wanted. Like 1slo3 said i would have still needed a Fastback. Plus I already had my old 71 Fastback and got the orange 70 for free. <G>

I am planning on using the stock Fastback decklid and just laying it down to line up with the new rear cowl. This will leave me a good sized space between the decklid and the rear window that I plan on using for the cooling air intake.

Something like this...

Yes, I know the reason for the use of the fasty roof. The lines with that will be perfect! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] I just thought that the body could have been from a Notch. Anyhow I see where you're going and the Fasty body will be as good too.

I know this is John's thread but I have a couple progress picks of my own hacked up late model t-3 (a '72 square):





bug headlight buckets, shaved drip rail / turn signals / door handles / antenna. early style rear fenders (well I'm still looking for a passenger side one). Mustang seats (thanks for the tip, John !)

Have you decided what you're going to do about bumpers? I like the no bumper look but it has my wife concerned heh.

I am going to fabbing the bumpers. They will wrap around to the fender openings in both the front and back. Something like this....



...but probably a bit smaller.

Not much progress today. I did manage to pick up some 1" square tubing for the rear roof support. I did some [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/AssScratch.gif[/img] trying to figure out the best way to support the rear of the roof and the future rear decklid and stuff.

No more [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Sawzallsmiley.gif[/img] or [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/welderface.gif[/img] . Maybe tomorrow if I get back from Columbus, OH soon enough.

Spent a little time last night chopping the bulk of the extra trunk material out of the way and started cutting and bending the support frame pieces for the rear of the roof. Here is one picture.



Going to try to get some more done tonight...if the rain holds off for a while.

Yeah, engine bay will be stock. I plan on running a Type 3 motor so will have the stock engine cover filling that hole. I will be building some ducting from the vents on the rear cowl to the stock ducts that start in the fenders and snake around to the rear apron before directing air into the back of the engine.

When I get on my computer later, I will sketch something up in PhotoShop to show you what I mean.

Here is a really quick PhotoShop trying to show the duct boxes and airflow to the Type 3 motor.



I also got a little bit more done tonight. Started trying to clean up the rear end some more, including the frame for the decklid.

If you were keeping the vents on the side it would be a good excuse to adapt a 55 Chevy style 2-tone paint treatment.

The vents are going to go. The cooling air will come from the new rear cowl vents between the back glass and the decklid.

I have played around with some two tone paint ideas. I think they are back on Page 2 of this thread. Will have to revisit them with the new ideas I have for the side trim.

******

Got a little more done tonight, but nothing worth posting pics of. I got the 1" square tubing cross brace tacked in at the back edge of the rear window frame. I also cut and fit a brace for the front edge of the package tray.

Not too far away from being able to tack the roof back in place. I am going to flip it over and finish off the side window opening before tacking the roof in place. Much easier to do it with the roof upside down than after it is in place and I have to weld upside down.

There's a yank living here in Oz that is doing some cool stuff with his notch to get a similar sled look as you.

He's taken the bonet skin from a 50s Cusso and fitted it as a relacement skin on the notch. Bloody awesome. Fitted a holden FC grille shell to the front and put an early type 3 moustache in the middle of it.

Grafting a fastback window section to the back of the passenger area.

Added fender skirts from a 49 Ford.

Hopefully will see it again next weekend and will take a few pics.

Matt -

If you do see it next weekend, pics would be appreciated. I had briefly considered a grill in the front, but so far have decided against it. No real function and I think keeping the nose smooth will help the look of the car.

More progress today. Was nice having the day off. Got lots done. Nothing real obvious, but important stuff to do.

I trimmed off the glass seal flange on the quarter window opening on the roof.



I also got the cross bracing for the rear of the roof and the package tray fit and welded in.





I also managed to add a dimmer switch to the line feeding my welder. Makes a noticeable difference with my little flux core welder. I blow through much less frequently at about a 75% setting. Thanks for the tip Scott Woodard. Only took me 6 months to get around to doing it. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/funny.gif[/img]

Been busy getting my Squareback ready for drving this summer and for the VW shows in the area, so I haven't been doing too much on the Lead Sled. I did spend a few hours over the last couple of days starting to get the inner structure for the new rear end in place. I welded in some cross bracing and have started fitting the package tray sheet metal. Here are a few progress pictures.





I want to add a couple diagonal braces on the rear roof support. I also need to make the new center section of the package tray and get it welded in.

Small steps, but steps in the right direction.
