Brian, I have had something similar to that in my head for years now, but I think it would look best to start with a fastback to get a better flow to the roofline.

Ah, too many projects... too little time! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yelling.gif[/img]

Started on the Lead Sled Type 3 this evening. Actually cut and welded some sheetmetal. I don't have the body shell back here yet, so I started working on the new headlight shape.

What do you all think?


This is what I am starting with. Pretty straight fender. Will be filling the turn signal hole, the gas filler door, and the bumper divot.


Some simple wireframe to help define the shape and give the sheetmetal a bit more defined edge.


Another view of the wireframe with the fender on the car.


Got some sheetmetal cut to rough shape and tacked on. Ran out of time to be noisy before getting any further.


View with the hood in it to get an idea of the new shape. I will be shaving the bump for the hood roundel too.

Will try to get it a bit further along tomorrow and I need to figure out how to duplicate it on the other side. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif[/img]

That is going to look so sick! [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img] Will the headlight still mount in the stock location and what are you planning for the trim ring?

Thanks.

I am not sure about the headlight mount. It will be similar to the stock mount, but probably recessed back just a little. I will make a simple trim ring or modify a stock one to close out the bottom of the headlight bucket.

More progress today. Got the passenger side headlight bucket mostly welded up. Still need to grind it all and hit any spots that I missed. Then smooth it all out with a little filler.





Started bending up the wirefame for the driver's side, too. Will make a template from the passenger side to cut the sheetmetal for the driver's side.

Threw in a headlight with the adjustment bracket and it looks like it will recess nicely. Have to move the mounting tabs, but not a big deal.



I think I will fab up a nice little dished trim ring to fill the gap between the light and the fender. This will let me finish the lower edge of the existing headlight bucket.

What do ya think?

Looks great John, your vision is starting to bear fruit. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img] Looks like you'll be busy most of the summer doing metal work. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img] My son Rob's been busy working on his Roadster too. He's been adding some hoods over the gauges in the dash. It's starting to look sweet. He's also working onm getting ready to start adding filler in some places so he can change the color of it. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif[/img] I'd post some pics, but they're still in my camera. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img]

That's some good looking work man. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bowdown.gif[/img] Have you ever considered using early Buick headlights to add to the sled theme? Not the big Chrome trim ring, just the headlight, grille and turn signal.



I was considering using some like this in my Ghia, but changed my mind.

Those are pretty cool, but I am going for more of a 55-56 Ford/Chevy look. I guess more Chevy since they were integrated as part of tthe fender and not as a separate bezel.

Hey Griznant-----tip this at a bit of an angle and use them on the front of your car with w small grill between them. could look killer. even upright as original might work.

Glad everyone is liking the headlight rework. I got the driver's side tacked together last night and the passenger side mostly ground down.

Of course my batteries died in the digital camera so no pictures yet. I will post some tomorrow after getting the rest of the driver's side welded up.

Looks like ther is some interest i the Focus I am selling....as soon as it is gone the Fastback shell comes home and the roof and decklid reconfiguration can start.

The Mustang roof is sitting next to the body shell right now. If it is going to help with the new roof line it will be coiming home tha same time as the body shell. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

Got the modifications on the other headlight bucket welded up tonight. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/Dancing.gif[/img]

Here are a couple of pictures. Just need to grind it all down and then I can start filling in the turn signal holes and stuff.
