One day I'll have to go through this thread and count how many times I've used the smilie.

Here's another 3.

I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.

John, are you still going to bring the decklid and rear valance down to meet the rear quarters like in your original rendering?

Probably something like that. Not real sure yet. I do have a good idea on the front bumpers. Just have to find the donor bumpers for a reasonable price.

Not quite. That original rendering was done before I had the thought to extend the rear fenders. THe rear end will be more like this.....but with some kind of bumper.

Thanks, but I think I am OK for now. I had about 1-1/2 parts cars to start this project with.

Any chance Packard tail light lenses could be cut down to fit in place of the VW lenses? Just a thought.

Yup I am.



This is what I got done today. Got most of the inner fender to car interface tacked in place. Still lots of welding to do, but it is more progress. For grins I dragged her out of the garage and put the taillights adn rear reflectors on for some pics.










I really like this last shot. It shows off the "fins" nicely and shows the tie -in to the license plate light.

I also cleaned out all the extra sheetmetal I have been "storing" in the car. I did some on the inner structure of the roof to body joint. I have a game plan for it that I will start on over the next few days.

The last pic looks cool.

For the other pics,the shape is not as clear,
because the different colors distract the eye.
But John definitely has a good handle on what looks good.
