Progress!!!

Cool thing about the club site being down is that I actually got a lot of work done on the car last week

I had a full week of vacation, the weather was excellent, so I rolled her out of the garage and started busting...

I started with the rear bumper
the fit was nice, just needed some very minor trimming
Welded on some tabs for the Dzus-fastners and slapped it on...

do these make my ass look big?


I mounted the front hood using the stock front hinges, which needed a little trimming to get the hood to align nicely
The "frame" of the hood needed some trimming as well. Step by step, I got it to fit as it should
Not bad really for f/g parts

Next I welded in tabs for the front hoodpins

I hoped to get the front fenders and front bumper done as well, but ...

The front bumper is about 2 inches too wide, so that needs some major surgery
I'm going to wait with that 'till I get the front valence

The front fenders need major surgery as well, but I did get some progress on those

I also need to do some welding on the driver side inner fender

Looks good. I spent some time on my car too this weekend. Installing Dzus fasteners on a car that is already painted is fun.

I like your chose of hardware. Very racecar looking.
