Post  DirkWegman on Wed Sep 26, 2012 11:12 pm

I thought why not share some pictures over here. :-)

already putted some on the introduce page.






And stripped the car down:





Starting to build a new front.
(test fitting)



and after some banging and welding...



just need to make the vent holes and tidy up the welds then i will use some lead filling to make it nice.

Yes i did convert the indicator holes. You have to locate where the hole has to come and cut lines into the higher areas so its easier to flatten it.

guide is over here: (this is also the guy where you can buy the conversion pannel)

have to weld a lot i guess. New front, wings, inner wings, bottom, door skins, a panels, rear valence and more i think. :-)

I think this front is worth doing the job an time.
Yes it wil cost you money and yes you have to cut into a nice mini panel but i think the result is a nice and firm front last for years.
And if i can do it i think every one can.

I think to! But first I need to weld some bars in it and then I can start with the bottom.
