Been a long week at work not much time to work on the car. I had to cut out the work I did to get the wipers in. I think I finally got it done. The motor is in stock location and wiper system rotates so I think that part is done. I have a couple of pictures to add. Tomorrow I will fiberglass it all back again. If you have the nuts to do this it took me over ten hours to redo the rods and levers to make the wipers work. It will save time if you do the wipers when the cowl is cut out.

Got the wipers going and worked on filling the gaps around the Sebring windshield today. I also removed the headlights and a few other things.




Once this is done I can move to the headlights.

This thread does not hurt his business he does a great job of that on his own with his diagrams, pictures, trashing other people that challenge him or tells others they think him selling rusty angle iron for motor mounts is not professional and the many times he takes the bait and Stephen sets the hook. Then he calls other people stupid!


So if I read the above posts correctly, You would prefer Archie to not be involved in YOUR build threads, But yet you are fully aware that your friends are trolling bait in YOUR build threads to get Archie to bite. See a contradiction there?

In fact others in this thread have also mentioned how your friends tossing digs out to others has trashed many of your other build threads and that they were starting to do it in this thread BEFORE Archie even posted.

While I really enjoy following your build threads and seeing nice the work you do, Archie is not the one you need to ask to stop the drama, It would be your friends that consistantly invite the drama that you need to talk to.

Looks good. The windshield mod has been lurking in the back of my mind for 3-4 years now.

Could you post two profile pics that show the before/after difference?

Thanks, Same here but I have to say it is a challenge. Once I get it finished I will try to do that.

You are very welcome. Glad I could help.
I almost forgot I made a cap of the top of the front bumper yesterday. Once I pull it I will be able to use it to build the new front bumper and get the headlights cut in. I have to what for the sides of the car until the wheels are made and shipped. Once they are where they need to be I will know how wide the car will be.

Had a little time to work on the car today. I worked on the windshield area some.

I had to fill at the bottom and fill the center at the top. I have a cap to start the bumper with. Not sure how it will end up yet but with the top I will be able to work on the lights.

I just used tape it was faster than waxing and less work.


Will have to go to Dallas tomorrow Hope to pick up the Stu wipes and get the black and red leather for the interior.

Not a lot going on here but work. I did take a few minutes last night after work to try something. I need a shape for the front bumper so I measured the fender on the 16' trailer and it was close. I thought this will give me the same curve on the sides so what the heck. I will pull the skin off tonight and see how it turns out then graft it to the top piece I made, and then see where I go from there.

My wife laughed at me for the fender thing but I pulled it off held it up to the car and she could see what I did. I just need time to work on it more. I still have to cut some metal on the front for the headlights to fit in also.
I will be selling the wheels off the car soon. I am hoping the new ones come in around the end of the month.

I had to cancel the wheels this weekend they have managed to put them out an extra 2 months. I am tired of waiting so back to looking for a nice set of wheels that will let me make the body wider. If anyone has any suggestions I am open.

ruff racing has a decent selection and will drill the bolt pattern you need.
