Hello, Hey I can answer this, because the first ones had holes on the bottom for the GT ground effects. Now they dont need to fill these holes. Thanks Norm

Correct. Thank's Norm.


Like everything else on #020, they're several more not-so obvious reasons. The clues are in the thread.

A few progress pics. These pics are actually a couple of days old.

Note that we've finally eliminated that "Hip" look on the rear fenders.

I can't believe it! I have been thinking of a way to blend an regular notchback quarter/sail over an existing quarter/sail along with the Archie's rocker to make my own version of a wide-body......and here it is.....sort of. I got most of it worked out in my head, but one question is how/what is used to bond an existing bumber end to the end of another bumper? Is there a "best" adhesive to use? It looks like you had the same general idea and I love it. You have given me a vision to shoot for.

thanks

By the way, I wasn't planning on extending into the door like you did. I want to end at the door like the factory wide-bodies.

More pictures.......... please note, none of these parts are done yet. They are "in process" pictures......

All the fiberglass layup work is done on the rear bumper & it's back on the car......







We also got a long way on designing & modifying the rocker panel.......

Using rivets, fiberglass, and expanding foam sandwitch between the two parts (PG. 7). I'm glad Archie and the Crew are giving you a clear vision to shoot for.


Yep. We're on track, hehe.

Hey Archie. Did you do the "switcheroo" using Troboy's rims? Did #020 mad-arche's clear? Enquiring minds would like to know and I have a set of 345 awaiting for "Operation: 12-Inch Deep."

We'll do the switcheroo as soon as we can set your car back on the floor.

How about a few pics of the rocker/scoop modifications on the other side of the car?
