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.

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.

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?

The Colors should have given it away - the Blue Door side is the driver's side (you flipped the photo) Red Door on the passenger side.
