Thank you so much, here's a bit more


Today we started to play with rear wing (but ran out of material) there will be lots of tweaking on this one
trying to fit around everything and still make it look right

A few pics of what's going on, Clynt getting started on rear wings...



First pic below: wings dips are closer



Second pic below: wings dips are further apart





Tail pipes will be moved in-board





I'm still not sure about the overall rear wing look yet we'll have to tweak it more this week.

Thanks troyboy, I have missed that part of your build RBS2 may not need holy rollers, the front is shorter and stock hight than yours.
Today I'll shoot some side shots and hight measurement.

Today Antony (nephew) and I turned RBS2 around so we can view front end and work on it better.



Clynt and I decided to move hood 3" forward, so we don't have to extend hood, cutting old hinges off



Welding hinges new location 3" forward (using old hood with headlight openings, so we can see what we're doing)





Then we jumped to finish front wing, cutting material...





Adding cross members on front wing





Jumping back to hood opens nice







It was a long day

This thing is looking more evil everyday. Keep up the great work.

(But for his sake, you should insist Clynt use eye protection when welding... he'll live to regret not using it.)

Just a note to say thanks for taking the time to post all the pictures that you do of the work in progress! It will be an excellent resource for all of us who modify our cars.

Thanks Bloozberry for the complement, it's getting there

About Clynt, I'm afraid it's too LATE

Thanks Sourmug, when ever RBS2 is finished I'd like to take a round trip to Calgary (see your perfect ride), to Edmonton (see family), to Jasper and back home.

Today Clynt and I started tweaking rear wings again, working around without altering existing exhaust system (that budget thing)
just moving exhaust tips in board, mocking up again...



Tweaking



















Wings look like ZZ Top logo

SO hey I went to the automotive store today to see if they had that Pilogrip...They do! but.... it cost more than the 3m glue here I grabbed some anyway to compare the two I am curious about the difference! I think ill try it out at work we have lots of scrap stuff i can destroy for fun!

Are the bumper frames you made internal structure? are they going to be covered by formed fiberglass? I was curious they look cool so far!!

We taped paper on lower wing to visualize ( not to look too goofy )



Lower wing still needs tweaking and after play with upper wing

It's probably the same stuff

Yes, Clynt's work will be covered foam and fiberglass and it does look cool as is ready for battle

I was gonna say probably a dark coloured heat shield to cover up the muffler and piping but if you are truely going Mad Max, maybe leaving that exposed is a good idea.

Much better the upper part is still to tame (get rid of those lights) there is going to be mesh between them
EDIT: Just the rear is all blacked out, not the whole body, no bumper pads (remember think EVIL )

What happened to the RX headlamps? The ones in the pictures look more like fog lamps in that location and you might get pulled over for them being so low, especially if under 24" in CA.

Curly has a point, I believe there is a height law here in BC about lights, and I don't know the exact limit off the top of my head. Now the grey area is, the cops don't enforce it, unless you give them a reason to, or they are having a bad day. Case in Point Clynt's side windows, or people with no front plate. So long as the cops love you, its no harm no foul. However get into an accident where ICBC can claim that its your fault because of the lights and you might be in for a world of hurt. (for those that don't know ICBC is our government car insurance)

Now on to the good chat. That is looking mean, and I love it. Kinda reminds me of an early 80's pro ralley car, or some serious exotic race car. With all the body mods, have you thought about building a fiberglass box to house a proper cold air intake for the motor. Would be kinda cool if you could turn one of the scoops into an echo chamber for the supercharger, really scare people when you get into the boost, plus the added benefit of pulling air from outside. IIRC you have a cone filter in the fender now?

Thanks Madcurl, you're right about that, I can still install RX headlights (making me rethink )
We'll see where this goes a shot with RX lights sit at 20" from floor to bottom lights

I'm not sure of the laws in your country, but it might be 18" or more for headlamps. I was digging the RX headlamps from the beginning.

I've found a couple of references for us here in BC (or perhaps it's for all of Canada, but theses were BC specific): 56cm minimum. Which is about 22.5".
