Thanks fierogtlt1, more angle shapes to come...

Today she was jacked up for some tweaking, finishing end of scoop and new shape of wheel well



Old end panel has to be cut ( marked in red ) and replaced with new design



Starting to cut













Starting to carve out new wheel well shape, goes much better with overall look (getting rid of the round look)

Thank you davylong86 you're way to nice to her

Today playing with front rocker panels, cut out and glassed front panels



Test fit



Cut the old out (shown in red)







I was able to do surgery on her without taking front wheels off and not chopping up the MICHELINS



Glassed in panels



Still have to fill in area red, between panel and liner

Thanks Joe, that's so true I'm being treated and getting better

Doing so, I cut through (on both sides)



Glassed in hole



Sanding and finishing wheel well







Cleaning off dust



Primed

Today a little tweaking...

The scoop spear is sitting a little to high



A rough photoshop showing how it should look, a little lower looks much better and balanced



unbolting rocker panel





Cutting glassed edge so spear can be ripped off







Cutting scoop panel off rocker panel





Sanding off old glassed area



It started raining



Yes, I know more treatment for me

Was Clynt there did he finally have his nervous breakdown? You don't have much time before the Arlington Run. Hope you get it all worked out before then as right after that is the All Pontiac Show in Langley. We are all hoping RBS makes a showing this year. (I may not be there, but I would still really love to hear that you made it)

No breakdown, but he did have a little surgery on his back and he's okay.
No Arlington this year, RBS2 will be roughly running in late fall

Honestly, I don't know if this car will ever be done. Once something seems fine, 2 months later, it'll be pulled off and cut to pieces.... Lol.

I'm just impatient.

Thanks for asking Sourmug, I lost count I'll to have check it out sometime
Next summer we'll have hook up when I cruise down to Calgary

Today while my buddies where having fun at Tim Hortons, I was working on her oh lonesome me

Getting rid of notch on rear panel shown in red and tweaking it as per concept sketch, lines flow so much better





Notch capped in red I'm laying down holding lower spear in place while PLIOGRIP sets in, tape wasn't holding to well



My nephew taking fun action shots (worm's eye view) while I was in this position holding spear panel to set in







Notch is history

Thanks TXOPIE, I guess is fun to watch two old hosers, eh the end will come, but maybe more tweaking after

The latest SCOOP...
Not enough clearance between tire and tip of rocker as shown in red, have to trim that



While some trimming has to be done, she said her scoops are a little to small wants them enlarged as per concept sketch



Here we go, larger scoops for her she didn't trust me with the grinder, wants me to use the dremel,





Scoops are off



Making new templet



While rockers are off, finishing off panel



Larger scoops rough in,

The more and more I see you with the doors up, the more I fall in love with them. Once you get the car in primer you will have to drop by so I can drool all over it. Just make sure that you stop by before you make that run to Calgary, as the Calgary guys might try to hijack you and keep you there.

I'm always asked what adhesive and material used on RBS2, pic below, any suggestions and tips would really help

The doors are for younger guys, it's hard getting in and out at our age, but they look cool
So I hear you're marooned at home too , just like me, so bring the kids and visit us anytime.

A true master at work.

John as not to tempt anyone else to delve into this modification madness, please box up all the used and unused templates and mail them to Florida.

I will properly dispose of them (ahem) to make sure no one else falls under the spell of the fumes of fiberglass.

You're always to nice

Hood is not wide enough with ridges on both sides, had to add extensions to louvers



Lid just plunked over hinges for fun it looks better as a fastback, but it won't stay that way

Great job so far - thanks for sharing..

I am thinking that you could now afford to be a little more 'Lambo' with the side air vents/collectors - it's moved on sooo much since you re-did those,,,

Keep going - your progression, vision and engagement are very inspiring.

btw, i know its not finished, but - are you sure the rear tires are on correctly? the pattern looks like one of the rear tires is mounted incorrectly imho,
they are not 'mirrored' equally.....maybe i'm wrong, but rather say it before you ride it finished in the rain some time.......

again, project doing amazing meanwhile
