Thank you AndyQB, She'll just stay as is for now we want to get her finished without anymore tweaking


Even so......have you considered making the very end of the deck lid projection parallel to the louvers?

I love this thread. The freedom and flow you demonstrate in working this out as you go along is inspirational. And quite, quite instructional.

again, project doing amazing meanwhile


Thanks for asking manoah2u, you got me tire reads "out side" , so that's all needed

Louvers part 5...

Cut end louver pieces and making them to fit

Thanks for asking kennn, yes I have, but I think having the louvers same as deck lid end might be to many layers of same.
I like to have louvers separate from end of deck lid (that is part of body) and colours.

I'm lucky to have an official photographer (Liam) to document, that's why the pics look very low

Those headlight buckets look like they should have always been that shape. Fit perfectly with the rest of the car. Well done Car-Lo.

Keep up the great work.

Hey Carlo, I've been following this thread for a while but I just registered for the forum today to post this. I got tired of waiting for the front fender so I just photoshopped one. Then I got a bit carried away and fulfilled my nostalgia for the late 80s/early 90s.

TODAY'S UPDATE...

Using corrugated plastic sheet, cut to shape form box







First time using two part foam, I used way too much yeast



Removed outer form box



Roughing out shape with saw, lots of waste, but fun to play



Sanding with 40 grid





Much more sanding to do yet, have to carve out bigger wheel well and shave hump down about 1/2 to 3/4" lower

I am not sure if we should rename you "The Genius" or "The Mad Scientist" either way the work you are doing is beyond imagination, honestly I don't think many of us could have imagined the stuff you are doing was even possible. If someone told me, Ya just make a box from plastic frame, fill it with spray foam and sand it down, you can make a super amazing race car body. I would have told them they were nuts and you simply can't do it. You are making so many of us take a double take its just awe inspiring.

Thanks for having me!

I'm flattered that you used my picture.

I was so happy today to see that fender finally in place!

I tried to decide what color looks best. Of all the fancy colors I tried, I think the white in your sketches might be the way to go.

Great work as ever - with the two part foam - I have found it's always better to pour into a confined fully closed (but vented) void. If you don't fill on the first pour - the foam can be added to with subsequent pours. I think you did ok and the foam looks bubble free and of good regular texture (because you made way too much) ;-)) but sometimes pouring into an open void can create all kinds of inner voids with bubbles and uneven texture in the resulting foam finish. Great looking fenders - like!

Doing it that way you can make the inner wheel well mould and the outer fender buck all in one go.

Thanks for sharing.

That time with any luck will not be for a LONG LONG time to come. I think by the time he is too old to drive it, internal combustion engines will be a relic like steam cars, and he will keep his car with him and be buried in it. (If not I am pretty sure he has grand kids that would love to have it.)

IIRC, John was offered an obscene amount of money once to sell RBS1 and would not part with it. So I think RBS2.0 won't be going any place soon.

Car-Lo;

After looking through the first of your update pictures, I was about to say you are so dangerously close to being done that you don't have too many more reasons to delay and change yet again...... And then I read your last sentence.......

What, specifically are you looking to change at the front? The current shape looks really good in my opinion. Remember, throw some primer on it to see what the true shape comes out with all the same colour before cutting to make sure you aren't missing a subtle line or something that sets it off properly....

As always, great work and looking forward to seeing your finished product.

So Johnny, how does this effect the "deadline" you told me about just last Sunday? You've got me worried.

I thought the fenders looked great! but i guess you know what's best. i'm sure whatever you come up with next will be even better,

I think somebody requested a red paint job?

Here is an idea, if you have not already destroyed the fenders you removed..... Make them removable. Glass in some brackets, hinges with pins or something. So you have the option of running with or without the fenders. Heck if you hinged them you could make them adjustable. Just think a body you could tweak to suit your mood on a daily basis. Lift them up a bit for a more aggressive look one day, and lower them down for a sleeker look the next, or just remove them all together for that Mad Max look you love.

I dunno, its just a suggestion.

P.S. I don't believe in BC it is technically legal to run a car without fenders unless its from the 1930's and cam without them from the factory. Not that a cop would necessarily hassle you, but he could if he wanted.

here's an idea



take the front lower part, take the center nose part, now let the sides at the front be completely open. let the fender top side start where you currently
have cut out the headlight 'holes'. mount LED daylight running lights on the vertical diagonal part of the line, or mount them high and 'angry'.

use these for actual headlights:


you could even make some kind of 'pop up' headlights.

you could also go for this look:



hanging headlamps on the hood, might use thinner sharper lights or ford edge lights if you will.

this might be some inspiration, even though IMHO i wouldn't go for this one below (link),

an old favourite racing game comes to mind tho, 'megarace'. it had several awesome weird futuristic post-apocalypse type cars.
