This time I made sure it was dead centre Neils88 you are keeping me honest







That's looking a lot better tucked into body

It looks off to me. Sitting a little left of center. I noticed you used a level to plumb down from the lock. That only works if the whole car is sitting level to begin with

Even if he hadnt fixed it I doubt if any one would have noticed 3/8" once the body work was on .As it sits now , I think it looks perfect .

Looks to me like maybe the camera was not "perfectly" in the center of the car, which makes the pipes look a little off from center.

Appears to me that the camera was a little to the right of center when the pic was snapped.

Whatever the case, great progress, and I for one am very glad Car-lo decided to stick with it and work toward completion.

Hard to imagine anyone else being able to finalize his vision as well as himself!

HAGO!

Car-Lo, this system should sound really, really good. Exiting the exhaust pulses close together like this will produce a much more exotic sound and tone.

Not to mention... "SpinTech."

I'm really looking forward to hearing it.

Since I was spinning my wheels and getting nowhere with rear end (rear end block)
Blair suggested to mount headlights and move forward, at least something will get done.
He also labeled headlight wires so I can hook them up for proper angle



Low view



Higher view



Side view



This week I'll make up brackets and mount headlights, right now they are just plunked on.

With C7 lights all around she might look like the mid-engine Vett

I just loaded the Photo into Photoshop, and leveled the car in the photo. (As you can see by the horizontal lines under the tires, and one along the tail light lip) A vertical line then goes perfectly from the trunk lock down between the center 2 pipes. Looks perfect to me! Great job!

Thank you very much JohnWPB,for straighten things out, you are officially my lawyer
I noticed when taking pictures with iPhone, the left side gets distorted (specially left wheel ) they all look stretched out.
A few samples...





Anyway, yesterday was day off, today I'll start with front fenders

Hi John, I thought the last incarnation of the front fenders back on page 22 were pretty good to be honest, and with the new lights would have worked well...

BTW have you added a method of headlight adjustment? Or is it built into the lamp? If its built in make sure your mounted within the parameters of the internal adjustment. You don’t want to be chopping final bodywork just to get your headlight alignment through the test right?

Keep sharing - and doing what your doing - all very annoyingly inspirational - but loving it.

Is there a link to the headlamps on ebay that you could share by PM maybe

Thanks Amida, you sure know all about that, you're the pro

I had to add more foam around lights before I start to carve and blend the fenders into the headlights, yes that part is fun

I hope you don't mind seeing small step by steptoday rough cut with saw only.
The fenders will have sharp edges same as headlights.

Thank you for the nice comments AndyQB, I almost forgot about you,as far as I know the headlights come preset,
The headlight alignment, I aimed the "low beams "on black foam board and that dictated the angle and location the way headlights sit.
I got used headlights last year from eBay, I don't think he's around but there should be a lot more around this year ?

You guys make me feel so young...
Started to rough sand the foam, still needs more sanding and leave enough space for fibreglass thickness.

Hey John, sorry for the thread hijack, I have misplaced your number. What was the stuff we used as filler during the shaping of the fiberglass. All I can remember is that it had short strands of fiberglass in it. I want to re-shape the nose a bit and add metal supports to the underside before I put the car back on the road. I am just terrified with the new speed that the lower lip would tear off at 130mph and go under a tire. I made a few boo boo's and sanded through the fiberglass, exposing the foam in a couple spots.

Now back to your car, DAMN, that is looking good. I like many people are dying to see it hit the streets. I do fear that if you take it down Kingsway or Hastings or even Lougheed, you will cause many many accidents as people stare in Awe of the car.

P.S. The pictures you made for me, are now finally hanging up for everyone to view. I absolutely love them. Thank You.

Car-Lo it looks awesome, I have followed this thread for years always checking back periodically to see how shes coming along. I am posting because I have one comment which is just that your car now has some extreme lines, very angular and everything flows together with purpose. The sun roof does not follow these purposeful lines and to me it stands out a little. I only noticed it because of the aerial shot. Maybe with a roof painted black it will blend in enough to be unnoticed. Just my two cents.

Your fabrication skills are wild! Keep doing what you do
