LornesGT..... im REALLY hoping to do er' back in black like she was, its just a matter of getting it as straight as possible. Its pretty good now but when its all back together i'll have block sand the heck out of it to make it right for black. If not then im thinkin white.

Bozzie: Will you be making a mold of the splitter, or leaving the MDF in the part?

BTW, it's been a very inspiring build. Thank you.

I like the splitter, would that have any negative effects on the cooling system though since it's closed off at the bottom? The only air coming through would be from the grill, instead of pulling some from underneath as well.

Awesome craftsmanship, I've been keeping a close eye on your progress. Any chance you would be willing to make another splitter to sell? I recently purchased one of Amida's 512 bumpers myself haven't got it on the car yet though.

ZMC. That's a good question about cooling issues. I actually used a fan and some smoke to see the effects of where the air goes. The splitter design eliminates a lot of turbulence under the car below the radiator. It is much smoother flow and there's a 4" gap between the lower radiator and the splitter bottom plate. Any excess air gets bypassed smoothly. Having a extractor vent on the hood gets the air out quickly. It's a cobra vent that I opened up a little more. Issues were more getting hot air out them cooler air in. I gonna extend the lower pan to just past the front crossmember to the gas tank eventually. Congrats on your bumper. Very well made and the fit is very good. I would love to make you a splitter but I modified the 512 nose wider on each side to cover more of the wheel when looking at if from the front to work better with Archie's wider fenders. I don't have the original shape so it would be impossible to make one to fit yours... Sorry. Would love to see any pics of your car !

You have been working hard on your project
I like the splitter

Did you measure how far it sits from the ground ?

Any chance you might bring it to Daytona ?

85lamb, thank you. I did measure it and im going to have to raise the front about 1/2" to help alittle. Its low, but i like it that way. I WISH i was going to daytona for multiple reasons ! Im gonna put my sights on next year, She should be lookin pretty good by then, and on the road.

Tony, thanks man, i wish i was goin down south, and i could finally see your ride for real. Someday.....

In the meantime , lots of sanding and filling, straightening, stuff you would never see. But...... i got to mount the Lotus lights.............

Those tail lights and insets look so much better than the originals you were working on in my opinion. Well done on the build. Car looks amazing.

Snoopy. The filler is Duraglass. Its a body filler with fiberglass hairs in it to strengthen it. Drys like a rock. I use it on seams and for filling in. I try not to go more than a 1/8 to a 1/4 in some spots but i guess you could go alot thicker if your using it to make a mold.

Don, i hear ya on that and thank you. I just gotta stop changing my mind so i can finally drive this thing.

Getting the door panel fitted....




Door panel had to be shortened by about 6" and the height lowered by about 4" I made a pocket in the rear for the seat belt to have easier access. Door release was on the inside of the door so i moved it to the outside and rebent it to length. Lock lever just had to be shortened.

Gotta say bozzie i really admire your patience on this build. Having the skills is one thing but the patience is a whole different level. So many little things i see you do that adds weeks to your build each time you go after something. Nicely done.

The windshield is quite a bit bigger. Its real close at the top. The sides are close except down at the bottom. It extends about 7" out



I had to cut a section of fender out to get access to the bottom corners.

Lookin' good Bozzie.

If you're looking for ideas on how to solve the wiper dilemma with that extended windshield, Yarmouth Fiero has worked out one solution in his build thread. Also, what's your plan for the quarter window area? Cutting down a set of fastback windows or going with something a little wilder?
