Got my paint sticks out again.. Used them to space the cowl from the windshield. These things are Really handy.

While i glassed the cowl i bonded the Quarter windows to the car. I had to cut them to fit the new opening. I taped both sides when i cut them and used a fine air saw blade. No problems and they fit pretty good.

You can see the curve in this pic. Also i used a marker to mark the new windshield line on it. I will cut this so it lines up better with the black part of the windshield

Had to take her outside and hose her down.. What a mess. Heres the general pic of where shes at. Enough for today. Next is to start molding the fenders back on and getting them to look right with the windshield. Im taking her to Carlisle this year do or die !!!

Have you set the windshield yet, or are you waiting to do the dash filler panel first??

Hey Bob. The windshield is just sitting there. Its so nice to be able to just lift it off and do work to the dash. Im going to finialize the dash and get it together first. I was thinking about that actually and before the fenders get put back on the windshiled needs to be bonded because its just under the fender. Then the fenders get glassed back on. Thats the day i finally get a Plate on this sucker !!

Excellent design and workmanship. That's going to be one beautiful custom car when everything is in place. What I do not understand is how you we able to join fiberglass to the urethane rear quarter panels.

I believe the quarter panels he is using are fiberglass parts that come with the widebody and the only urethane left is the door skins.
I have seen it done and seems to work out and if I'm correct all of the mad arch widebodies need the fiberglass door caps glassed into the urethane doors. I may be wrong they might use some sort of two part to bond them together.

One of the most surefire way to do this is grind the spot down and use rivets to hold the parts together this will form a permanent bond then glass it over then use a coat of filler to even it oui.

Here you can see how the latch works, going thru the pin when you press it down. Its pretty cool ! Repeat for the other side.

Back to the dash. WIth the windshield out...a must.... working on the dashpad. Shortened it about 3" and just filling in with liquid plastic which remains flexable so it wont break or crack when i take it out or put it in. Fit and finish is the time consuming part. You can see the forward dash piece against the windshield... tweeters will be mounted into this as well as the photo cell for the auto lights and security LED.

Installed a Removable Steering wheel hub. Makes getting in and out ALOT easier especially working on the interior. I shoulda done this first !! This car also has a working BCM from the monte carlo. Including the functions for the door locks , dome light, auto headlights, switchs, etc. Push to start uses a transponder key like the new cars , proximity sensing for auto unlock as you get close to the car. Amazing system.
