Next is the new upper door cap. This hides the window when its in the down position. I hate the glass sticking out when its down. This piece give a little curve upward to the B pillar and then even with the window and then down and in at the rear frame. The "Hips" and Rear Fenders will attach to this later and mounts will be made to secure this to the frame.




Glassed to the door and then to the rear window frames going back. After I get much of this on and straight i'll cut the door opening straight down and things will line up nice

Almost broke my rule about cars, you're not allowed to cry until it's done.

It looked so amazing, and I don't believe I caught the reason you're extending the chassis?

Nevertheless, I LOVE what you're doing, and I wish I had the ability to customize my SE, but it's hard enough just getting it to run.

WTH is going on in here? I don't recall anything too crazy going on in here...oy. Yer nuts. The good kind of nuts!

Wow. You get it put together and a couple months later, you tear it apart again. The journey, not the destination?

Yeah, I hadn't looked in for a while, and BOOM the car is blown up... I thought I had issues with "mission creep", should this build be renamed Off the rails??? Stay tuned folks, a good thread just got great.

Hello all, and thanks for all the nice feedbacks ! Ive been kicking ass on this thing thru the winter and really trying to bring it road worthy soon.....kinda just like last year at this same time !!! Lots of changes , re changes, going backwords and now finally moving forward with a plan that works. It really isn't easy building something from pretty much scratch, and making it pleasing to the eye. My formula is off a Koenig 512 TR. As you've seen, the wheelbase has been stretched 7.25". For now as I keep moving onto this project I will start where I left off in November and try to bring this up to the present as quick as possible as there are ALOT of pics left to post.

The nose is to short for the look.



Took the widebody fender and extended it 4" as well as put a bend in it at the inlet area. This is the mock up stage







moving onto the roof I took the roof part and laid it down to extend it 4" with glass

Ok... when you do a archie widebody kit your supposed to glass the inside of the door to make it more rigid. I did this with 2 layers of matt. Now things are about to change. I ground down all that glass and alittle into the plastic of the door and weighing it down I made it flat instead of curved and reglassed it solid





Flat door !!

The rear inlet I made was based on the curved door so it really doesn't line up anymore.....this is the frustration of changing your mind a thousand times on a build





Trying on the fender again with the straight door and the bend inword

Moving onto the front fenders.








Here you can see the new add on lower door parts which will flow into the rear air cooler. The fenders have a overlap outward from the doors now with the flair




with the roof close enough I bonded it



Adding the final section to the fender

Well, the narrow nose does not cut it anymore being the rear is so much wider. The roundness which is very profound needs alittle chiseling So........sorry Amidia !!




Slice n Dice. The nose will now be 4" wider and 4" longer to the front.

I started with glassing in the 4" stretch to the bumper lengeth



I taped the outside and glassed the inside. Later i'll add a layer to the outside.





Then with a flat glass panel I bonded it to the nose extension which later i'll glass over and under





Here you can really see just how much the fender curves in

Holy Moses, there's more...

I totally understand what you're doing, but I probably could have hooked you up with the fellow that has the CK3 molds of the Koenig Competione.

Bob.... that's a REAL nice kit. I have pics of that kit on my computer and have referenced a build on mad mechanics. Super nice. Probably would've saved me a bunch of time for sure but I thought that kit was not in production anymore ?? Im alittle to far into this as you will see to get a kit but it is nice
