I decided to hold down the hatch with the original latches I had. I made some brackets for the lower stud and cut out the top for the latchs.

Before I glass the hatch pieces together I welded a lip on the side for the wing to bolt to. Im figuring this wing is going to put some stress on the body and should be attached well

Time to put this hatch together Making a few filler pieces for the rear trailing edge. The idea is that after this whole thing is glassed together it will be able to slide off the frame for any type of repair or access.



Just gluing these pieces together with quick glue to glass over later





Glassed

Feels great to be back in the swing here everybody !! NEILS88.......RCR.......LORNESGT......ITALGT......and so much more of the Fiero builders and modders ......I feel that we pull from each other and ideas are born and raised within our builds. In my eyes we are all leaders and followers in the hobby and it just keeps getting the bar raised every time. Just wish somehow the knowledge of the tips and tricks could be easier to access. LORNESGT.......looking forward to you getting your widebody !! And the build continues......


The bottom of the wing gets aluminum angles to attach to the metal frame of the hatch. It will be bolted for strength. I bonded them for now but they will be glassed as well





alittle filling in

I used the front hinges for this. Just cut them up a bit and bolted them onto the lower frame I already made.

Probably asked before but how many layers of fiberglass does it take to have enough strength in the parts? What type of Fiberglas is best?

Great stuff, Bozzie. Same question as Lorne asked above ^^^.

Also, are you going to leave the rear portion of the fender bottom attached to the hood, or cut it off at the belt line? My thought (and this is something I thought about on mine) is that that little extra part hanging down gets in the way of accessing the front, unless you do pull the whole thing off.

Just my penny and a half.

LornesGT and RCR, Usually I use 1.5oz matting. I just started using Fiber Glast Resin. It seams much thinner than other brands and MUCH easier to break down the matting for a easier soak thru. I Vary thickness, usually 2 3 or 4 layers of matting , and rolling out the excess Resin with a ribbed roller. Its the Matt that provides the strength once saturated, so rolling out the excess Resin is important for a good bond and thin strong results. I just picked up a Shredder and a 50lb spool of "hairs" so as to make curves and uneven surfaces much easier to build up. Hope that helps
