Hello ALL and thanks for the bumps and Views ! After alittle hiatus , mostly from working on customers cars im getting back to Alchemy. Lots of plans and changes, thoughts and dreams of this project. Hears where we continue with the build
Because I changed some of the lines of the body the lower intake no longer fit right., so making another one to fit. Cant tell how many times ive made this part in all different shapes....hope this is the LAST one for this car
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
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
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.
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
