As always .. thank YOU Bob. It gets CRAZY when you get on a roll and Hrs just pass on by like nothing ! One reason I don't have a clock in the shop.....I guess why in a casino there is no windows to the outside....so you never can tell how long your there. I truly appreciate your input

Back to the grind here. ALOT of sanding here. just sanding and sanding and well.....filling and sanding ! Just going from the left to the right side and checking for symmetry. This is where time stands still as hrs of work doesn't look like much. I'll be happy when this part is done and I can finally get to smoothing it out....which goes MUCH faster

Here the side scoop was about a 3/8 " higher on the passenger side, so I cut it and moved it down. I'll have to fix the underside of this scoop as well later....as I wanted it curved under and I was alittle off on this side.

The hood is up for some major changes. I've been concentrating on the rear so much lately that while things dry there im moving onto the front. This way I can go back and forth between resin timing and filler timing i'll always be moving forward Here it is as she stands. The first mod is dropping the center of the hood about a 1" and a Half.

Here its cut. BUT.... I had to trim the metal up by the cowl area a bit to get it to drop that much. THEN...... the front firewall where the headlights mount was sitting about a 1" to high and bulging the hood there. SO..... as with all the mods one things leads to another and a bunch trimming was made to make this work. And trimming the front area...well....the brake vacuum canister was there so I had to move that !! Freakin never ends !!!

Inbetween I made some box's here out of MDF for the NEXT Mod I glassed these over and let it sit overnight.....popped it out and Here you can see my version of a Koenig version headlight bucket. I'll make another and find a way to make it fit the car.....gonna be tight. I made these buckets about as small height and width wise as I could. Going to be a lot of cutting later for sure. More to come !

Now, I can't imagine you're out of room, so how are you going to integrate the GT decklid into the roof?

Clearly Bozzie is trying out his new roof spoiler. May need to straighten that up a bit though....

Looking awesome Bozzie!

Bob.......ya know I KNEW I was gonna get some slack on that decklid ! I took the pic and thought to myself....YUUUUPPPP I did think about what Neil said and making it a sprint car with a monster upper spoiler but that only lasted a second. Delorean, its my pleaser keeping this up to date, any input is always appreciated. Neil, your modern marvel with all your ingenuities is downright off the chart ! I sometimes look at what your doing like WHAT ?!!?! I must be slackin !

SO ....back to the buckets Im doing dual Square lights like the Koenig edition so I cut the opening for the lights. This is a flat panel they will mount to but i'll trim the lights later to give it a stagger ....more on this later.

Buckets ........

Popped the lights for effect. These have a halo ring around them that lights up white. Not sure if it will look cheesy so i'll have to try and see.

Here is the trimmed area. Theres a lot in the way. Wiring, metal, etc. Have to cut this all out slowly as to make sure I keep as much as I can. The buckets need to be level so I need to move them back and down until so.

Sometimes things just work out for some reason, more often not thou.. LOL. But here I cut the forward radiator support right up to the frame rail. It seams like these buckets are going to fit with no room to spare width wise. Some wire rerouting to come. Im very happy these are going to fit, thou I wasn't taking no for a answer !!

I love the new lights! That is going to look so much better than the stock positioning. Are you going to build in an adjustment system to allow you to easily align the lights?

Some UPDATES Thanks Mark, as I hope your still keeping going on your car....seams SO close !!!! Neils......I was thinking ALOT about the headlights. And thou it might sound cheesy , as I have built the housing at a 90degree to the ground as the stance the car sits at , Im just thinking of just glueing the housings in. I'll light them up and set them in the housing where I want them. I really don't think i'll ever care to adjust them again. Thinking that once there set, like any new car, that's pretty much it Plus, it saves quite a bit of work more concentrated elsewhere.

Glassing the sides of the hood here. I had to place a brick on the forward edge because it was bulging out with the lack of support. Trying to keep it as non warped as possible as it comes back together, might've cut alittle to much without putting things back together !

Made a small panel out of 2 layers of glass to fill in the opening on the hood. I'll glass these in with another 2 layers. They overlap the headlight bucket by about a inch therefore hiding the top of the headlight housings. Koenig edition cars came with plexi covers over this area and not. Im not doing covers as these will be black in contrast to the car

Cleaning up the passenger side area here. You can see about a 3/4" flat area on the outside of the bucket before the fender. I will taper this down and around the front fender section. Since I made the fenders ive never really been happy with the front corners. Ive done these over a few times already and well.......hopefully one more time will do it as I refine it further.

A few more things to do on the list are to get rid of those lower vents in the bumper sides, clean up the door jambs and finally get down to smoothing and filling. More to come !!!
