Bob

A lot of great threads here and abroad have been trashed by Photobucket. Sure glad you're not using them, Boz.

Just trying to get the fender to flow right. Also wanted to get rid of the lower inlet on the front side of the bumper. The line of the lowered hood vent on the drivers side was off so I added some more glass here and also on the passenger lower corner where I made the bumper longer. Put some duraglass on the drivers side rear front fender.

Now that the rear is ruffed out pretty good, I FINALLY bonded the wing to it. Added a few layers of glass to the rear edge of the hatch....mostly because when I sanded it flush to the top of the wing I took TO much off :P

Here we go for the like 9th time on glassing the fender. I got the shape rounded like I wanted, and instead of glassing on the outside, which adds material, and changes the lines.....I taped the outside and glassed the inside to it. I taped it in 2 directions to give it some curves, being sturdy enough to hold the shape. It really worked out well as you can see. Also the lower scoup is now gone. Think this is where I want it to be Having the car inside, you really cant step far away from it enough to get the flow of the lines, and where it looks heavy or to curved or straight. Taking it outside and just ....well, pulling up a chair and grilling it into my head makes the difference. I'll do this a few times as I go along , hopefully catching areas before I put to much time into it.

Having bought some duraglass and a bunch of sanding pads and longboard strips I commence operation smooth Im starting with the hood and fenders because this is really the worst of it. This Is a large piece of the car and theres lots to get right. The rest will be a cakewalk compared to this. Ive been building the car...frame first and then the body 1 piece at a time ....so much time and effort into it, that it was so hard to see getting to this stage. Feels like im finally rounding 3rd base

Moving around to the door areas where the rear quarters come in. When you opened the door it was not a well finished area. So I taped the flow to the door jamb and will glass this in. This will also be a way to mount the quarter to the B pillar.

You're doing some beautiful work there, Boz. Congrats on getting to the "fill" phase. I've been real tempted to start, but I'm holding back until all of the little things are done.

Can't wait to see it smoothed out and in primer.

Very Nice work. Smoothing & leveling all the bodywork before paint will be quite the task. Keep up the good work.
