Hi and thanks again for the positive feedback 

 

More work on the bottom half of the hood , got one unit of glass on it and a skim of Rage Gold filler .

Still more to add the this part , the sides where it meets the fenders and the top at the windscreen , I would like ti to hide the wipers .

Sorry these are now out of order , I couldn't find these , I have a computer in the office at home and one at the shop and  three cameras and a phone , busy life its hard to find time to sort them out into folders .

I have with out a doubt spent 2 months all together measuring and remeasuring this car its has so many compound curves .

So I rack my brain trying to figure ways to keep this thing on track , every change to the body complicates that .

Ok got some stuff done on the car , crazy week , my wife is having a knee replacement tomorrow , so been super busy getting thing ready for her recovery .

So I think I mentioned the way I will be attaching the rear clamshell .

Originally I was going to use the original hatch hinges , but thought that would be too difficult to access .

Now I am going to use the rear strut mounting holes , and would like to disguise them by creating a foe vent .

Seems like everyone lost interest ............

 

Well been busy looking after my wife , probably a couple more days before I get to my other shop , I have been doing some stuff for the build at my home shop on the milling machine making a mold out of aluminum for the front turn signals .

 

Here is the last pic's of the vent foamed and roughed in

Hi everyone
I am building a complete new body for my Nissan 350 Z
I have and been at it for almost two years and can finally see some light at the end of the tunnel .

Getting started I built a dust collection system that spins 360 degrees because as we all know fiberglass dust is no fun , next was to build some wooden wheels to simulate the new wide ones to help with clearances and fender lips . the rear hatch and window is deleted and replaced with a smaller trunk lid .

Thanks Sim for the kind words  

Sounds like you have some nice toys  !!

We had another winter friggin storm here ,Thursday wind and power outages and then over a foot of snow at the shop , started on Friday afternoon , the road in is .5 of a kilometre long , so there is no way to shovel it , also narrow with lots of bush so no place for the snow to be plowed , if you could find someone to do it !! 

here are the last pics I took .

Hi guys & gals
Been a while , must be getting old almost forgot how to post stuff on here lol .
I have missed some time from the car ( obliviously ) you know the usual stuff in the forest on an Island , power outages from wind storms and freak snow storms , life etc .
So I have been plugging away at the rear deck lid fake vents and prepping the roof scoop mounting . the roof will have a small foam frame that will be part of the roof to position and fasten the scoop . 

I will try to post more this weekend 

Cheers

Hi

I finally got my turn signals , they are really cool , they have low beam  ( DLR ) day time lights , high beam DLR and Amber sequential signals , I ordered a few sets and the shipping company lost them !!!! 

Had to order again .......

So I will be working on there spot in the front Dam , this should be a right pain to make also ... but worth the effort .

 

They are aftermarket up grade for the new Honda Civic Type R

Hi 

I am back with an update , I have been working on a few things .

The roof scoop frame that will be the mounting point and will be part of the roof .

This was a tricky piece to make ......like everything else was easy lol .

The part that covers the top of the windscreen will be made with the whole roof and cut off after , so the roof scoop frame will need to be cut also , and the nose of the frame will be attached to the part that goes over the glass , for easy removal for windscreen replacement .
