  1. @Jboogsthethug metal work is just a hobby, couple times a month ill plug away if work isnt to busy. Im a scaffolder by trade. and thanks to the other guys for the words of encouragement
  2. Great job, everything is looking really good.
  3. Been practicing my metal finishing before i redo a couple more body panels. Below isnt any specific piece, just a practice panel 1) Pattern, 1/2 of the piece 2) 1/2 section roughed in 3) 1/2 section Wheeled. other section is a mirror image. 4) both 1/2 sections welded together. then finished 5) welded seam gets polished. First picture below has the weld running down the middle of the piece. Second photo is showing its overall profile. and with that I think ill be redoing the hood and from valance out of aluminum.
  4. From what I've seen in the past this seems to be an ongoing problem with them.
  5. @Bartman is it a spring and bag combo or strictly just bags?
  6. Been waiting on some fuel lines and wiring so I started plugging away on an eletrical panel inside the car as well as some asthetic pieces for the door cards and the spare tire cover.
  7. Front lower valance is mocked up. Forgot to take a picture of it on the car, still need to trim the section for the lights. I'm happy with how smooth everything came out.
  8. Finally made the driver side floor and seat mount. Rails were picked up at the local junkyard and modified. Seat is in.
  9. great progress, how are you mounting your new lights?
  10. great progress, really enjoy following this build. How much longer is the Gnose front end from the orginal?
  11. I probably should have posted the process but hes a quick break down. Dont know if this is the correct way of doing this but it seems to work for me. 1 -Identify the area and take measurements so it can be similar to the other side. 2 -mark out your design, try to plan out the steps so you arent remaking a panel because you put an indent on the wrong side. 3 -put the design into the panel using whatever tools you have a your disposal (hammer & dolly, bead roller, resip hammer, etc) 4 -remember you didnt account for the stretching that was going to take place and now you have to hammer and dolly your panel straight again. Some of this hammer and dolly work could have been eliminated if I calculated prestretch required 5 -using your patch panel as a template, scribe around the edges and begin cutting. I try to leave 0.125" from the scribe line and finish it with snips 6 -tack the edges 7 -begin welding. I like to use tig for this and I try to run a bead without stopping. It warps alot. 8 -hammer and dolly or use a planishing hammer to flatten out the welds, go over the entire welded area with a wide faced hammer/ slapper and try to finish the panel as best as you can.
  12. found an audi at the scrap yard that had most of its fuel door latch intact. Latch system looks . Modified it abit but managed to get opening and closing. Still need to clean up the filler area, gap and reinforce the fuel door.
