Exposed's 1jz Build

Recommended Posts

  • 1 month later...

Work has slowed down abit so currently have my sundays back! Got started on the front fender. Did a quick mock up with tape and installed my new turn signal then started laying out some lines on some sheet metal. The plan is to try to have the front fender blend back into the orginal fender and the door, fingers crossed i dont have the remake this peice a whole bunch of times. I ended up notching out the one sections for the turn signal and folding the metal back.

After taking another look at it im not to sure I like the cut out section. Might decide to remake it and go for something that feels more fluid.

Thoughts? opinions?

Okay now I see what your going after. I have come up with a fender vent option for my build that I'm still on the fence about. I had bought a set of used FD3s RX7 fender vents and had them blended into the front Ztrix fiberglass subtle Z fenders. Still trying to get visually used to them, but ultimately want to vent hot under hood air as much as possible.

Filler panel for the driver side and remade a wider skin for the rocker panel.





Drilled out a couple holes and welded a nut at the front and back of the rocker panel to hold down the new skin. Pretty happy with how its turning out, need to start on the door soon.
