    the solution to the wide wheels.
    widen the car to suit.this also puts it back into proportion with the stretch.
    make some cuts




    weld in an infill strip.
    these are 2" wide so the cars 4" wider than stock

    a bit of work went into the front screen area.
    decided to keep full size opening as that saves having to cut down a screen at a later date.
    while it was like this the screen was raked back a bit to keep it as low as possible without looking to radical.
    also incoporated a roll over loop into the screen surround.couldnt get normal roll cage size cfs in so went down a size but upped the wall thickness to compensate.
    front veiw



    side veiw showing the rake



    showing how much the roll loop had to curve and infilling the front panels



    filling in the inside gaps

    Hope you are doing well, saying housebound always conjures up images of hospitals etc.
    IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM MATE.

    started on the inner seal plates next.
    these had to be fairly strong due to no roof and having to take the body on and off


    fitted



    pic shows how the different plates line up with the body lines.ones for the outer lip and the top one lines up for the step plate



    new foot plate welded in










    fill panel things

    at this point decided to attempt the front again.
    made the front quarters from scratch this time
    much happier with the results





    and the final bit of widening across the front
