    The outer roof skin had rusted so badly that you could virtually pass your hand between the inner & outer skins. The rust was cut out totally, rust treated & then new metal formed & tacked into place. Once happy that it all fitted correctly, it was continuously seam welded. There was zero distortion as I stagger welded it . but it took forever to do








    The formed metal being tacked in place








    The roof fully seam welded



    Coat of zinc primer to protect it until the roof was ready for epoxy primer

    Thanks for the compliments, to be honest, it's looking fairly good, but it's built to be a driver, not a show car. I'm sure that there are cars out there that will have far more of a wow factor than mine will. I've deliberately "down played" the look of the car to a point where it should just look like a nice original car with a set of alloys". A real wolf in sheeps clothing

    Shortly I'll be posting up pics of some of the lead loading that was done to the body, so that might interest some of you, Cheers....Nige

    Nige I know we haven't got that far yet but would be interested in the engine spec and more on the suspension mods if you are willing?
    I envy your bodywork skills.I built a 67 at one time but luckily they weren't quite as rusty then!

    it's running a stock Evinrude

    Lets just say it's a small block (not a 350 ) with an Eagle crank & 6" rods. The fuelie heads have Traco (Tra-co engineering) stamped on them (bit of research for all you budding anoraks out there to do ) & have been extensively re worked, it runs KB pistons with an actual 11.5-1 compression with quench, sealed gap rings, roller rockers, a "no name" circle track cam as specified by the guy that came 3rd in the Engine Masters Challenge last year (he's a cam specialist & grinds cams to spec), the sump's been modified a bit so's we don't lose pressure in corners, 1 3/4" headers into a 3" X pipe system with home built stainless race mufflers, ali flywheel backed by a Muncie 4 speed box.



    Oh, it's got one of these:-



    it's a crossram with twin 600 dbl pumpers, as per the Trans Am cars back in the day.

    That's the basics of what it's running Steve, but if you want to know the whole truth give me a PM. cheers....Nige

    Thanks for the compliment, but it's taken me just over 35 years to get the hang of this bodywork malarky , cheers....Nige

    I remembered the crossram from another thread and sadly I'm old enough to remember Traco! I won't pm as it would be nice to keep it under wraps...
    Excellent.
