    Maserati A6 GCS Body Buck

    Hi Guys. Here is something that I thought some guys may find interesting.
    On this forum I am busy building a replica of the Ferrari 250 Testarossa. I designed the body and made the body buck and have almost finished the body. Well from that thread I have been contacted by a few guys asking if I could build a body buck for their "dream car" and then they can build the body off it. I have got the go ahead and been paid (important) to make this Maserati buck and the customer has got a very skilled bloke over here in Cape Town to build the body off the body buck in Aluminium.
    It will take a while for me to do the buck as it is something I can only work on during the evenings and at home on the weekends.
    The customer is also from my city so I will be assembling and finishing the buck if it was for someone in a different city or country I would preassemble it and then flat pack it for shipping.
    This is what the original car looks like and worth a fortune!

    Here is an image of the 3D drawing of the car that I finished and using for designing the buck. From this image I have given the customer the critical dimensions. He is at the moment having a chassis made.

    Some pictures of the buck designs. It will have many parts so each part will be numbered when they are machined and it is all designed to clip together so no tape measure will be needed to assemble only a nail gun and glue. Hopefully

    Yesterday I cut the first sheet of parts. I think it will take about 10 sheets.

    This project has crawled along slowly this week. Mainly because the CNC router is flat out with the work its meant to be busy on and no time to squeeze my "private" job on as my operator calls it. But I have managed to cut a few more boards up.
    Here is a rib that fits just behind the seats position.




    The small parts I have taken home so far as they fit in my car.
    The big parts I am collecting at work and will bring home to build when they are all cut.
    Here are some of the small parts.

    Thanks for your comments guys.

    Still cutting parts. Slowly squeezing the boards in between my normal work. Got to finish cutting the boards then I will get assembling.




    Small parts pile is growing at home. I have cut about 7 boards and 7 to go!!

    Superb! Not having any knowledge of cnc routers, I wonder how long did it take you to plot out/program all the shapes?
    If it don't fit, make it adjustable!!!
