still a very interesting thread tho
Why don't those of you who have followed the whole thread and have some drawing skills, use you imagination and come up with some sketches of the potential finished look. You never know you could be inspirational to the final shape. Answers on a postcard. No prizes, just for fun. That is as long as Andy doesn't mind? I know I would like to see some ideas, and perhaps Andy could let us know the nearest to his vision.
looking good Andy :tup:
Well the next job was to flange the hatch to match the roof flange in one plane. The hatch had to be shaped (cut) in the opposite direction from the original panel to make it match up. A “T” seal will be fitted between the two panels and one side will be bonded to the roof and the other will overlap onto the hatch. Now I just need to match up the roof and the hatch in the other plane which you can see from the last picture requires a bit of design/tin work to make a small rear spoiler. Andy
I would imagine designing and building a car in your mind before laying the material on must be mind blowing but you seem to be doing it with ease.
Well done that man
Can't you go through the sills and under the floor.
Or through the front windscreen scuttle and down the gearbox tunnel.
Or the door looks wide enough, take one through the doors.
Or a reverse cowl over the back window through the rear bulk head.
Or a rear quarter light scoop through to the diff.
Sorry got a bit carried away.
Have a look at the functional rear brake cooling scoops on the '67 Shelby GT.
Should be just the thing for your application and easy to fabricate in metal, or available over the counter as repros of the original fibreglass.
A tip for planning out body shape is masking tape - fold a wire up to form your edge and run the lines of tape to the body to build up a shape - if that makes sense? Quick & easy to get an idea of how it might look.
bit like this;
which made this;
Jeff I would normally go for option one “through the sills and under the floor” but the scoop has two functions, cover the roll bar and direct cool air to the brakes. The top part of the scoop will be non-functional but the lower part will. I have tried to show this in the pictures, a bit like a Lamborghini Miura setup.
