    Cheers andycamaro, F1 on the road interesting. I am hoping to cover the chassis in some nice looking body if not Mad Max!

    Just read through all 13 pages. Which was a feat in itself as my laptop crashes every 30 mins, but had to keep reading.

    I wish I had half your imagination, building from scratch is truly one of the bravest (daftest) ideas ever, especially without a body style in mind.

    Modern day Darryl Starbird or Barris, only better, they tended to use existing cars & build modded bodies.

    Looking forward to your next posts

    Door seal

    Now the bulkhead is finished I needed to join the door seal edges from my chassis to the seal edge of the Jaguar roof. This required reshaping a couple of bits of 20x20x3 angle.

    What I cant work out is how you are building the car from the inside out. How do you know where the door seals need to be or where the hinge axis should be? etc?
    You are either very brave/hopeful or you do have a good idea of the finished result?

    Not having a dig, just can't see quite how you can build a car this way.

    Sorry but it’s so logical to me I have pictures in my head but no plan, go with the flow and change when needed. I have no fix body to work too and that’s the beauty of it you need to free you mind and not be fix on any set methods.
