Still working out the design. I extended the rear fender crown so it wraps down the tail panel and pre fit the lemans gas cap. Ray

That thing looks a lot better than any Corvette body. I LIKE it a lot.

Are you using foil or aluminum tape for mocking up purposes?

Yes i use the duct tape for mock up, none of the fender panels on the car now will be used for final finish. The taillights i think will be the small round Lucas like on early 100-4's. WAY out of my comfort zone! Ray

Working out where the door skins will start and stop. Putting on a couple of keeper panels i hope like the rocker and lower front panel. Deigning the dash also. I will ditch the vette wheel............ Ray

Still here! Dash# 2 mock up. I think one more to go just to tweak it a bit.
The Right side of the car is close to the look now making rough test panels. Next i can spin the car around and make real panels for the Left side, then spin it around again and make better panels for the right. Starting to test fit tailights next. Thinking hurts!

Default A little update

Well i'm on dash #4.. I think it flows better with my new steering wheel/dash pod and helmet fairing from the back side. Moved the front nose out and down a couple inches to help the curve of the fender top and give the car some lenght. Mocking up the split in the tilt front end and latch placement. Still just a buck. I also bought a midrise lift to make my life easier.....................well worth it!!!!! Ray
