redid corners of number plate recess (top center one) smaller to allow deeper recess and better accomodation of plate light
rear infills now glued in place and corners filled
what a time consuming process this has been.
currently working on top of deck
Take a look at post 99, you will notice what look to me like a hidden A pillar (there "has" to be one so that you can get in!) There does seem to be little photographic evidence of the car with doors open, so it would be good to see some just to be sure of where the shut lines actually are. Maybe Des could elaborate?
in the plan view of this pic the "shut line" follows the heavy line from front of door opening up,over and curves around just like the 40 does only all glass on outside
no like the 40 the windows don't open, a/c or a good air flow is a definite requirement
wipers will be flexible/sprung as for most curved screens
ford conveniently left them out of the concept
don't expect to need the wipers much with slope of the screen, but yes legal necessity.
some more progress
rear wheel arches built up depth wise and curve finished prior to edge being radiused and infill being added.
tail lights were placed in holes and puttied over for contour
one has been shaped and cut out, other almost finished and ready to be cut out.
engine bay sides straightened up
front tops of guards have been fitted to arch
front lower edges are yet to be matched to arch or "triangles" and lower edge to sill yet to be matched
lines on top are starting to straighten up nicely
