  1. Found these parts on a car graveyard today. It’s a hoodlock mechanism from a european Ford that are cable release and also a hood release actually from a Ford Ranger. The smart thing about the release is that it’s just placed under the dashboard, so it’s easy to install! Cant wait to get it installed and make it work! Then I can remove that big original release and make more room for the grille I want to make 😁
  2. Could’nt find the door strikers, so I just made them by my self so I can start on adjusting the door and the gaps. I made it from a pipe, a bolt and welded those two together and grinded it to this result. I just love to make it by my self, theres just something about it 😁
  3. Playing with some brackets today. I’m going to use the flat hood because I like it more than the Ram Air actually. It makes the car look wider and not so tall if you ask me. But I got some hood pins from Ringbrothers that I’m going to install. I’m using the brackets for that that are normally for the Ram Air with hood locks, I’m just changing them a bit. I am not going to install the brackets in the original position because I have some lines on the hood (market with White) that I want to be in the middle of so it looks perfect in my uppinion. You can see in the picture what I mean and how it looks. Hav’nt done more because I want to line up the hood perfect before drilling any holes for the brackets 😁
  4. A little step further today. Got the hoodhinges sandblasted and got the hood installed. Soon I will be doing all the gaps around door, fenders and hood. When all that is matched and perfect I will continue with the front end and do some cool modifications .. 😁
  5. Got the front valance on today and got the car moved to the lift, it’s easier to work there when I’m fitting the panels. Got the car tied down just to get a feeling about how the stance will look like that I’m hoping to get. Will continue tomorrow with the hood and so 😁
  6. Thanks! Me too, and theres a lot more modifications on it’s way 😁
  7. Got the assembly for the headlights assembled today on the car and it fits perfect in both sides 😁💪
  8. I’m glad to hear that it did that! I really love how he likes to work with me, it means so much! Yes you are so right! 😁
  9. Haha yeah, but I’m not using that grille. I’m making my own from scratch and it will actually be a little deep, more than any of them. 😁 so I will have to see what I will do with everything. Do you mean the battery support? If so I will locate in right side beside the trunk panel so I can hide it after that with some panels to make the trunk look clean. I actually cut the panels away that holds that door. They was mistreatet by the last owner with big holes for speakers, I did’nt like that. I will fabricate something cool there instead and maybe not have the fold down seats but something a little different, but I have’nt decided yet what it is. thanks I will and you too 😁
  10. Thanks! It’s also candy for my eyes 😁 Yes everything will be hidden except for the wiper motor and that, cant really do anything to that without building a different system. Have been thinking about it but dont know what to use. Have been thinking of the Mercedes system with one arm. But I dont know yet. Maybe I will find a motor instead and just swap that with the old to make it work better and have more speeds to choose from 😁 I deffently get your point and I will agree with you that it would be a good idea. My dads are made the same way so I will have to go and look what he did and maybe do the same to mine. I have’nt really been thinking about yet how I will route the wires other than it will be on the outside of the enginebay. I am thinking about making some panels from the front grille and over the radiator to hide that. So everything can actually be hidden under that. 😁 But there are deffently some things to keep in mind before paint and a metal tube could be an option. I’m glad that you recommended that.. thanks 😁
  11. Done! If I should ask my self, I think that went out really good 😁💪
  12. A step further today with the project on the fender. So nice to make everything by my self, love it. And it fits pretty well 😁
  13. Next project is to build this attachment point for the fender and headlights assembly. The old one had to many dents and was just to bad so I cut that out. Got started on building a new one. Hope to make it look like the other side as shown in the picture, but most important is that it’s fits, not the look, but I will make it looks as good as possible 😁
  14. Got some of the assembly sandblasted, got some new parts also to install the headlights into. Now it just needs some primer and paint and then it can be installed.. 😁 Also got a little bit further with the plans for the Big Block engine project today, details will come soon 😁
  15. Created a little piece for the headlights assembly today together with my 7 years old son. He cleaned the plate before we shaped it, he hammered some of the edge and drilled some of the holes. Very funny and it looks allmost as the original 😁
  16. I got the corners made for some time ago for the flush windshield. I’m trying once again to move forward on this project. There has been a lot of ups and downs the last couple of years. But I’m glad that I allways have this project to fall right back on. Hope to get it moving a little bit forward now. The dream of me behind the wheel are really something that I hope soon can become a reality. :)
  17. Thanks buddy! I think it was an easy way to make the windshield flush instead of spending big dollars on custom glass. Me too and I really like that it is getting a little wider. Again thanks, cant wait to see it finished. Will continue tomorrow. I really wanted to cut of the drip rails and make them in a different way too, but it’s a problem here in Denmark to get them street legal sthat way as some of the strenght are placed there in unibody cars. I’ll try to make a cool drip rail moulding instead. Great to hear from you. How is your car coming along body?
  18. Removing the factory lead spots and got them welded up again, I need to do this so I can weld in the new pieces to make the frame around the windshield :D
  19. As for fender flares, you might want to look into this. They have finished flares, ready to weld on :D https://www.umshop-store.com/
