Finally got the hole closed for the lock in the trunk! And I’m playing around with an idea with a new attachment for the racing mirrors to make it look different and little more modern, what does people think about that? It can be a little hard to see from the pictures :D

Painting a car, interior or exterior is like painting a house. 95% prep, 5% painting.

Is the objective of the mirror mount to move them out to make them more useful?
Yes that was my idea, they are not much useful how they are in the original position. And then I just want to make the mount look better than then one it came with. I hope to make it possible to install the mirror from the inside so no screws are visible from the outside :D

A little bit of progress. Small steps, but just getting a little done is meaning a lot to me. Got startet on the metal pieces that will be on each side of the windshield to get rid

of the mouldings around it and to raise the windshield so it will be flush with the body. Cant wait to get this done. I used this piece of tool, first time I ever used it, what a nice piece of tool to shape the metal, love it :D

I am Currently restomoding a 71 Fastback. I designed a wide-body kit for the rear of the car and a more aggressive front nose. The back of the car is 6 inches wider than stock to accommodate the 315 on 12 inch rims.
Smart move buddy. Always thought the pillar was way too narrow. Nice glass fit.

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?

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. :)

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 😁

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 😁

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 😁
