Here is the basic shape of the flare on the body. A mirror image will be made for the other side, then glued / blended...

Measure twice, cut once! Sounds like good times

I'm glad you like them, Hyde. I agree, I think they are just right. That was important to get "right" for the overall look. Really happy with how it's coming together.

Ran into an issue with these big tires on the front. Have to go with spats on the front (which I am happy about). The tire is tipped out a fair amount with positive camber so once it is aligned I think we'll be in good shape.

This will be the world's first split spat to account for the flip front. Such a cool project and Bruce's work is looking stellar!

I managed to procure a set of NOS Radium-tipped switches. Very happy...

Nice score! Like the panel too. Did you craft that?
