Tonneau is from SAI off CSX7000 series......Clinch and pins from SNG Barratt, self installed

Added windscreen today, thanks to Dennis O (World famous surfer) and Joe. More hands were needed to avoid cracking.......

Fit the windscreen......



Next I will start on the rear flares final position..... Get out the grinder.....

Thanks all!

Starting final placement of rear flares.
For starters the body is a pull off an original early car, therefore not symetrical. The idea is to place both LeMans, Joseph flares, farely symetrical so it looks right going down the road. Also they need to be centered or offset to the rear a bit. That said I started with the right side of the car.

Step 1: Remove the slabside drops so new flares can be added. This step is a one way operation so be sure it has been measured correctly.


Step 2: Add flares and use sheet metal screws to hold in place. Prepare to scribe a line along outside of combining lip so it can be fret into position after removal. This again is critical step and measuremnt should be precise.


Phew.......Continued page 25
