yeah, its getting there. i have more sanding to do on the front end then i'll prime and paint it. the roof is just gonna go primered for a while cause it has a lot of body work to be done to it.
its really just piddly stuff that needs to be done to get it driving. hopefully i can get it done in time to take it to the Foddrill show.

its really not too hard. you just need a big enough sheet of aluminum to make both sides. some fenders you'll see will make the mounts all in one piece with the aluminum but some of those line up poorly. i made separate pieces of aluminum and bent them so they would be flat to the fender and flat to the original fender mounts.
i cut mine with a band-saw. so in some way or another you need to be able to cut the aluminum.
if you mount them the way i did, make your mounts and drill the holes then bolt them on. then lay your fender piece on top, mark the holes on the fender, drill them and bolt it on. you should have a pretty decent looking fender.

if you look my driver fender doesn't line up perfectly near the back. my passenger one is much better since i did that one after some experience.

if you'd like more pictures let me know.

UPDATE:

so the other day I purchased about 5 yards worth of fabric (4 grey, 1 blue) so that I could reapholster my stock rear seat and redo my door and quarter panels. The fabric I got actually exactly matches the fabric in my PRP suspension seats that are going in the front.

this is how the seat turned out:


I will take pictures once its in the car.

I also started on my rear bumper/engine cage. I will take pictures of it tomorrow after its finished.

here's my engine cage. this is just the basic concept is done. now I just have to make tabs for certain things (oil cooler, oil filter, lights, license plate, etc.)









its all .090 wall 1 1/2" tubing except for two pieces and the hoop I'm building which will hold the oil cooler.

its actually an HEI distributor out of a Chevy Vega. Its some different stuff. Its actually the same distributor we're running in the vw buggy. It just gives more reliable spark and is a lot better with the turbo. You'd have to talk to my dad more about it, that's basically all i know. I just know it looks good. haha

yes. it has tabs at each mounting point to the car. The two to the fire wall for the main tube is actually just a big square plate with four bolts and a plate on the other side (future roll cage point) And the other four spots are just 1.5 inch by 3 inch by quarter pieces of flat steel with the pipe welded at one end and a hole for a bolt at the other end.

UPDATE 10/5/08:

I got my tail lights mounted today.
this is what they look like:


I also did a lot of hooking up wires to the right locations. I filled the motor full of oil and put a battery in to try and start it.

It started, has oil pressure, (the dummy light works and shuts off) it seems like its running fine, and all of a sudden, oil's going everywhere! it ended up blowing the rubber gasket out of the oil filter. So now we need to put a pressure regulator on it. It made a nice mess too. But atleast I got to hear it run. Smile
