More Front End Work Completed

100_0150I have been working on sealing up all the holes that were cut in the car as I built the new frame. I tried working around the front struts but they were in the way so I took the last of the stuff off the front end. The only thing left on the front is the steering rack and I will replace it with a better one since this one has some slack in it. I also cut the lip off the firewall. It used to be a structural part but now it is just in the way of mounting the ignition. I also have to seal the hole in the cowl where the car used to get fresh air for the heater. I will not be able to use it anymore with the new heater so it will be easy to just seal it up.

As soon as I have the front end holes sealed up I will start on the floor and gas tank mount. Once those are done it is time to start assembling the car and maybe I will actually get to take it for a ride. Either way the car is actually starting to look like it might get done pretty much like I hoped it would be. I just have to keep working on it and get it on the road as soon as possible.

  1. wondered how you were going to tie in those
    strut towers? nicely done….
    with all this work you should REALLY show
    it all off with a flip front end, yea i know
    i’m harping and its your car, but folks should
    be able to see whats been done to clean and lighten things up. to get it to clear the doors as it would flip forward take a look at an 80’s model buick
    park ave., a simple but unique solution to pull it
    forward and gain clearence as the front end rolls under. as always keep folks posted, one hell of a project.
