Very interesting to see what you're doing to the chassis/frame to handle the amazing new engine and transaxle. Any plans on to further stiffen the monocoque(add a roll cage...maybe I missed it)? Seems like with all that power and goodies to get it to the ground there will be chassis twist.


It gone be a roll cage an I will stiffen the monocoque.. Need to finish the rockers first then I will start bending tubes party
Some more work done this last week..

First I bolted on the door and adjusted it. The gaps was way off so I had to start thinking the best way to get the gaps I was aiming for.

Gap Door and front fender

Gap B-post and door



Front door/rocker


Started to cut the B-post to be able to drag it back so the gap open



When I was happy with the gap I started to spootweld



I cut the bad part of the rear lower fender. Not easy to get this rockpanel the way I want.



After about 30 hours of work it start looking the way I want Smiler
I feel for you on the body gaps, but it looks like you'll do a great job. Nice job on the rocker panels...was it hard to get the right curvature?

I fitted a full fiberglass body to a race car years ago that had huge uneven gaps. Fiberglass is way easier compared to the steel work you're doing...a lot itchier too.

The rocker panel is hard to fit when the rest is not original. Half to change the curv on the panel, it curv about 2 mm to much.
