panteraHello
I have not posted here since 2008 when my first Pantera was done.
But now i have a new project.
This spring i got a Pantera from Sweden. some body shop had rust repaired and painted it in 1986, since then it has been stored with all parts in boxes. The work they have done on the car is very poor so i have to do it again!

Unfortunately, there are no Pantera parts vendors at the show.

ZF rebuilder Lloyd Butfoy (RBT Transmissions / High Performance Gear) will have a booth at the show. Booth #24613.

Ok thanks
If you don't mind a slight detour Larry Stock (Pantera Parts Connection) is in Carson City NV. Some years he attends SEMA, but not with a trade stand.

If you have specific parts needs you want to carry home with you maybe you can have them shipped to a Pantera owner in the Bay area for local pickup?

am going to USA in the end of next week for the Las Vegas Sema Show and to the San Francisco Tesla factory

If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area this Thursday, 10/27, come to the Pantera Club of Northern California (PCNC) meeting at 7:00pm at Holder's Country Inn (998 S. De Anza Blvd, San Jose, CA) and visit with other Pantera brethren.
I have been in contact with an car glass manufacturer about one piece side windows for the doors. And i can have them made in 5mm green hardened glass.
But the molds for them is pretty labor intense so the price for just
the glass to my car is very high,
When the molds is made it is cheap to make more of them!

So to the question is some one else interested in them?
I can handle the orders and ship them out to you!
They becomes cheaper the more that is done.

Then i or we can make an tread about how to get them to fit the doors and the parts needed.
I can also make it a kit similar to the system i chose for my car.

I am not in to this to make money, It is just to get use of the expensive molds!

Hi Simon - why this concerns ?


Because this guy produced for me the molds for car window's and stole my original windows.

Later he advertised whit those reproduced windows for a cheaper price than I have paid for.

Also I know a case that people have paid for window's but they are never delivered.

I think it would be best to leave a small triangle i the front for mirror and without it i believe its impossible to get the glass in.

I have been in contact again with the auto glass company about the prices depending on how many i order and they promised to let me know soon!

The company is a very big car glass manufacturer here in Finland they are very professional so no need to worry about that.

Mark i have not looked in to it so much yet but i think it would be a pretty easy project. when you look at the picture you see that the window opening mechanism is becoming almost centered on the new glass! so i see no need to change that.
But then there is the metal strip under the quarter glass that's need some trimming and the front guides. If i do this i take lot of photos and make a tread.

Its so early in this project so i have not thought about every small detail yet.
If someone have any good idea about this let us know

Its always someone that already have invented your good idea Smiler

I tried to contact Rick R but no answer?
I will let you all know when i know some more!20161208_124556_[500x375)

Awesome work all around. Love the 180 exhaust especially the exhaust opening out of he rear of car.

The rear fender flares are beautiful. You have done real talent there. Any chance you could post a few more photos and information on you build process of the flares/fenders?

It also appears from one of the photos that you may building new front fenders. Any photos of those?

Merry Christmas and once again - great work!

Devin

P.S. Your custom wheels also look great.
Thank you David .

Simon my business is collision repairs and painting on newer cars for insurance company's!
This is just a hobby and very relaxing when i can create my own form and shape.
When i am doing collision repairs it must look just like from factory if some one see that you have repaired it you have failed Smiler

That is why i will never do an original restoration, That is just like being at work for me Smiler
Hi Kjeld i talked to my contact at the glass factory last Thursday and he said that my door glasses should be ready for delivery this week.
I ordered only my glass for now! so i can be shore that they fit before i get them to any one else!
I made a steel model of it at Christmas that i sent to them. So lets see how it works out! I will let you now.

Hi Chris I made the grill new from steel ! I think that is easier than grinding!? and not so weak because the original part is some sort of cast metal and very fragile.
