Default Them are some cute little buggers!

I know I said "cute" and men don't usually say that. (I learned it from BD) Seriously, those are the ticket right there. I am worried though that this frame will not be worthy of the AWSOME work Dremelit has already done. I am going to have to step it up a bit. I think those little hex bolts will find a place on the frame as well. Man...I am so excited. Stu...SLOW DOWN....you are putting alot of preasure on me. I have been meaning to ask you the trick to making the front nose taper like that. Heat gun? What ever you did it looks amazing!

Troy, I hate to sound like a caveman, but once you cut off the hood, it's fairly easy to just yank the fenders in. No heat, no trick, just brute force.

Now we're into the sticky, gooey bit.

I'll slow down now

Default Great Work!!!

So is this where it gets messy and your wife makes you dust the whole house? I meant to ask you if the "shaker" thing is a very good idea with the extended fenders? I won't be heart broken if we need to "86" the idea. I'm still trying to get some creativity into the frame rails. They are straight and boring. Unlike that body you are brewing up. That thing is unreal or should I say very real. You da man

The shaker will be fine. The fenders are CA'd, epoxied, and now bondo'd onto the body. I've already dropped it twice, so I'm sure it'll handle a little shimmy-shimmy

BD: say nothing about shimmy-shimmy

TJ, the pink foam is from Home Depot, comes in 4x8x2-inch panels (Foamula R 150) and I cut it with a knife, sand it down smooth, and hit it with 15-minute epoxy to protect it from the corrosive effects of the bondo. I'm using bondo rather than more epoxy on this one because it'll give a better finish, and I've got about 3 pounds of it

Beautiful wheels, Troy
