Will .5mm styrene sheets be good to use or do you think it may be too thin? I’m hoping that it will capture the drip rail details. I have about 4 sheets that are 12”x12” that I will send together with the top... it’s the same size I used for the original top, but I shaped that by hand under hot water, which is why it needed so much work ! Lol...
Pretty thick...I [email protected] would require high heat.
I'm quessing at that though.
I have lot's of .035
I can double up on the pulls like I did on the Willy's pickup.
Works the charm and it should pick up the drip rail details nicely still.
Plus super doooper strong being layers.

I'm not fluent in MM.
But it looks to be about the same thickness as the .035
Still should work.

Actually .5mm works out to about 0.020”.

Once it can retain the shape, the inner ribs and side panels should keep it sturdy enough I think!
Will post it out next week after the holidays if that’s okay with you!

Awesome.
Sounds like a plan.
Ive plenty of different size material to play with..clear up to a 1/4 inch.
Sucks to cut..don't use a band saw on it either
You'll be lucky to get your blade back in one piece after it melts and close rear cut.
Don't ask....heheheheee

Wow Preston your last updates are some serious updates! Nice job on the buck, and the engine looks just gorgeous inside that engine bay. What did you use to make the plug wires clips thingies? I mean the pieces keeping the wires cleanly organized.

You are detailing this at static cars level, total eye candy every time I look into the thread. And I completely agree with having a looksee at the seats again hahaha Keep at the awesome work buddy!

Hey thanks Fred! The plug wire looms (I think that’s what they are called ) are made from styrene, basically tubing glued together and then carefully cut open.

Another small ....lol

Didn’t get a whole lot of time in the last couple of days holiday season, last minute shopping etc...you know how that goes..

I did manage to complete the air cleaner tonight. Took a little while to figure out how I wanted it, but I think it worked out pretty nice... tomorrow I will get the ignition coil done and then I may stop working on the engine bay and start focusing on getting the interior set up...it may take a day or two before I actually start putting it together as I will have to figure out how I’m attaching the flooring to the chassis and then the seats etc to the flooring..... so more to come soon!

Any who, here’s a few pics of the air cleaner installed....watcha think?

I just can't get over how sweet that engine looks in there.

I have the bottom half of the Holley air cleaner if you want it. I used the top piece on mine.

I really need to get to work on my stock engine for the Blazer.

Hey thanks Willezcr8 !
I will pass on the bottom half of the air cleaner. I needed to make it custom as space is really limited in order to get the hood to close properly. I had to take a millimeter off the height of the mesh in order to for it to close...lol.
Hoping to be able to get some more done on it today...will see how that goes!

Have you started the body as yet? I did make the bits for the hood hinges for it, but still need to drill them and get the pair assembled. I also still have that tiny spring for the carby for you...!

Not yet but I'm thinking...soon. Just working out a few things on the chassis before I start laying out the floor. Also, I want to try vacu-forming the side panels and my former isn't quite ready.
