    Very creative!.

    New door shapes and length look great. With the back end treatment (Inset Continental spare) it’s got a kind of Golden Sahara vibe going for it. I dig it!!

     

    Keep at it.

    Started on the B pillers and floor beams to put back the much needed strength……………….. 8345a5a36cd714358345a5a36ce3a8378345a5a36cf7940e

    Missed your last update…
    Very nice construction work of some pieces that you will never see… and you still made them look very attractive.

    Thanks Rik, first roof mock up just rested on, lots of cutting yet but think it might work………….. 8345a6b934d23e0e8345a6b934da5b198345a6b934e4533e8345a6b944a9f8aa

    After resting just the roof on and lots of measuring I decided to get myself a doner car and attempt! to use all of its hydraulics,workings and the screen surround, it may need to be a shorter in length but otherwise should be ok, IF it works out I,ll be able to have a fold away top and a removable hardtop, did I mention that this is all Quentins fault?   8345a750dd1126888345a750dd240f22

    What donor car is the roof and hydraulics coming from?

    It will be interesting to see how this works out for you Mark. Sometimes it is just easier/faster/simpler to  build  from scratch then to modify an existing one.

    Although it is really obvious that you aren’t afraid of hard work……..:) 🙂

    p.s.

    Everything is Quentin’s fault…….:)

    Well Torchie called it right, I got the roof to nearly fit but it just wasent doing for me in the looks department so I junked it and have gone back to my first thoughts for this, moved the screen back about 6″ and made a new dash frame for it to mount on, rear quarters are now slightly lower too and taper down, It flows alot better now in my eyes……………………. 8345b12f7eb84f958345b12f8c7a3c768345b12f7ec20881

    Sometimes I hate it when I’m right……LOL

    Good to see progress on this one of a kind custom.

    Looking forward to seeing more.
