Well its been a while since I posted and I'm not sure if you guys are still interested or not in seeing the build. For now here is some pics of a bit of the progress.

we decided to do spider web gussets to recognize the original builder spidr




the mesh on the hood was a bit thin so we ran it through a bead roller to stiffen it up.





We also ran a part of the new floor pan through the bead roller as well before we mount it



We are also working on new wheel wells. they are hammered by hand then run through and English wheel


Here is our design on a dana 300 twin stick set up. it was all cut on the cnc plasma table... its not super pretty but works. I was being cheep and dident wanna buy a set so this it what we made.. NO ITS NOT DONE !!!! the rods still need to be bent and custom shift balls put on.





we also have a new pedal assembly put in and will be running new brake lines.

Hah. Looks great. That cardboard makes me think you should put some wood paneling - station wagon style.

First I wanna thank everyone for the kind words on this build. we are busting our asses to get this done and be one bad ass rig.

second I have a new pic for you guys.. today we turned cardboard into sheet metal.. The centre console is now coming together and will hopefully be in the buggy tomorrow or the day after. Lots more bead rolling done and the gauges are going in as well.

What tools do you guys use for the tin work? My patience (and therefore results so far) are certainly lacking.
