Thank you

Had it verry verry bussy with school, so there was no time for my car. BUT this last weekend I finally worked at it.

Much grinding and welding and again changed my minds about some things. AT first welded some holes close in the pillars, channels and dashboard) (there's only an couple of meters left to do :shock: ).
Some pic of closed holes;
Image
After that I also maked the choiche to ditch the 911-look dashboard (what I picked up two or three years ago for much money and long riding).
I'm now sticking with the original dashboard, only not as boring as the standard one (this is the nude starting).
Image
Unfortunally this also means that I have to buy new gauges at this point :wink: .

And we also got further with the airscoop in the rearlid, we ordered some small stuff and by checking the fitting of the hoodlid it seems that there's something realy not straight :? . But we keep the welder warm and have the grinders ready to make it nice again.

Sorry Ben.

Still no news. I've been verry bussy last couple of weeks with school, fixing an Opel Astra (with GSI-engine), and preparing an Opel Kadet GSI for racing. Hope to get something done in a couple of days, and hope to update sometime.

Finally an update!

Last week thuesday I had maked some plates for the dash and for welding close an ventilationgab in the heater channels. I then also unscrewed the steering pilar. And get on search for good hammer and dollies. Because mine are now verry cheap ones, which are $hitty.

Last friday I cut away the border of the engine lid and welded that close.
Image
Also last saturday I had worked on the car (before I got partying :shock: ) for 1,5 hour. I begin with installing the 2 lowest hoodpins; i say it again; WHAT AN PAIN in the ass are that hoodpins on an round decklid :twisted: .
I "finished" that tonight=> see pic
Image

I also finally have decided which rear lights I want to use.

Today received the ordered hammer and dollies. I used it today a couple of times, and I must say quality is just so much better then the cheap poop.

Had been working on the bug yesterday afternoon. I was planning to make an hole new dash by myself. That plan I still have, but is set back for an couple years now because the budget (which budget:eek: ?) don't let it.
So I started making an temporary dash.

Besides the switches there also will be signallights.
