I finally got back to work on this project. To detail the engines a bit, the molded in mounts, starters, and oil filters were ground out and filled. Then new pieces were made along with new distributors.

I also have the frame, cage, engine blocks, and front engine mount in color. I's a nail polish called "Buffy the Violet Slayer". It looks like purple anodize.

I hope to clear these parts tomorrow.

Thanks for the comments everyone.

 

I picked a color for the body. It's another nail polish called "Grey's Anatomy". It's a very transparent grey to red pearl. I spayed a test piece over the grey primer and got a grey to lavender. It looks great next to the purple frame. In low light it just looks battleship grey, add a little light and you get a grey pearl, hit it with bright light and it's lavender pearl.

More progress. The engines are painted and ready for assembly.

P2101392_zpsa6acfcd2.jpg

I made a bunch of pulleys from watch gears and tubing. I still need to file off the teeth from the gears and paint them.

The rear end is starting to take shape. I still need to make the airbags and shocks, then plumb the brakes and trans cooler.

A little more work.

 

The rear shocks are constructed but not yet painted, and the brake line for the rear calipers is done. The intake, headers, and turbo bodies are mounted.

Thank you everyone for the comments.

 

I keep struggling through this build, but it's really fighting me.

 

The front suspension is coming together and I'm about ready to permanently mount the engines.

I tried as hard as I could to make internal door hinges, but poor planning left no room for them. As aggravated as I am with this build I wasn't about to redo the cage, so I went with external hinges. I know they aren't correct, but it is what it is. I do however like how they make the body look older than it really is.

While looking through the pics of this build, I stopped at this and was inspired to do something I've wanted to build for a long time. A Hot Rod Bread/Milk truck from the 50's.

P2261440_zpseef0c2da.jpg

To do it proportionately to my eye, the roof and body both needed to be stretched. By just adding to the bottom I think I was able to give the illusion of a chopped delivery truck.
This is where I'm at right now.

I'm going to do the rear as a one piece door, I've cut the two small windows into one large back window.

I suggest suicide doors would solve your hinge problem.

There's less room for them than a normal hinge.

I decided to do a bare bones sheet metal interior with just upholstery on the door panels. This meant sanding the inside of the body smooth. I then made the sheetmetal for the roof surround and the side body braces only to forget just how much room the rollcage takes up. My best solution was to save the back section of the roof and all of the side bracing.

 

Here is what's left. it's upside down.

You can get an idea on why the front had to get tossed.

Next up was to clean up the door gaps. I used .010 x.060 to wrap the edges of the doors and sanded to fit.

Opened up.
