This are the first steps for the body i reinforced it with rods.
 
So it's not a big update but he , this took me about three hours to get it right :).

See you next time.
 O and don't mind the rear right wheel it's a little out of line but  they are not fitted jet

Loving this project. BTW was the Pac Man rod a redo of the Mork from Ork rod? Was in a car show in LA that had the "Mork from Ork" mobile in it in the late 70's with my go-kart and to me the Pac Man rid and the Mork vehicle looked the same other than the body.

 You mean this one ?

 

I don't know if they used the frame from this mork rod i know it has the same v6 (see the ditributer and carbs) .

Maybe somebody here knows more about it ?

That's the one. Disappeared from the show scene then the Pac Man Rod appeared. Always wondered if it was the same car redone.

So hello finally back the kitchen is done Pffff two month's hard work.

This means pic up the Pac rod and start building YEAH.

Tonight i finished the exhaust it only need some little adjustment but i can do that when the engine is fitted.

Now i can start finishing the engine and drive shafts.

But first,

Working on the body , so i made a air intake (i think thats where the radiator sits)getting the right

size was a challange but after some measurements i got it right (i think) put some bondo now the other side and then start sanding.

Here the pictures.

If you have any questions just ask.

Ok see you next time.
