Thanks Tyrone. So far it's has gone together pretty well. As with the Fairmont, I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop and discover I messed something up that I won't know about 'til well after the fact...
Hey thanks Kerry! It really is starting to look like what it's supposed to. I have yet to figure out how I'm going to bulge the hood.
Chris - Thanks bro. It is a bit unnerving to take a $25 kit and start hacking on it within only a day or so after getting it home... LOL
Hey, get with it Al! I want to see more of your stuff! LOL
Thanks for the kind words, Joe. Hoping to see some more of your handiwork before too long (unless I've missed it!).
Edward - Thanks for your input. I really appreciate it.
Dave (comp1839) - Thanks for the pics you sent me. They do help to put a bit different perspective on the rear window of these cars.
I'm pretty much committed to what I've going with the new roof. I glued everything in tight last night. I have also made up my mind regarding how to address the rear window. I've added a .060x.040 strip on each side to narrow the opening back down to what matches with the trunk lines on the body, which is the way the 1:1s appear to be. I kept the new rear window shape that naturally occurred when I tipped the pillar sections in. I knew this was going to happen, but it's interesting to see it in reality - by tipping the pillars in at the top, it also effectively laid the windshield back at a flatter angle, which is another aero aspect of the 1:1 cars.
