Hello,

 

  The side vents have been permanently attached. The driver's side went a bit smoother but the other side is putting up a fight........

This is not a battle of force, but a battle of perseverance :)

 

What do you think?

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 

  After an intense battle this is now heading in the right direction.

 

As of 2 weeks ago......

Once glued in place (and reinforced just in case) a bit more tweaking may be needed.
 

 

What do you think?

 

Thanks!

Hello,

 

  Still a lot of tweaking ahead but slowly getting there.......

Continuously checking with the interior tub for proper fit....

 

What do you think?

Hello,

 

  Almost no workbench time but here is some very slow progress.....

 

Started adding and stacking thin strips of styrene to tighten the gaps. Continuously checking centering with the interior tub.  Added some material not only to the body but to the boot as well.  I miss the days where I could sit for hours on the workbench.  Now, 10 minutes is a quite an accomplishment.....

 Still a long way to go but at least moving forward.

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

   Supports were added to help the proper positioning of the parts.

The resulting gaps need serious attention.  I was expecting a tighter fit but it seems these two molds are not as related to each other as I thought.

.... and before you mention it, No you can't just lean it to one side and fill the other.  It needs to be perfectly centered for proper fit with the interior.

 So both sides need to be carefully worked on.

and you know me, almost perfect is never good enough.

 

Thanks,
