    I have 2 main problems with the way the car looks from the side at this point... The radius where the cab back rolls over into the top is too tight needs to be flatter, larger. It's too "peaky" if you will. Upper rear corner of door window opening is too tight, small. Needs to somewhat match the profile of the final radius across the top...ii think... This is the cool factor in scratch building and modding stuff...trying to build what you see pictured in your head. If something's not right you know it but can't always identify it Immediately. Sometimes takes multiple redos on a spot before it clicks.

    My current inclination in the process of changing the car to more of a traditional style by using a solid axle vs independant and going to a old school style frame is to mount the axle in front in front of the grill shell. Thiswill extend the wheelbase a bit and could be hung on a suicide style crossmember if I decided to go that way.

    Using the same radius in all the window corners for continuity of design. As the work has progressed, I've been building materiel thickness in areas so that there will be door jams in the body when the doors are cut out. Shaping these areas as well for good inner door detail.

    made a mistake, had to add some more material. It's a two part epoxy.

    Dressing the back of the cab into the corner.

    The guidecoat let's you draw lines to see how corners and radius panels are intersecting. Shows where every scratch and variation of contour are located.

    Fitting an aluminum firewall. Coated with layout dye for laying a few lines.

    The red on the cowl is the same mix as the red on the side shot, above. It is transparent enough that the base color it's sprayed over influences its final appearance. I'm close on the shape I want on the driver's side of windshield opening. Still too rounded on other end. I just stroke it a bit and then set it down and look at it for a while. Make sure I'm getting what I want visually.

    That's a pretty good hot rod look, to my eye. Has the vibe I'm looking for. Been looking for some quarter by half in rectangular steel tubing. Nobody around here carries anyting that small. Ive got seeing it as a eurocoupe in my head from the beginiñg. Want to build a more traditional perrimiter frame with it. The full tube approach isnt right for it. A hot rod musclecoupe, if you will. 70s 80s street wars. The John milner type ride. Strictly business!

    What the panel looks like at the beginning g of a coarse 40 grit block. Can see how the hard block bridges the low areas. Initital rough in was done with a small hand held belt sander. Second pic shows the other side after a second bockout with 80 grit. Have a nice transpearant bronze metallic I'm playing with here as well.

    Everythings roughed in at this point. Spritzed a coat of black for guide coat. When I sand on it with a hard block, the black will sand off of the high spots leaving color in the low areas as the block bridges across them. Keep working the highs untill they are worked down to the level of the lows, producing a straight panel. The A pillar still needs final profile, as well as finalizing the shape and radius of the upper portion of the windshield opening.

    As I think about this, I order my thinking so that my thoughts and decisions are as tho I'm building 1 : 1. original concept for it was Euro coupe, if you will, 4 wheel independent with F1 inspired suspension with tube links. Lots of photo on first few pages of thread. but I don't know, the way it's starting to look to my eye...stuck the axle I bent in the other roadster thread under it to see how it looks.
