    I bent mine out of soft aluminum armature wire.  size was determined by scaling down from 1:1 dimensions.
    I set up a bending jig...laid out & drilled the port spacing as well as drawing the angles for the tubes.
    All bends were made around a piece of dowel rod for consistency of shape.

    header on the bend jig.


    and on the car.

    Not sure what material it is.
    Super glue seems to work pretty well with it.
    Properly roughed up with 80 grit to cut through the mold release residue, body filler & fiberglass resin both get a fierce bite to it.
    I've also used a 2 part epoxy putty that I get at the Ace hardware store with good success. I like it because it can be rough shaped & will hold shape until it kicks.  It was particularly handy when doing the 5 to 3 window mod on my body.
     
    My body had some pin holes & thin spots...how about yours?

    The color of the material on the body you're using looks very much like the 5 window that I started my 3 window project with.
    Nice work!

    Hi Bob, thanks for checking on me.
    Everything's good.
    Getting ready to move.  Triple the size of my guitar shop & 4 or 5 times more room for my model bench & other projects.
    Spending what free time I have practicing on tightening up my setup & execution skills on the mill.

    I'm kinda up against the learning curve on my mill work. So while new information gestates in my mind that will help the quality of my work, I've spent the morning developing templates for cross members & mounts for the front control arms. They fit the frame nicely & I've got them level, front to back.
