Oh my God page 5

Man has done cut the front of the car off.

Some of the old Buicks from the late 80's had flip forward hoods ...hinges might help what your doing.

I think it was good. He wants a one piece removable front end from what I can gather. Whether it hinges or simply pulls off is up to him.

Cool project though, that top mount is sweet and it'll be interesting to see this car in person hopefully.

+1 on the awesome build. It's be great to watch you and CarRacer's cars come along. I still remember back in 07-08 when CarRacer came to the meet with his car on the trailer.

Hope to see you at this year's VR-4 meet.

Sorry for the long post, but that brings you guys up to speed. I have a lot more pics but this is the kind of the best of the best pics showing where the project is going. If you have questions about anything on the build just post them up or PM me. From now on when I post progress pics they will be posted here also. Thanks for looking.

I have a tube bender with dies for 1 5/8" and 1 3/4" pipe and a computer program to lay out the bends and what not. The front core support has been cut and modified before removal. I plan to make the fenders, front bumper, head lights, grill has 1 piece that can be removed for working on the car. The hood will be held on with 4 hood pins. I do all my own work on the car, I did have a shop that I used to co-own but I am working out of my garage at home again.

A little more done on the front end. I have added gussets to the box tubing, bars from the upper frame rail to the lower cross over, which ties into the rear motor mount/sub frame, and the front lower cross over bar. In the next few days I will do the strut tower mounts and fab up the new driver, passenger and front lower motor mounts.

I made some head way again tonight. Nothing is finish welded yet but that time is coming soon. The suspension height right now would give me about a 2" fender gap up front. I will be adding more material/bracing to the strut mount, that is mostly done to see tire clearance etc. Now that most of the front end is mocked up time for motor mounts then finish weld, clean, and paint.

So far so good, this is not taking as long as I thought. I will just have to find other things to do over the winter. The motor mounts are done, minus mounting the driver side to the frame rail, this will be a pipe straight up with 2 spots for bolts to go. I did go to the stock power steering bracket holes in the front of the block. This will help distribute the load and I hope not to crack the block from OMG HP's. I also added a 22" gusset bar on each of the upper frame rail bar to roll cage. This made the hole front end a lot stiffer. Now I just need the lower cross member pieces and start the finish welding.











There will be more bracing and gussets as needed but another big step forward this weekend. Thanks for looking.

Not sure if you've thought about it yet, but what about using a dimple die and welding plates to the pillars etc.. for added structural integrity?

Being able to tie the body to the cage like that would be pretty badass like you suggest.

What kind of tubing material are you using?

I have thought of adding bracing like that. But normally it is road race, auto cross, Drift, and rally cars that have this done. For this build I am not sure its needed, but does look really nice. The material is 1 5/8" .083" wall DOM chrome moly tube.

A little up date for the never ending project.









The lower cross member pieces are almost done, I just need to finish weld the pipe onto the rear mount for both. We came up with a slick way to mount the lower cross members to the front frame rail/core support. It uses two flat brackets, one on the top and bottom that are welded to the front cross member. Then we fish mouthed the end of the lower cross member and drilled a hole threw the brackets and the pipe and used a threw bolt to hold it together. This method should be easy to remove and light weight, plus strong. We also have most of the gussets in place and the front end is 75% finish welded. I also finished up the driver upper motor mount, I will snap a few more pics of this when its off the block and a few pics of the install/removal.
