Worked a little on the white hot rod. In keeping with the old Super Modified theme
mocked up a roof for it.

Image

An old Tyco truck donated it's top for the cause. It's a little big right now and has a bunch
of holes in it, but nothing that can't be fixed. It fits the lines of the car well and should
work out.

Image

There are some things on the inside that need to be cleaned up before it's mounted
after that the window lines can be opened up and the roof trimmed to fit. May open
the top up to cut down on filling but we'll see what happens.

All for now

Kevin

Roof for the white hot rod is now mounted. A piece of sheet plastic was attached to the rear to
cover up the large hole created when cutting the roof of the truck body. A new rear window will be
cut after molding it in as shape and size has yet to be determined.

Image
Image

The roof is now in the process of being shaped to the roof lines and molded to the shape of the body.
The side windows were opened up using the window lines molded into the roof and shaped back to
meet the body at the interior bucket.
Once the molding process is finished the top will be cut out to get rid of all the holes left from all the
Tyco do dads on top after they were removed.

Image
Image

Body is taking shape and coming around nicely. We'll let all this dry good and go back to the build off car
for awhile.

All for now

Went back to work on the white hot rod. Opened up the roof and a back window.

Image

The exsisting holes in the roof prevented making it square, so we just
followed the outside of the holes and went from there. May make the back window
a little bigger, not sure yet. Kinda like the small one. Need to search the junk box
and come up with some more parts.

All for now

Work continues on the white hot rod. An injection cover was made up from some sheet
plastic. Bent around a file handle to form it and built over sized to have plenty to play with
and attached to the body.

Image

After drying it was cut down to size and shaped to match the angle of the hood.
Then a set of injectors were cut down to fit inside. Was goint to just cap it but
decided against it and made up the injectors.

Image
Image

Progress is slow but she's coming along.

All for now

While fooling around at the bench, found this old VW body I had stole a screw post from
a while back.

Image

Staring at it for awhile and making some pencil doodles on it, cut the back half off of it.
After the initial cut, took a chunk out of the roof and off the sides.

Image

Then put her back together lining up the roof which made the sides a little high. That's
ok cause the windows will be opened up anyway.

Image

After the rear setup, cut the roof off at the front pillars and in the center of the window.
Took another chunk out of the roof setting the roof rearward.

Image
Image

After this setup put her on a chassis and started laying some lines out. The initial layout
looks promising but will know more after some sanding and opening up some things to get the body to sit
right on the chassis.

Image

We'll see where it goes.

All for now
