Cheers - I sure hope it's been worth the effort. I've done entire builds in less time than it's taken for these carbon fiber parts. Back doing some sheet metal work and it feels great to do something more quickly.

It's been too long. I'm out in the garage every day...every damn day. Producing all these parts in carbon fiber has been a massive undertaking. It's all turning out very well, but the work is harder than I thought and while it's light (and these parts are way over-built - probably twice what they could be) and worth it I really can't wait to finish it up and get on with some of the larger mechanical pieces that need to be completed.

So to join the fenders and trunk, is a hood.





The skin needs a frame.



Starting to look like a car again...now you can see why I'm not selling fenders to the folks asking.



Needs to drop a bit. I've seen it done twice...other times I've seen it done it's been wrong. This, to my eye, is right.

First, let's get the sheet metal to fit. So nice to work in steel.



Sectioned, dropped and filled.



A little filler and we're ready to get these molds made and have this last panel done. Should be done this stuff in February sometime.

Hood frame video is now up. I've been working on the nose panel for two weeks already...hope to get it done in the next few weeks.

Progress is pretty slow...but then again, I'm making two doors, so the work is doubled. The molds are done. Here's the video.

Short memory sure helps. Working on the next episode when I can squeeze it in.

So every bolt-on panel on this 122 will now be carbon? You'll have to do a braking upgrade next with that new power/weight ratio :-)

Looking forward to seeing some performance data for this creation when it hit's the streets!

Turbobricker first...LOL. Should be ready with the doors over the weekend. It'll be good to get them back on the car.

This carbon fiber work is just nuts - nevermind the finished product, the level of work required for the entire development process is outstanding.

Once I'm done with the nose on my X1/9, I really should figure how to make a 'plug" (?) incase I wreck it again :D
