PostSubject: windshield frame trime   Mon Feb 25, 2013 6:19 pm

Lots of compounds bends.... I worked it to the point to where it actually just sat in place....I didnt want any tension on the fiberglass even thou I re-inforced it inside....

As you can see in the last pic, the aluminum is drilled, thru the body of the car and screwed togather with 1.6 mm machine head screws and nuts.... nice tight fit lots of preparation to the body to except these pieces were required to get them in the right place

PostSubject: Rear window trim   Mon Feb 25, 2013 7:55 pm

I consider this to be my hardest bends of the whole build... everything had to be built to suite the cars needs so the compound bends on this gave me such a had time I had to 2-piece the back half trim...

Wow ! Nice work Dom , another realistic touch would be to fabricate an open grill for it.
