72 Motorhome I think,,LOL I tried these in my Orange van. But they didnt like me, Make good seats for mock ups. I have the rails kinda messed up as I welded hinges to them.

Got some hacking and welding done on the lid detail today.





Front lid put to gether than I had to narrow it.



What's left of 2 2nd gen lids.

Trying to decide on the functions of the front lid yet as far as wiring or some of the air controls. To close to the seat for a shifter.

Keeping with my chaos theory style of van stuff , I moved to locating/mocking up the shifter.

Within easy reach.

Made the layout line for the DH hinges also.

Just gotta figure out how I want to hook'em up.

LOL V,
It's an Ididit column, can't tell ya anymore than that.Came with the van and I havent read the directions yet. Wink Moving the shifter up from the tunnel not only gets it within easy reach, it should soften the loop the cable has to make to head back to the trans. have to take a cable with me next time at the shop to get that figured right.

Front lid is done enough until I prep the whole DH for finish.

The Lokar isn't working out to well with the overall layout of things. Think I'll be going with a B&M instead.

Haven't made a lot of headway but some. Got the back lid far enough for now. Need another gasket yet.

Put some solid struts on in place of the shocks to hold it up while the air is disconnected. 2x4s in the front.

Had to get it in roller status to put the DS out in the open.

No it's not Dix. All the big pieces are in their places. A lot of small stuff to do yet , like bush the frame for some bolts. shorten the driveshaft. Still have to pull the RA out and get that set up to specs for camber and such and rebuild the calipers. It's going to need some big cash to finish up the front of the engine and fuel system. One bite at a time, This one is going to take me a while! I kind of bounce around alot on something like this, it keeps it from being to boring and it gives me time to hunt for stuff or think of the next steps. A bunch of steps in this thing.

Whatever you're doing, it works! It's really starting to shape up. I applaud you for your vision. Take your time and get it the way you want it. Nothing wrong with taking the time you need to get it right! Looks great Digz!

Messed with the Norcal today. Process of locating all the holes in the wing. making a pattern and transferring those. Then the scary part, drilling holes in a perfectly good roof. This is temp because it will have to come off before paint.













Pic out of order again.

Messed with the gullwing today some. redid the strut anchors on the door to gain a little height and get them out of the door when it is closed.

I can walk under it now when it's at this ride height. Once the bags are blown tho it would be low again. Still better I think.

Also went looking for some metal to get a body line back on the front roll pan. Again way to much filler.

I opened up the weld seems, trying to decide to remove and start over or clean it the rest the way off and re-work the metal. There were some things I was thinking of adding anyway down here.

Another one of those deals where Randy just went nutz with the filler, really didnt need all that to get a better shape. No biggie , just makes ya scratch yer head wondering WTH he was thinking ! LOL
