Moving my build over here from the o-t-h-e-r sight due to complications with not being able to straiten out there new pass word issues. May take me a bit to get up to speed as the format is a little different.  See if I can post a picture?  

     25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane IMG_0686_zps5ce2c2b2

   Cool it worked.  Now my dalema is where to start --- Do I pick up here and go forward or go back and recap some of the initial build? The car is entering the final stages.The photo is from a while back and the tin is done rear wing is mounted and now working on the front fenders and grill.
What would you guys like to see?  ---- Qkiss

In an effort to save as much weight as possible anything that is not needed is removed.

Any double wall sheet metal is removed all round and yes it is a lot of work but remember the devil is in the details. Smile

The idea here was to to cut the firewall area as flat and straight as possible keeping firewall tin installation in mind. As you will see as we go forward the plan will change.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0115

Standing back and looking at the top it seemed higher in the front than in the rear.The decision was made to chop the top and take 3" out of the front and 2" out of the rear. Hoping it would not look chopped unless parked next to a stocker.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0210


Front jig with long arms 3" down and able to slide top back for more aerodynamic laid back windshield.

2" cut from lower "C" post and locating tabs tack welded to top for indexing.  

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0212

Inside copper chill plate.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0213

Outside chill plate on top of inside plate with body panel sandwiched in between. The plates are used as heat sinks and eliminate warping when TIG welded.

With the "B" post shortend and the top moved back a gap was left in the window frame. There was also a rusted section of window frame needing replacing.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0215

This is a 12" long section of window frame being made up to cover all the required repairs and additions.  
The machine used for this is a Pullmax nibbler with custom made forming dies.
The finished window frame work is made up of 2 sections TIG welded and buffed out.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0216

Sections were then cut and welded in place as needed.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0610

TIG welded
And buffed out.
With the top finished the windshield angle increase is noticeable.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0116

This is the method used to open up the quarter panel wheel opening to clear the 33.5/17.0-16 rear tires. After mock up the 5" detention was shortened to 4".

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0117

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0121

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0119

If you look to the lower center of the picture 2 inches to the left of the broken center line is a short broken line. This is the stock rear axle center line. In order to center the wheel tubs in the "C" post area and install them as high as possible under the stock body. The rear end was moved forward 2 inches.  
The wheel opening front section was the only part needing modification. A center line  cut was made up and then 90 degrees straight forward parallel to the ground far enough forward to clear all the wheel opening body features then 90 degrees straight down. The cut out panel was then moved forward 4"-- and a line was ascribed along the forward edge on the body and the 4" piece was cut out. The panel is then installed in its new location 4" forward of its stock location.        

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_1210


Then it is a simple task to make up a little sheet metal filler piece for the center 4" gap.

   Thanks Jess -------A little about me. I opened a  chassis shop back in 1978 and have been messing with this stuff ever since.  I have picked up a few skills along the way with some tools and equipment. I would like to pass along some of the things I have picked up and hope some of these ideas are useful. I know some of the equipment shown here only a very few will ever own or be around but there are also things that can be done in your garage.  ----------- Remember-------- Sometimes your mind is stretched out of shape by a new idea never to go back to its original form. You may come up with your own ideas on how to do the same thing. A fella on another forum I am on says there is more than one way to get to town and they will all get you there.  -------- Qkiss

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_1211

This full floater rear end had been just installed in a Top Sportsman car with only 6 passes on it when the front of the car and guard rail got to friendly with each other and tweaking the chassis beyond repair. It was pulled and bounced around from shop to shop for about 3 years no luck finding a home. A buddy told me about it and before I knew it it ended up in my shop not knowing if it was even close to fitting. To my surprise if I were to build one from scratch it would have exactly the same dimensions. --------- It found a home        
Cleaned up ---- 4.11 center ------ rear driveshaft loop ready to install.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane Img_0122

Tire --- inner body 1/4 panel clearance mock up.


Custom front 4 link brackets laid out ---- Stack of 4 tack welded together and drilling adjustment bolt hole pattern.

      I enjoy the build as much as the racing and you are right it does drag out the build time. I was a chassis builder for years always working on the clock. This is my personal car and am enjoying not being on the clock with this build. ------- Qkiss
