A piece of scrap aluminum was rolled in the English wheel just to see how it might work out for the grill.

The crown in panel worked out very well.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 5 184_zpsrler4fgo
This panel is to short to fit all the way across the front end but it is coming out so well it is going to have 2 end pieces welded on.

A little sand bag on a post to hand finish the head light domes. The cold chisel leaning up against the post has the cutting edge ground to a small radius and used sharpening up the dome to panel transition line.

Apologize for the delay. Life came along.
  I know what you are talking about. The goal is to modernize the original look of the grill. A lot of time was spent to that end with the grill opening features duplicating spacing and location. I've got stock grill pictures for the air brush guy to work from to do his magic. Sure hope it works out as planned.

Qkiss, I'm hoping this finds you well. First of all let me be the first to tell you how sorry I am about Photobucket's greed and wiping out your and everyone elses photos. I know people are looking for a new hosting site, I just haven't heard of any results yet. If I hear of any, I will let you know.

Thanks Joe. Doing fine. ---- It was getting increasingly time consuming to work with Photobucket and that was the main for the slow down of the Posts. Also there was talk out there that Photobucket was going to make this move. I don't know what it requires but I am on another forum that allows you to post pictures directly from your computer to the forum as an attachment. This is exactly the reason they set up there sight for attachments. I started out with Photobucket over there also and lost 95% of the posts there also.
    Never did know how Photobucket could offer the service for free unless it was through advertising sales. The deal with me is I am old school. You tell me you are going to do something as a person or a business I expect you to live up to your word. If not ----- I HAVE NO USE FOR YOU.---- Good bye Photobucket and good reddens. Go bait and switch someone else.

EXACTLY ... changes for the future is OK but, including all past transactions IS totally "Chicken $_it", business or personal, as far as I can see.

In this country today, no ... the whole world, it is all about the money and integrity seems to have no place anymore.

The oil accumulator is not too close to the engine block, is it??....I only say because you're going to have to fit an engine diaper on there!!

OUCH ---- Thanks for the catch. Definitely a brain fade moment. The way it is now minimum room is 5/8" buy changing billet clamp to hose clamp style mounting I am looking at 1 1/8" minimum. How much room is needed for a diaper? Checking the rule book  a belly pan is also an option. By what I can see lower SFI ballistic devices are not necessary until Pro Mod??

5/8" is enough for a diaper but no room for air (or error), but the diaper is about the smartest insurance (for your butt) that you can get.
Pretty much mandatory for anything quicker than 9.99 at most (sanctioned) tracks.

QKiss...definitely go with a diaper instead of a catch pan. That diaper saved my ass (no pun intended!!) as it caught all the shrapnel, oil and water, and prevented me from crumbling up the car on the guard wall.

BBF Torino           Thanks ------ Your incident with the diaper containing oil and parts paints a very clear picture. The question rolling around in my mind is was your diaper a balistic unit or a standard  style?

Mine was a standard type...multi-weave Kevlar mesh, 2 layers I believe, with the absorbing pads inside.
The ballistic ones are a bit thicker I think, and probably a real pain in the butt to install.

Yes -----The top was chopped 3" in front and 2" in the rear. In the proccess the top was shifted back 2"to keep from major sergery on the top. This leaned the windshield back a fair amount. I was trying to not be obvious with the chop. For those that don't know Fairlanes it sneaks by but if you know Fairlanes its real obvious.

Don't Know if there is a standard rail or not but they are comming from Japan and the ship loops back and forth from Japan to Stockton Calif.  There is a second ship being built so they can have one comming and one going. That being said they are bringing in alot of rail of all the same size. Don't know much about the rail itself my involvment is unloading it.
