25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0920_zps3403d782
Making a wheel tub pattern out of cardboard from the wheel tub box to transfer the shape to the carbon fiber tubs.
 The cardboard is a replica of the wheel tub end cap and is marked off every 4 inches and numbered. Every number around the arch has its measurement documented from the end cap to the quarter panel.    




25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0921_zps8e1bc3b6
The cardboard is being rolled for the wheel tub main body.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0924_zpsb19c26ad
A cardboard wheel tub is duct taped together and the dots on the tubs are from the measurement taken earlier.  



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0925_zps4ab91e90
 The dots connected free hand with a magic marker and cut out.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0926_zps4ec1a8a2
A sheet metal angle piece is formed with a shrinker/stretcher to the end cap radius and is used to hold the tub shape out towards the quarter panel end of the tub.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0929_zpsb29bf397
Checking and fine tuning the radius.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0947_zps75802ee6
Pieces of poster board are taped in with masking tape to fine tune the quarter panel fit. Note the sheet metal angle shape holder held in place with clecos.  



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0932_zps4083db2e
Better shot of the clecos holding the shape holder in side the tub.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0948_zps77833dc5
With clecos removed and pattern clamped in side the carbon tubs. The pattern is traced with a silver pencil.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0950_zps3e6d2466
With the pattern removed the silver pencil line shows up very well on the black carbon fiber.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0936_zps60036cf8
The wheel tubs are installed with machine screws to the scalloped brackets so they can be removable.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0938_zpsce428d08
Tubs are installed as high in the chassis as possible which required 1/4 window caps to block off the part that sticks up into the window opening.  



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0934_zps4ff11bb0
The tubs are checked for level. It is surprising how just a little out of level can be seen by the eye.








25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0952_zps592df26e
A look through the rear window shows the finished tubs and the center panel patterns being developed.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0955_zpsdb42c610
A look through the 1/4 window at the tubs and center panel that is fastened to the inside of the scalloped brackets and held in place with the same machine screws doing double duty with the wheel tub end caps.
 If you spotted the NHRA chassis tag it is a 25.1E tag. Very Happy

Not wanting to drill holes in the chassis and pop rivet the tin in. Patterns were made up of poster board for scalloped brackets and transferred to  .050 4130 sheet.  



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0872_zps65c92d04
Pattern transfer/layout to the 4130 sheet. Note the scallop tab lower radius is made by punching properly spaced holes prior to profile cutout.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0874_zps6dbdfbed
The tab rails were located parallel with 3 equal length rods drilled and tapped on the ends for machine screws as jig fixtures.    



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0875_zpsf2c06adc
Now the tin will be installed with machine screws and removable. The tin is also going to be anodized.   


25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 IMG_0877_zps1bdadbe7
Some of the tools used to fine tune bracket profile.

Wow! I've been silently following your build and all I can say is your attention to detail and fabrication skills are impeccable. I look forward to each post because that year and model Fairlane is one of my favorites.

master shutoff switch and linkage. It is a little hard to see but if you look close there is a 3/16 rod end on the switch lever pointing forward that will be connected to a Morris cable so the driver can turn on or off while strapped in.

Ballast bar just forward of the rear bumper in the trunk area. There are 4 frame sleeves welded in for 1/2" bolts allowing for 2 ballast bars if needed.

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 014_zps6g2phbse
Looking at the way the deck lid drops down between the tail lights meant the wing would need to be mounted to it and to access the trunk the wing would need to come off with it adding to the hassle of deck lid removal.    



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 019_zpsvzujxsgv
A filler panel was made to replace the drop down portion of the deck lid. It was designed to also mount the wing to. The arrow points to the original deck lid parting line. On top is a straight edge showing the crown required to match the deck lid crown.      



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 002_zps9cy3syxy
laying out channels for deck lid mounting. The dzus button spring holes are located and center punched.  



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 003_zpsthor7ji4
The holes are punched rather than drilled. small punch is set up for the spring pop rivet holes and the larger punch set up for the dzus button hole.


25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 007_zpsyebet4hy
The punches have a center dimple that centers on a center punch mark -- squeeze -- and presto a nice clean hole.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 005_zpsirxzuub1
A special die was made up to fit inside the channel for dzus punch.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 006_zpsejoeq9od
Dzus punch.




25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 022_zpsfkugsxgb

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 004_zpsdywoedyp
Now the wing can be added and the deck lid is removable while the wing is left in place. Very Happy  Very Happy

Qkiss, you never cease to amaze me, not on the old site or even now. I know in my mind that nearly everything you are doing on that 64 will translate over to my 63. Now if I just had the tools and the talent. Keep up the good, no great work.

Poster board is used to design and simulate wing ends and spill plates that are used for layout patterns when design is finalized.
Note; Straight edge at the bottom of pattern running forward on the 1/4 panel aligned with a body line center establishing end plate angle and length.  





25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 015_zps3dwews64
From poster board to aluminum.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 016_zpsk3xgd7df

25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 013_zps2lz6j6ko




25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 012_zpsihrqmrsh
It is a little hard to see but there are 4 wing support rods installed.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 017_zpsllblq2vl
Here is a outboard support rod with a shortie to the corner of the wing end.
This is also a good shot of the scalloped machine screw tabs for the bolt on gurney lips of various heights.




25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 014_zpszbel2gpg
This shows the relationship of the cut off deck lid -- The filler panel -- and wing mounting so deck lid can be removed without disturbing the wing.
The goal for this wing build was to have its lines fit the Fairlane body lines that is with some curves and radiuses and not square and boxie.
I like the way it turned out ----- I think I'll keep it HA HA  Cool  Cool

The front fenders are pinched in 4 inches. With the front fiberglass bumper having an extra 4 inches of width to play with it was an easy task to put an arc in it.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 001_zpsadc9e4d9
With a length of small hardware store chain the arc was laid out and the former board cut.  




25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 005_zps27b2dc22
Little relief cuts made every 4 inches and drywall screwed to the former board then glassed back together.





25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 004_zps6c7fb455
Now it has a more aerodynamic modern look.



25.1E ------- 64 Fairlane - Page 4 008_zpsf3926546
Now with the bumper arced forward it pulls the grill out at the bottom and back  at the top the solid aluminum grill is more air friendly than the stock barn door shape.
