Body Damage is Cool
little more today ....
started re-sizing the other side

[Linked Image]

so got it done ... this pic gives you an idea about the size i'm going for ...

[Linked Image]

and cut the tub , but didnt want to cut to much out in "one shot" .. so this way I can glass it back up and regain some rigidity

[Linked Image]

and a "test" fit

[Linked Image]

also .. started on the backs of the seats .. removed the covers and foam

[Linked Image]

and readied them for cutting .The backs are a different cut pattern , as they have the headrests .. I will still need to remove the headrest supports , and re weld them in the correct position .

got the seat backs mocked up .. and i'm stoked smile ..
lines are perfect .
I'm hoping to have them work like the 4runner , with the bottoms lifting up , and the backs folding down .. so far so good .

[Linked Image]

also got some work on done on the fenders
repaired all of the cracks and lower lip + the holes previous owners have put in .. also got the new taillamp pockets in

Wait - so this thing dosn't have a flip-down tailgate?
Seems that would be annoying to get things in/out.

actually , it's not so bad , as you can walk right up to the back of it and get stuff out , and not have to wory about reaching over a tailgate .. it really nice actually .. But i'm going to be building a small tailgate anyway , because I want to also make the roof removable like the 4Runners .. so I want to have something to continue the body line .

so .. postin the good with the bad !! (ugly pics)

continueing on , and almost done with the cutting ...
removed the wheel well and relocated it 2" up and removed 1" from the rear , and moved it forward , which will do 3 things ..
1. remove that .. n ... hump in the middle of the wheel well (stock seat ketch bracket)
2. create an armrest for the rear passengers instead of the stock 2" arm rest pad
3. allow a 84-89 4Runner roll bar to fit

lots of grinding and sanding , gettin close to a finished piece .

wheel wells are now basically finished , little bit more to do . added/replaced the steel hatch support pieces , and glassed the old roll bar supports

[Linked Image]

also braced the floor as it looked like a washboard !! layed down a 24oz layer of woven roving , and then topped it off with a layer of 1.5oz mat .. floor should be flat again smile
