a thing that Always bothered me was the mirror arms on the slambulance. back in teh day I made the, quickly out of threaded rod, it had to go fast Always with the thought to make the BD style arms later on... almost 10 years later it is time:-)
My punch tool was broken, but the spring I can use
made the bracket for the pillar
heating and bending some 10mm rod
ready for assembly!
drilled holes in the pillar and use the nut-inserts for the M8 threaded sections. works easy:-)
Bothe sides done! just need new mirrors now and i might be able to look behind me for a change!
I was also missing the box for the glovecompartment... so had to create one and made it out of steel since that is easiest to work with I thought.
tracing the opening for the door
bottom box section
and double check
all welded and ready for finishing
filler inside and outside, just to smoothen it up a bit
and paint:-) I have a glove box compartment as well now:-)
Still had to make a watercatch for underneath teh grill before windshield
fits... ready for paint and installation!
interior side is painted red, exterior grey:-)
NICE and snug
The rears needed some extra work since I wanted them slightly lower versus Original... covering the third light and exhaust holes... more sectionning:
Found an old and crusty set of bumpers for the Porsche... perfect for modifications! wanted to bring them closer to the body:-)
ready for cutting and sectionning!
after more cutting, welding, new profiled metal, ... looks like:
and same procedure for the rear:
