Mocking up the rear 

This reminds me so much of seeing the pictures from the 50's and 60's of the great Italian designers doing their clay models and prototype work very quickly to get approval for designs for manufacturers. So cool!

Good thing you aren't me, because at this point, I'd just wrap it in aircraft fabric.

I'm eager to see the sheetmetal work start.  This is a very ambitious project, and I really enjoy it.

Thanks y'all!  The first metal shaping will probably be the door jambs and frames

I recall some primal scream therapy during my last TIG shenanigans.....

So true. If everything is going smoothly, TIG is a super-zen experience. The other 90% of the time, it makes me want to murder small furry woodland creatures.

I really enjoy TIG welding.  I still have yet to try Titanium but hopefully at some point?  No... no TI headers on this engine, I can't imagine what that would cost!    A nice helmet, lighting, clean materials, and being comfortable with your hand positioning really makes all the difference

Bump. Any updates on this project? Once the wire frame started it got pretty exciting but it's been crickets for a while. Just checking in as I have this saved on my phone to check in on occasionally.

I appreciate the interest in the project! Not really I've still been working on this 280z w/ 2jz swap so that takes up most of my time.  Hey I did get to weld some Titanium though and it was not that bad at all.  Realistically it willl probably be a few months before I'm back on the fauxrarri.
