Well today was fun in 40 odd degree heat, progress was slow but still progress lol
Started on the spioler frame work, not completely sold on so I'll work on the bonnet until I sort it out.
It's 7" off the deck at the lowest piont (middle) Milk crate is gound level.
The pictures are a little misleading, the middle of the spoiler is in line with the bumper. The pics make it look like its sticking out much further.
Finished the supports & dropped her back on the deck

It looks a bit odd without it filled in.
Just some other pics

Nice work Andy, love the look of the tightened in bumper. I would love to get mine done, but that might have to wait until I get it back on the road. I'm intrigued now to see what you've got planned for the spoiler.My HJ Premier rebuild http://www.aussiev8.com.au/conversio...j-premier.html

At first. I would have said, to bring it back in an inch inch half maybe to pull the proportions into line. Now maybe its ok??
Cut some card and tape it over your wire frame to give you a 3D perspective on where your at Andy. All for the idea too.

I understand what you mean, that was the plan I pick up come thin cardboard today.
There will be some addition items in the middle section which will make it look shorter.
the renderings look really good, it's as you say getting proportions looking in line the rest of the front end.

Okie Dokie, I covered the spoiler with paper. not the best but will do lol
Imagine a section in the middle, as wide as the grill & takes up half the height of the spoiler.
This will make it look smaller than it is in the middle, I wont say what but you can use your imagination.
The finished height is approx 7" (but will be an 1" lower at some point)
It currently sits back around 1" from the front of the bumper, which has been moved back around 3/4"

The spoiler gives me flashbacks of your dash in bare metal.
Very Mad Max.
Just need some spikes, a scull on your air filter and some gun racks.

I'm not sure if the car is really lower compaired to others, but the bonnet will be approx 800mm from the ground & the roof is at my chest height (I'm around 6')
It looks really low..
The lowest point under the car is 5" & that the mufflers & the forwards strut supports are approx 1/2" higher.

I like the Air Dam thinking.. Like it plenty.
Not sure where your heads at on where your at with this concept yet? However, Just a suggestion. If I may. The Inner fenders are done... Now you need to turn your attention away from those flowing bulbous curves and perceive the Exteriors square form and how it blends its form around... You'd planned to add an English wheel to the tool room yeah? lol
Its you build Man. So what, where and how is your doing.
I think it needs a little more....... tweaking. (If it wasn't already planned)
