    I’ve done a wee bit more, re-profiled the rear arches and as I removed so much material, they became a wee bit flimsy, so I decided to add a return edge to stiffen them.

    I got some 40 x 10 x 1.2 aluminium angle pressed at work and gently pulled it round to the required shape.





    Then I riveted it on.





    I fibre glassed inside an out, now due to the messy nature of my first real attempt at fibreglass work I didn’t get any pictures. And after it had gone off, I just forgot.
    It went okay, I tidied it up with a grinder and a bit of filler to a standard that I was happy to prime coat.





    I’ll fit them Friday when my grandson comes round, he can help and it may set him on the road to a new hobby.

    That’s it for now, more when I do more.

    Cheers. Tim W.

    That's the trouble with the youth of today, you leave them alone for five minutes and they fit your hot rod wings
