    That outlet will ether be blanked off, or there will be a secondary backfire protection valve .
    And yes it is in direct contact with the inner wing panel that is still loose .
    I need to weld that inner wing part in its place and when I do it will have plenty of room. (30mm at least :D )

    I am prepping the engine bay for respray (will try and find a professional and sell him my soul probably for a respray :D ) and started cleaning and fixing the bits and pieces
    actually I started opening all the bits that have professionals that I have paid few years back fixed.

    situations like 3 panels rusted trough one on top of the other are common.
    little by little the whole front end was redone. cutting out that stuff and welding new (hammered) panels side by side.
    I will now move to the side and rear.
    I know it is not the same quality level as my other work but I don't want to spend 3 years learning how to do it. I am just glad I even know how to do it like this since it is a big improvement.

    anyway enjoy the photos

    new / old /modyfied rear valance

    btw:
    for those more experienced welders
    last two months I am doing for the first time car body repair.
    and little by little I am getting more confident so I ditched totally the idea of somebody helping me "because even when I have paid shops the body work was substandard (there are few good shops but they usually do ferraris and super expensive stuff so no normal person can afford them)so I just gone for it. so actually doing what I was expecting from the two shops I paid in the last 10 years . It is by no means perfect because bodywork is art but it is good enough for me.

    here is the cut out with the lamp bowls that have been welded .
    [​IMG]

    second exaust port cutting after translating the curvature via stencil.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    yeah probably somebdy can hammer that but I was a fraid of distorsions and that I would ruin the replacement valance
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    left is original.
    [​IMG]

    cutting the rear end
    [​IMG]

    filler tons of filler. :D (kilos actually)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]see 10 mm of filler there, why . who knows. and nobody cares any more... its been cut out.

    next image was seriously scary stuff for me. I destroyed the back end :D

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I menaged to save this thing but it had some issues. also I bent the heck out because I was using the knife cutter to remove the rear walance since I did not want to dig trough 10mm of filler. to find the weld spots. anyway repaired the panel in the center that has rusted and hammered in submision the line.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    also decided to repair the bumper mount recycling some failed battery trays
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    not perfect but good enoug for me.
    [​IMG]
    everyting sandblasted,

    [​IMG]
    using the same stencil for cuting the back I have cut the new pannel.
    [​IMG]
    welded in place
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]actually I have overlapped by 1-2mm for strenght and also did not want to risk the thin old metal but at the end both metals fused together so there was no overlap at the end if that makes sense

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    everyting sealed from inside.
    [​IMG]
    hopefully there wont be any filler cracking with a thigtht welding like this.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    rear end done. muffler exits are simetrical everyting is good enough.
    [​IMG]
    also started working on the electric motor pulley guard, in my mind this is something an OEM system would have :D
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    lasercut elements were welded in place.
    [​IMG]
    and grinded to look preety
    [​IMG]
    sand blasted

    [​IMG]

    and eventually powdercoated
    [​IMG]
    I am quite pleased with the end resoult
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    the fuel pump mount was laser cut and and assembly can start.
    [​IMG]
    some welding . (actually I only spot welded) and gave it to a guy that has TIG becuse my welder cant really penetrate thicker materiall and also to look nice.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]I cut a bicicle tire for rubber and got a few absorbers.
    everying assembeld. powdercoated, stainless steel mounts .
    so you have prefilter 044 bosh pump and afterfilter,
    [​IMG]
    a detail.
    it will be mounted under a car.

    now I have 30 days to finish the body work.

    also when I found out how much a local painter wants to put two sample paints
    I got the cheapest paint gun and tried it myself.
    and I am kinda realizing that painting the whole car is not an impossible task.
    however I am physically and mentally ex-ousted form all this learing and doing the manual labor and figuring ways to make things work for the project.
    so I will take to a shop to a guy that will hopefully iron out my mistakes and get it a new paint job. It will be there probably a month or more in that time I will work probably start doing upholstery and get an official welder course /certificate just so I can sign all the work I have done on my car because of homologation.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    o yeah
    o yeah
    o yeah
    not really
    omg
    anyway i need to remove the bottom corner and repair / hammer /seal the extended lines.
    repair the hokey stick trim removal and repair the baddy mounted repair arch.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I was pleasantly surprised when a friend that I helped install the engine unannounced showed up and started sanding (most horrendous task to me) all the leftover filler .

    anyway this is the progress hopefully I will menage do the rest of the repairs and send the car to the paint shop in the next month.

    also sent a quadrillion requests for the sponsorship, hopefully some company will help so I dont need to wait another year to finish this thing.

    much of members here are also following this thread ether on facebook or instagram
    so I am trying to keep it alive for those that aren't. but I recommend to check
    https://www.instagram.com/craftomoto/
    for day to day updated and detailed stuff if you are interested in the project since I am finding less and less time to do the forum stuff.


    anyway
    I did not like silver hose clamps so I wanted to black zinc plate them and that came out horrible. so they were sand blasted and powdercoated.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I also powdercoated the carburetor hat and the rocker covers and than highlighted the details
    [​IMG]
    motor/s almost done, It will need to be jetted and tuned but cosmetically only few bits left to be dome.
    [​IMG]

    decided at the last moment to put a little definition to arches, front and rear
    first I cut the plywood in the shape of the arch then bent 5mm steel wire . actually it is more difficult than it seems.
    [​IMG]
    the wire was welded in place and the paper stencil was cut in correct shape.
    [​IMG]
    paper stencil
    [​IMG]
    I used 1mm sheet of metal and in alternating pattern welded it in place and eventually made a full weld coverage.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    the front lip is 13mm out and the rear (not pictured) is ~24
    still a few bits to weld but the car is waiting for a re-spray and assembly.
    the front grills since they are made of steel I decided to zinc plate them ant then they will be painted in order to maximize rust protection

    You are a clever man!

    And oh boy, the dude that did that filler work must have been sniffing something.

    Sometimes it's better to do the work yourself.

    (I do see your postings on FB, but I like to keep the forum alive as well) :)

    Now when anyone else does valve covers or hose clamps like that, they'll just be copying you. (And they will.)
    Good luck with the paint...

    It always looked like it is missing some definition around the arches on my build so this worked better than expected .

    Thanks! and yes that filler work, could be called sculpture work :D because how it looked .
    Am not mad that is quite impressive when you look at ti :rolleyes:



    Lol, well hopefully I will be first at something also :D, sure not by the speed of the build :).

    On the personal note: I just enrolled in the carrier qualification course for a certified TIG welder, it a hard core 350hrs course. So wish me luck, I never ever held a TIG in my hand, really interested how will that go.
    The great thing if I become a certified welder I will much easier pass the homologation MOT process which was the motivation for the enrolling in the first place, but now I am getting to many Ideas how to utilize the new skill If I actually pass.

    anyway
    the rear arch flare
    [​IMG]
    layers upon layers:eek:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    all done little rougher than front. but the panel surrounding is in a really beaten up shape so it took.
    need still to tackle the extended line. and hockey delete part and than use the spot weld puller to line up everything . I think that those few issues I will leave to a guy that will paint the car so I can work on the engine and upholstery.

    nothing big. capri is getting a spot puller treatment and a re-spray
    that will last few more weeks

    the first image is for just for shock purpuse
    [​IMG]
    but actually while there is some filler required it is way less than it was originally on the car.
    the rear end has almost none with all my modifications. compared to 3-5 of average that was before.
    the sides will have some filler but after the first block sanding there was bunch of metal exposed (high spots) -not pictured
    not like the last time where there was 5-7 mm of filler and then just sculptured shape over that.
    the guy doing the job is constantly sanding and adding and sanding again .

    actually he noticed few my errors in the bodywork precision and heat warp that occurred and after pointing them out he fixed them before continuation.

    [​IMG]

    on the side note: because bureaucracy for some modifications and stuff I need to be a master welder and not just to know how to weld (you can't just send a weld to be inspected and get a certificate - you need to be a professional welder and then send a weld to be inspected) so I enrolled into a carrier school for welders last few months:D (lol what else will I learn to do just to get this car on the road),
    to make it more interesting a TIG welder . currently pushing 13hrs shifts together with day job welding school and car project (mini projects), and rebuilding my workshop so updates are much harder to do :D
    after all the lectures , tests , I am currently on the practical part , that will last to long.
    but the good thing is I can weld my car parts there , as part of the "practice" and just do the obligatory exam welds when the time comes. (because the majority of people that enorle in that schooling don't know anything about welding grinding prepping)

    oh and I actually learned something new that they are pushing constantly that the weld needs to be super dense ridges like 0.5mm or less apart. (no explanation yet) .

    forgot to share the "to do list" for the bodywork that has been finished.
    I think the engine has at least two times longer list and I don't even want to think about interior :p

    oh and as for the welding school.
    they said thin stuff is complicated (thinner than 6mm :D)
    well challenge accepted, I welded and welded and welded and on the picture is just a part of stuff. and I am now awaiting the papers for a certified TIG welder to be done .

    Nice show of diligence with the welding - I hope it's successful. I think if you made a chastity belt, they'd pass you for sure. :D
    I've been wanting to send another piece of encouragement, but have gotten into spending a lot on some medical & dental projects lately, so I hope to catch up some time next year. For now, Happy Christmas & New Year.

    Well with your attention to detail, all we can expect to see is a perfectly straight paint job that will shame any body shop. It's looking excellent, by the way!!

    its, been a while, and its been a tough year.
    also just could not make myself to write on forum
    most of the member follow the buld on my instagram
    https://www.instagram.com/craftomoto

    I know few of you that don't
    so here is an update, a bit compressed in 100ish pictures . what was happening in the last year.


    2.JPG
    the car was painted,
    4.JPG

    but as my bad luck with only thing I have let other people do contiuned . the paint job was ok at best and horrible at worst
    3.JPG
    engine bay was criminally done so I started prepping my self

    4.4.JPG
    sanding and cleaning up everying
    5.JPG
    sealer in place and all
    6.JPG
    all prepped for paint
    7.JPG
    started trying out rear lights and some other stuff ,, plate is from my dailly to see how it will fit
    8.JPG
    the engine is like 95% done and ready for installment
    9.JPG
    now after the paintjob,, I sent the car to the guy that opened the shop and said he will do it for free, has few years of expeience and that will be great advertisment,
    unfortunetly, the paintjob hell contiued, the car was essensially paintjailed, I think 3 months it sat at the damp and moist place and bunch of stuff started to rust!
    so the guy ended sandblasting the engine bay , and all my work was gone.
    10.JPG
    he did sand blast the bay put epoxy but unfortunetlly the finish was so much far from good , that I ended sanding and spraying the engine bay at my garage, and it came up better.
    also , after like 7 months of paintjail I pulled out the car from that shop (also I in the aid for some extra work so it was not sponsored after all) I pulled the car and started repairing bunch of stuff that was ruined in the process.
    11.JPG
    gearbox gater prep
    12.JPG
    lasercut piece was cut to fit the hole
    l 13.JPG
    welded in place

    14.JPG
    grinded
    f 15.JPG
    I have also cut the ring for the gaiter , btw gaiter is form wv golf halfshaft or someting
    and also I used rivvetnuts for securing the thing
    16.JPG
    I was quite pleased with resout.
    18.JPG
    I have thrown the gearbox mount, why , who knows, so I decided to make my own out of lasercut pieces, . first they were tac welded on the car,
    19.JPG
    next was to TIG weld everyting and fill in the gaps

    20.JPG
    welding and grinding done
    21.JPG
    bit of sandblasting
    22.JPG
    23.JPG
    after powdercoting it was done , note: on the picture was just painted for the photo shoot :D
    24.JPG
    driveshaft was in horrible condition , so I actually took it to a local company that did it's job (wow,, that is like amazing)

    25.JPG
    bit of balancing stuff
    26.JPG
    I strted working on exaust parts, now A local company offered me sponsorship , well 2 (middle two mufflers)
    also the deal was to make complite exhaust with manifolds and all acording to my specifications, and instructions
    I also made all the fittings part lasercut and after that i have turned them on my lathe for better fit.
    27.JPG
    I wanted to make it removable for ease of potential service . this this bolt system was devized.

    28.JPG
    I also asked for tube samples I can make a correct fit on my flanges,
    29.JPG

    Thanks for that, a monstrous update. Good to see you're still on track. After seeing those pics, I'll try to never show one of my wiring jobs.

    Excellent progress, looks like you can't be far from enjoying the fruits of your labour. Shame you got let down by your body man, but I am sure you won't let that stand in your way, the best solution is do it yourself as you are more than capable.

    fuel tank finally done, i used a VDO sensor to work with my VDO gauge , mounted on top,
    also a bit of sound deadening to stop the tank sounding like a bell when empty.

    funny thing happened
    since I started posting car stuff and run my Instragram account my skills have become wanted, and for the first time ever I have trouble taking obscene amounts of workhours on the project car.

    anyway here is an update. pictures are self explanatory but I can answer any question.

    I'm sure you will have to make a cabinet to house all the trophies that you are going to win, you are one very talented person, well done.
