well there is a few pics for ya to mull over for a while.there were lots more but i just can't post em all.some were just not that interesting anyway.not that these are either.but this is what i've got done so far.will post more soon.I HOPE lol.here's a little ditty i wrote just for fun.I'M HENRY THE V8TH I AM ,HENRY THE V8TH I AM I AM ,I GOT BUSTED BY THE COP NEXT DOOR,FOR DRIVING DOWN THE STREET DOIN A HUNDRED AND FOUR! now every cruise i get ticketed.TICKETED for burning the tires off my car,I'M THE PRICK NEXT DOOR I'M HENRY ,HENRY THE V8TH I AM!
those of us old enough to recognise the tune may find this funny.lol
ok here is a pic of a jensen with ford escort mk1bubble flare attached.i would love to use these flares/arches on my spit.the jensen is very close in resembalance to the spitfire i think.these flares are not cheap though.about $2000.00 by the time i get them shipped from england.DAMN! what do you guys think of the flares.keep in mind i do need them that big to clear the tires.also there is a pic of the flares in bare steel on a 100e.
ok i managaed to get the plasma cutter out and remove the trunk floor all the way up to the main floorpans right behind the seat area.the factory metal was a total mess and all new will have to be put back in with 16gauge steel.it's going to be quite a challenge i think.there isn't much left that is good enough to attach to.
