Happy Easter All!
--- spent mine putzing around with a variety of things on the bus. Most notable was altering the rear wheel cutouts. Just was not happy with either the factory (way small and funky looking) or my first try (just not Art Deco enough). I scaled it down and gave it more sweep and I much happier with it. It will also mean a lot less work when it comes time to seal things up and keep the outside out.
After being away from it for so long, I'm having a hard time remembering where the heck I was on so many things. Hopefully it will all start coming back.
Below are a few pix comparing the original, the first try and the final on the wheel opening. Next challenge will be to convert the "concept" to metal.
The original cutouts...
...the first (big) cutout pattern...
..the Easter solution. Bigger than original but smaller & more swoop than the first try.
Only a tiny amount of the actual wheel well well needed trimming.
Still plenty to keep me busy if I can just remember where I left off on so many things so many months ago.
