Thanks Gents,

It was a huge step forward taking the design from 2D into 3D. The key was to make the buck as accurate as possible since it translates any errors directly to the sheet metal stage...and potentially slow that process down.

It's great to play with concepts...those slide-up doors are trick. R2 has butterfly doors incorporated into the design...on a single hinge. The issue one always has to tackle when creating doors for a hotrod/custom car is in creating a wind/watertight seal with existing production door deals. We're running with two seals - an interior one as well as a knife edge seal around the exterior perimeter.

Thanks for looking.

A journey in design and fabrication begins with a vision, a single pen stroke ... and in some cases the blow of a hammer.
