A lot of folks claim the rubber box liner materials help to deaden sound. Not sure how they are fir weight, or for the rules you need to play within.

OK that's enough for now, pencils up. Begin

What about "One Trick Colt" with some 1911 graphics thrown in ?

Great material for sound deadening but not flexible, so have to piece it in for contoured areas.

Red,

I’ve seen some of those aluminum/honeycomb panels, very stiff and incredibly lite, I’m guessing not exactly cheap either.

I can’t help you out firewall wise, unless a piece of 5/8” boiler plate would help??

There is a guy here in Syracuse, who has a Pinto wagon, tube frame, small tubs, Ford 9” and a Ford/Yamaha based, seriously modified Taurus SHO engine with a Lenco. Its a sleeper, red body, one blue fender, yellow door, steel wheels, very fast.

He also has a Chevy El Camino, with Buick Grand National front sheet metal, with a twin turbo Buick V6

Yea, I did a little shopping, the cheapest I found was north of $60.00 a square foot. (the last time I used any, it was supplied by uncle surgar.) It's eggzackery the right stuff, just way too pricey for me. (this ain't gonna be a 100 K race toy, total budget is way south of 10 K)

The best I can come up with is 14 Ga. steel, covered by duct board and then with 18 Ga. stainless sheet. Only the part right under the windshield pinch weld will need some massaging with my planishing hammer. The rest of it is flat.

I'll try to add a picture album today. (having a bit of crap getting them from my phone to the desktop)

Jack, that's my target pack, very fast, but still streetable. There is an old, 40's Ford PU, tube frame, with a 427 and a V drive , all hiding under a toneau cover, rollin on fatties, runs high 8's. He's on my hit list...

SWMBO suggested a flying, pinto painted, unicorn graphic for the rear quarter, that might stick. just have to find an artsy type to sketch it.

Today, I finally got to speak directly with Teri, at Showcars direct. There are 2 different mold's for the Pinto nose. They differ only in length. One stops at the same point as the stock hood, the other goes back to the top and front door edge and stops just short of the windshield. Teri is pretty sure they have both in house. Waiting on a return email and pictures.

As you can see from the last pic's, I will need the longer one and will rebuild the windshield apron to accommodate the windshield wipers and make the body air/smoke tight from the firewall back.

Then build the tree to allow the whole piece to slide forward about 4 or 5 inches, then pivot to the front, for easy engine access. Will still need 2 or more people to remove and replace the front end, but should make every day maintenance and quick tune changes a breeze.

Considering fabbing up some inner fender wells to keep the road splash at bay, not sure if I will ever drive this beast in the rain though.

I finished the mid mount plate pattern, still looking for a 18" X 36" X 1/4 inch aluminum plate. (have jig saw, will travel) I will have to set the bare block and tranny in on new mounting tabs, before I fab the front motor mounts and rear trans mount crossbar and finalize the driveline angles.

All solid mount points might be a bit noisy for the street, but the large gain in chassis stiffness is worth it. That big, heavy, 4 bar third member will let me move the center of gravity at will and direct the torque to anyplace I want it.

Even with the short, coupe, wheelbase, a dead hook launch should be doable and 1.0 SEC. 60 foot time in reach...

OK, back to reality, still have MANY DAYS WORTH OF WELDING/GRINDING FABRICATING, AND REDGINEERING, TO GO.
Rollin, Rollin, Rollin,

RED
