    Ya I've got high hopes for this. I'll head to town to get it metered once it's all in place. I've got almost all of the wood cut except that I screwed up on 2 pieces. I'll continue on it Sunday.

    I had some free time after dusk so I thought it'd be a good opportunity to put in my Christmas present. These are only the low beams, the highs will be installed at a later time.











    I'll adjust the height of the driver light a little later

    The quick test fit


    This piece just came out so nice I needed a picture of it


    Starting to come together



    I'll probably finish gluing it and routing all the remaining sharp edges tomorrow.

    This is taking a lot longer than I thought, but it'll be worth it.





    Clamps didn't work as well as wedging a block midway down the port.

    Looking amazing man, your wood working skills are top notch. Curious as to how the Xcons perform, since I dont here input on them too often. Good stuff

    Re: Build log for 1996 Lumina LS- The Blue Fury

    I wired and glued the top on today at about 5pm but the glue still isn't fully dry because of the humid and cold weather It'll get one or 2 more coats of paint tomorrow, then carpet. Til then, here's a little sneak



    And remember, each hole was cut freehand with a sabresaw.




    While I waited for the glue to dry, I started carpeting the doors. I didn't get very far tho.. only one done. One of the two easy back doors. I imagine the front doors to be a big pain in the ass. I am replacing the stock gray nylon cut pile on the lower half of the doors with gray velour fabric. Why? Because carpeting the front fiberglass panels with the stock cut pile would be horribly difficult because of the thickness of the material. Plus, I believe this looks and feels much nicer.

    I wanted suede, but the sewn suede that the store had looked bad compared to this. I was hoping that they had the microsuede in stock, but I'm out of time... the semester will start soon.








    A little bumpy on the bottom, but this is my first attempt and no one will see it.

    The rear deck is going to get carpeted too since it was badly sun damaged. I'll get the car tinted sometime down the road to prevent this from happening again. Here's the deck after a scrubbing with a wire brush. It got a little fiberglass reinforcement behind it too. I didn't take a pic of it before the scrubbing cause it was super ugly lol.




    While waiting for the resin to dry, I FINALLY finished the box.








    Carpeting it took like 5 hours because of the sides. I wanted something a little different than the 'gift wrapping' style, so I thought a slope would look nice.
