I like how you got the indentation in the wheel arch surround to match up with the crease line in the door. That looks very neat and time consuming! All looks very good.

Hi guys,been busy seam welding and grinding back the door extensions.
http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/...psee8d4e4d.jpg
So I got them sorted and moved on to the rear turrets and linking them in with the Alfa body.the cosmetic stuff will be done first,and strengting afterwards.possibly a strut brace and cross bars

It's great to move onto something else after working on the arches for so long

Still all looking excellent.

Going to be interesting when you get to fitting the interior. I presume you are going with the 33 interior.

Clearly loads of the mounting points from the Subaru are going to be different. I was thinking more to do with the rear seat installation etc. I guess you can just weld in mounting points - but it will be interesting to see how you get on once you get to that stage.

Cheers ed
Ya il be going with the p4 interior alright.iv kept the rear turrets back far enough so the rear seats will fit depth wise.height wise could be different but il be crossing that bridge soon enough mountings shouldn't be too much of a problem,a few brackets and a bit of fabrication il use the subaru runners attached to the p4 recaros for the front.i cannot wait to get to that stage

Just had a look through your build, top work !. One question what radiator and inter-cooler are you going to use as there isn't much room?, side mounted rads/pods and are you going to use a fibre glass front bumper?.

Thanks guys for all the good feedback
And kris I could always do with a spare kidney lying around I might make some moulds of the arches when the time comes,god forbid I ever get a tank slapper but I'd feel better knowing I'd some moulds in the attic
Hi Iian,I'd a good look at pics of your car when trying to figure out what to do with the arches nice work.
As for the rad and intercooler,iv measured up and think I might drop the radiator back into the slot where the fan would sit.il get a rad specially made to make maximum use of the space.il possibly go with a thicker aluminium rad and some slim line fans.but it will be tight
By moving the rad back into the rectangular slot it should give me enough room for a decent intercooler up front I want to keep away from a top mount intercooler and ruining the lines of the bonnet.but there is plenty of intercooler sizes available to play with
Il prob go with the standard bumper stretched out,with a bit of heat once it's stretched to take the stress of it.

If you got desperately short of under bonnet space - let me know.

I had a mould made this spring so that I could produce carbon fibre / fibreglass bonnets.

I have one on the race car. Amazing difference in weight, which is what I was predominately after, but good clearance of stuff above the engine also.

It is unlikely you will ever need it - but it is sometimes handy to know these things are available.

Keep up the good work.

Got to say Mark, you are a God with the welder, and to tackle a project like this, balls the size of mellons !!
Fantastic looking work, more strength to your elbow, and sparks to your grinder. Top man

Thanks guys for the support and help
Before I tub the second arch I'd to sort out the fuel filler as it has to be tubbed around.i had toyed with the idea of putting it behind the number plate,but it would intrude too much in the boot and be too close to the exhaust.so here's what I ended up doing,much simpler
I was going to use the original Alfa filler but space was tight

Hi guys
Not much exciting to report,just got back from the shed and I was doing a bit of tubbing of the second arch.the second tub is different from the first tub due to the fuel filler so the templates I'd made were not the same
So this is what I got done.
http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/...psac31e9b9.jpg
http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/...ps0c53a5c3.jpg
Hopefully the day next day il get the rest of it finished off and welded up and move on to the boot floor

Another neat piece of work on the fuel filler - that takes a lot of thought, skillful execution, subtle blending in ---and totally overlooked by 99% of the admirers!
