Square tail to Roundtail for my TiK tribute hybrid car

I decided to build my hybrid powered beast in TiK colors & as we know they were round tail factory turbo race cars. 1 problem my project is a squaretail!Luckily I got a round tail from Ken Blasko , a cut off wheel & a welder (I did silver solder the top joints ), the rest is history. For those offended by the wing I have a good original trunk lid that will go on when she's painted .

Holy great job! And it seems like it took no time at all. I wish I could get the roof replaced on my pontiac that fast. Nice work!

Cheers , it was not too bad as I kept the inner seams on both panels & welded the vertical from inside, then the lower edge over 2 sessions, the top I soldered as original,that way I still have the open seam showing ala original . I have filled the pig cheeks back in with 'glass & blending the lower edge into the flares .

On the engine it is better but I'm waiting for the guy on the East Coast to tune it via the laptop , time for both of us is at a premium.
