Ugly but its only paper. I really want to make a full fendered closed cab body, But you all know I jump around from project to project and think if I keep it simple may finnish? Motor is back from Machine shop too.

You could almost put a "pickup truck" bed back there...

Storage anyway. Was trying for the stretch soft top cover look on real 7's. Hope some rounded edges and head rests break up the length. In front of rear fenders will have some intakes maybe with scoops.

Fun playing

I like it! Looks more classic. Maybe a luggage rack from a Spitfire or something like it instead of pickup bed walls, though. Only because that would make it easier to tie stuff down.

Top of wood is top of rear panel. Planing to make some lockable storage back there. Could and probably will change. Heading back to car this weekend and will start assembly of engine

Wanted to do dry sump but will wait until or if I ever finish car. So baffled oil pan. Waiting on Cams returned DIC for something a little more aggressive from Drag Cartel
