finishing up the side windows and vent windows. It has become clear why no one puts replica Mercedes 300SL windows in their replica. It is just hard work. Next step; send to platers to make them beautiful.Go to Top of Page

Been a while since I was on here. Saw a kit car 300 SL Gullwing for sale on ebay. It was on a SLK chassis, looked ok, but could have been done better. Why would you leave those wheels on it? Anyway, he wants way too much money for a rebodied SLK. Should have taken the 90k and ran! I'm at it again, went to California and took Quints last body from his molds, and drove them back to Connecticut. Been working diligently to make a perfect plug, almost done! I have many pics, but putting pics on this forum are impossable. Why can't there be a button to just upload a pic?Go to Top of Page

Because of potential viruses etc... we do not allow uploading of pictures within the forum section...

HOWEVER... that should not be a problem.

You can simply host your pictures elsewhere and include them in your post.

What you have to do is have the picture hosted elsewhere.... such as photobucket.com
They offer a free account. You upload your pictures to them.... and it will assign each picture a link.

Then in the forum posting.... you simply include that link between 2 image tags like this:

[..img] PICTURE LINK... generally http://www.photobucket.com/...... [../img]

[..img] = that starts an image. (known as an image tag)
[../img] = that ends an image. (/ closes the image tag)

REMOVE THE ".." in those tags.. we had to put .. to trick the system otherwise it would have thought we were including an image in this example.

The link between those tags is the location of your picture (in this example its a photobucket hosted image).

We hope that helps?Go to Top of Page

The body looks great. I like that you put a flange on the lower edge to make a removable lower piece. What are your plans for this body? Are you going to be building these and selling them? (how much?) or are you building a finished car?Go to Top of Page

The flange you see is how Mercedes made the car. The lower rocker panel is removable. When you remove the chrome strip, it reveals the bolts to remove the lower panel. The lower rockers will be molded seporately. Figured I would do the hardest part first. The doors, hood and trunk are already fitted to body with the proper 3/16gap. That's the reason for the structural skeleton under the plug, that's where it HAS to stay until the body molds are done. Ad far as selling a body, that's a scary proposition, than all the hard work is done for somebody to make their own molds and sell them for half price and I'm sucking wind. Not gonna happen. Looking into building 1 or 2 complete running and driving replica Gullwing a yearGo to Top of Page

I know the admin tries to make this seem so simple but every time I try to post a picture on this site I have to relearn the system.
I clicked on the 6th icon (the photo) then I get two IMG markers.
I go to photo bucket and copy the IMG file. I then paste it between the two IMG markers. Still nothing. What a pain.Go to Top of Page

okay, I think I finally got this figured out. This is the frame I am working on. Going back tomorrow to work on it. Will have front suspension from Heidt based on Mustang II. The rear IRS is based on Thunderbird SuperCoupe. I substituted 13" Granada front rotors and larger Chevy calipers. In the rear I used the gears and Trak-Lok from the TSC but put it in the aluminum differential from a Lincoln Mark VII. Then upgraded the axles and rear brakes to the 2003 Cobra.

It's a bummer that the certifier made me re-do the frame however it has given me an opportunity to re-engineer some of the design making some improvements. I imagine though that the frame already had more torsional rigidity than anything that ever competed in Le Mans.Go to Top of Page

Hi everybody. I've decided not to post any more pics here because Photobuckit put some virus in my phone, and I'm not going on that site to download anything. I am making "terrible videos" as my daughter calls them, on my process of making a set of molds for the gullwing. It's better than photos, and I will update often. They are on that you tube site under 300 sl gullwing replica. Make it your favorite, I would put a link on here, but I would have to get another degree in computersGo to Top of Page

Taking my 2nd frame to the recyclers. It seems so sad. A lot of work went into it. A lot learned so #3 will be so much better. We hope to test fit the body tomorrow.Go to Top of Page
