Most of my videos are of me building a Boba Fett costume. However with work over the past couple years I haven't done much on that. I have Datsun videos sprinkled in there as well.

Looks good. It looks like your Z has plenty of go. Nice stuff.

This week I have been fighting with the front end, trying to get all of the parts to fit neatly.

This week I get stuck back into repairing the bonnet and then spend a heap of time trying to get the front bar lined up.

This week I manage to do some home built frame pulling and then I rebuild the spray booth.

This week's adventure was finishing up the booth lighting. I then moved on to rust treating the whole car and painting the epoxy primer.

This week I planned on painting the epoxy on the inside of all the panels, but I ended up getting side tracked by more panel beating and trying to fit a really dodgy wing.

This week I get to see how my wing came out, and it was not as great as I hoped.

This week I have finally gotten to primer the inside of all the panels, and I get on to tackle the fuel flap.

Keep up the fantastic build. My welding skills are not on par with yours, but you have inspired me to get after some of the stuff in my 510. I just spent the last 4 hours cutting rust out. The engine bay should be gorgeous when I get done (at least in my eyes)

My welding is all self taught. It is just practice. Watch a few youtube videos for some tips and then just give it a go. It is time consuming, but it is satisfying when it's done.

This week is all about the rear end and who doesn't like a nice rear end.

Hi Jeff. I have the tin can effect on the roof of my 620 and was wondering if you ever had any free time to do a quick 5 min video just explaining what it is you actually do with the hammer, dolly and heat. To the uneducated you just hit it until it works!

240z is looking great. Loving the progress.

Also good news on the Porsche engine, sounds like it won't be long.

Have a look at this vid from here https://youtu.be/8A6NoBElz44?t=11m3s

I cover it in a bit of detail, but basically, when you heat an area the metal quite noticeably bubbles up. While it is hot, basically you hit towards the centre of the bubbled area to try to knock the panel back flat. Once it is cooled off again, it pulls tight and the panel should have shrunk back and the popping oil can effect should have gone.
