Your welds don't look bad at all, I'm sure you will get the hang of it more once you do it more often.  Mine where a lot worse when I first started jajajaja

I finished welding the hinge plate back on today and just need to cut some sheet metal to fill in the front firewall now.  Also, I finished the welds in the engine compartment.   ::headbang

Don't judge my welds now, they are as beautiful as the rockies :LL:.

Thanks for the kind words Pedro, and thanks for sharing your build it has been a huge inspiration to me.

Yesterday I managed to get everything cut down in the front so I can remount the hinge plate as low as it will go and I removed the rear trunk.  I should be able to get the hinge plate welded back on today and hopefully fix the missing/bad welds in the engine compartment.  More to come, let me know if you guys notice anything else that I should fix on this thing.

Nice Nick, can't wait to see how this build evolves.  Looks like you are already doing some good progress and going in the right direction.

I'm finally getting going on this build, it's taken me longer to get started than I expected but that's life.  This is the build that was originally started by inland exotics for "Ali"? and later sold to PK.  Here's some info about what I've started with:

The video murci-me took:

PK's new member thread where I've found a lot of info on what needs to be fixed:

PK's original build thread:
http://lamboclone.com/index.php?topic=1233.msg10919#msg10919

So far I've removed the hinge plate so it can be lowered as suggested, it shouldn't be any trouble getting it down to the suggested 1'' or less gap between the brakes and the hinge plate.  Also, I've removed the rear bat wing bars both of which will allow the body to sit down farther on the chassis.  I also removed the front trunk so I can mount the a/c condenser in that spot as suggested.





I plan to remove the sides of the rear trunk soon to allow air flow down to my radiators. I'm not exactly sure how much material I can get away with removing though, I'm worried about taking too much out around the strut towers.  Someone had previously posted a picture showing what to remove but i think that picture was lost when the site ownership changed, any advise is appreciated before i hack this thing up, lol.







Thanks guys

Edit:

I found what I needed to see here: http://lamboclone.com/index.php?topic=12.msg1301#msg1301
