The final prototype is cut, and hopefully it fits :mad: It is just zip tied to the vehicle, it is not bolted on properly and that is why it looks like it is not bolted on properly:p

This picture is the previous prototype, I made adjustments and fitted it to 2 different 60's. I think its good-to-go. Let's just hope I didn't screw it up again in the DXF files.

.dxf files? The 80’s are calling and they want their retro CAD format back :). Kidding aside, Let me know if you need some help moving this data to a more contemporary format. I can also help out with post processing etc.

cheers, James

Thanks! I will keep that in mind. My laser shop uses DXF and I have my Auto Cad skills worked out quite well at this point. My problem is that I currently do not have access to a local plasma table, but I soon will so that will help. I could produce a prototype in a weekend instead of a year once I have a plasma table to use.

Anytime. Best way to reach me is via PM. Been super busy with work but am willing to help out. Got access to the full suite of Siemens NX CAD tools and would be happy to help out With any CAD related topics. I used to live in Flagpole in the 90’s and still have some good friends there.

This kit is basically ready to sell now. I am working on tightening up a few things, and having an installed photo to show soon. It really does look great in person. I am excited to show it finished. :clap: I have no time for anything right now, that is why it's not done
I suppose that’s a good problem to have. You do great work and it’s awesome to see when you have time to post! Thank you!

Is there any possibility of making FJ62 headlight bezels in the future, or completely off the table?

Edit, just realized I had already asked this a while back. Disregard the dummy.......
Haha! It is part of the plan. I want to make a conversion to 7" round for the 62 and I would like to make 62 bezels also. I need more time in my day :meh:
