There was some talk of printing these cones on @HelloKitty65's thread:One of the fellas on here should be able to reproduce those tail lamp cones with a 3d printer.
Yeah, I hope that comes to fruition!
Picked up a pair of these hardtop side pieces today. Still not 100% sure which direction I'll go top wise (soft top vs hardtop), but the price was too good to pass up. Essential parts for the dizzy rebuild and shifter linkage ball joints have been ordered. Once I get the dizzy rebuilt I'll need to figure out when I can fly back down and get the show on the road.
The parts should get to me this week (package alert was sent to me today!) but thanks. The early dizzy doesn't have a lot of cross over with your fancy 2F stuff . I was thinking of having it professionally redone but that would set it back by a couple weeks.I may have dizzy parts? I definitely want to “get the show on the road”. I have a few ideas of which tools we should need.
Yeah Clifford will live in a garage most of the time. So a top is not a huge priority, but would be nice. Given the scarcity of hardtop parts, I'll probably go with a soft top at some point. @Kleatus and I were toying with the idea of making our own soft tops. There is a good thread on here with a pattern.Just read your thread— love this story and looking forward to the next update. Am biased but love the FSTs. Obviously, since Seattle rains or is otherwise wet 300 days a year (unlike San Diego where it never rains except tonight), you will need to keep your 40 garaged/covered. Happy you found your 40; the big smile on your test drive spoke volumes.
