figured out the weatherstripping yet?
Yeah actually I think the weather strip is going to be the easy part, but I am copying ideas from several vehicles including other gullwing cars.
No its not running yet still in pieces but the good news is that virtually all of the parts are new or rebuilt and ready to go back on the car. I have to finish the doors before paint and reassembly though :cry:
I just worry about losing the rigidity of the body. Have you strengthed the A pillar? What are you planning on using to lift it?
Our car with the roof cut out will sag several inches and looses a tremndous amount of rigidity so everyone has been correct with the worries over the structure. Yes I have had to build in subframe connectors as well as permanent new sills, this with the added structure built in the roof hindge section it is actually very ridgid now. I do plan to add a roll cage as well though.
The doors will lift with a single gas strut, like the origanal mitsubishi cars. The doors are actually lighter(including roof section) now than the factory door. I will have a strut on in the next day or so.... if there had not been so many ball games on today it would have been working today
The hinges and door gap have taken the longest as well as attaching the roof to the door. some of these are older and have changed and been cleaned up but you can ge the idea below.
I will post some picts of the other structural mods
