Hi-
The nose looks good, and what I really like are the doors! Good work!

Thanks!!! Graham's pictures on his Leitch Super Sprint really help us a lot to get the idea on how to shape up the doors.

Love it! Doors hinged on the windshield frame seem like a great idea, and if you had a hardtop, the doors could take some of the top with them a la GT40.

Hi Jack!!! Yes, the doors are hinged to the Windshield Frame, we've used an SS Cylindrical type of hinged, welded the cylinders directly to the frame.

For the Door Frame - we used 2mm thick BI Plate
For the Door Skin - we used 18Ga GI Sheet

It will have a soft top as well.

Here are some additional pics

I don't believe Bl and Gl are available in this country. I tried googling and everything.

So...what the heck are Bl and Gl?

Great build with some nice innovations....I like your web site also.

I am planning on a trip to the Philippines later this year, hopefully I can arrange a visit there to check out your build in person.

Theres 2 of them.

One goes on the right hand side of the car and the other goes, umm, oh yeah, on the left.

They open and close according to a persons desire to enter or exit the car although sometimes have been known to open and close due to centrifugal forces.

Sometimes they have windows and sometimes those windows can go up and down to accomodate paying fees at toll booths and also as a medium to change stale air in the car while mobile.

They have been known as an ideal place to attach rearview mirrors.

But best of all they are an ideal way of offering a warm, dry enticement to hot chicks at bus stops when it's raining.

Hope I was of some help.
