Hi all here is another I started at Christmas

I cut the doors out to make working doors but since they cut into the roof I'm wondering about making them gull wing doors.

have you decided on gull wing doors they look good and different, i would`nt be supprised if one of the custom places in the USA have not done it, but it will look awesome when done if that is what you are going to do

It looks pretty neat. Is it ordinary kitchen foil?

Nice one and that is a great idea re the gull wing doors although I don't know if it would be possible in reality, as I would imagine that the conversion would require some considerable re-engineering of the body shell.

great work like the kitchen foil idea i use bmf but it does not like to stick to shinny surfaces i will keep that idea in mind for future builds
