Wide Body arches “rear” Done.....ish:-)

Well this took some time!! But I am almost totally happy with the outcome. The left side I have to do one line adjustment, but it’s very small and simple to do. It’s in the top back I didn’t have a perfect continuous curve a small flatter spot..... and Anna Carin picked it out right away:-) ha haaa
Anyway, I am happy and quite proud of these arches as it was a whole new level of metal work with so many different curves going in deferent directions.
I also like the connection to the running boards so yeah, nice to finally move on to the front wheel arches:-). Also, where the wheel arches attach to the car, I will blend in that connection so it’s a nice smooth transition:-)
Last picture is actually a sneak peak of the front wheel arch, already installed the inner arches so I can build out the out metal flares:-)

Epic machine!

Duck tape n metal!

After a month of simply NOT being able to get work done on the car FINALLY! A solid three days:-)

It’s been very frustrating to not have a real chance to work in the TeZon, just too busy with life I guess.
Anywhoooo I finally got to basically build out the rear wheel wide body fender!!!! So much fun.
The process has been interesting, a lot of learning but after welding up the interior of the wheel arches I started to piece out the outer sides.... meaning that I first welded in the Amazon outer edge, then cut out a piece above that to site as tight to the wheel housing as possible and then Duck tape!
Yeah so I played with a whole roll of duck tape all day shaping out the future fenders. After 4 re iterations and a lot of chatting with my friends to get there input I finally settled on a shape that I was totally happy with!!
Thanx All and Johan Eriksson, “powered by Johan”fun to have all the input from all angles!
Then I cut that off the car and bingo, I have my template. Since it was so long then I cut four separate pieces of metal out and starting from the top I worked my way down.
I must say I have been pleasantly surprised at how well this has turned out, I only have one small front section on both sides to add and then of course grind it all out.
Oh and to get a good visual of how it will look I also tested out the new rear bumper!!! Sooo sweeet.

Great work it's will be nice 🙂

Fantastic

🚀👌🚗

Nice to see Liam got some healthy hobbies, not just hockey 😂😂 We are also working on a Amazon project, but this will be original.

Parts details..... stuff:-)
So the bumpers from PTT arrived! Wow 🤩 I am simply in awe actually, they did the Perfect job, and I dont normally say that lightly!
What also amazed and surprised me is that they included all the steel mounting plates, and a fresh set of bolts! I didn’t expect that.
Well I have to say thank u one more time for these guys coming through and doing it All custom hand made:-)
Also I received my new door skins for the front doors! Both of them I am taking the whole outer shell off the doors and putting new ones on........ this was a sure way to get a perfect rebuild. So on this front I had to strip done the whole front ( like take the hood and fenders off so I could take off the doors.
And lastly I am finally on the last piece or strip of the rear wide body arches. So hopefully I will have some pics for you soon on that.
But most of this was no point to show much pics of so instead here are a few of the new bits n pieces and the beautifully polished stainless steel bumpers.

They did simply a wonderful Job, I would love to thank them very much all the people that work there and willingness to help out!!

Awesome! I have bumpers on my wagon from PTT too, friendly people, good service and products that fit well. Very cool that they wanted to do a custom version for your project so you do have proper Amazon style bumpers.

👍
