Going over the front end on how I built it up under the bumper, and then what it finally looks like put together. I filmed this at 1 am, so sorry if I sound so silly tired but it shows a lot of the front of the car. ... See MoreSee Less

Wicked work! In the good sence. Will be awesome.

Super práce Tome!👍😉

Will be amazing 🤩

Front End is DONE……ish:-)
Yeah so at 1am this morning, I finally put the front end together. NOW, let’s be very clear there are many more details to build on the front end and a lot of the car (ie. greill, diffuser, intergrated fog lights, paint work etc.)!! But the main sheet metal work is done, yupppeeee
In this post I finish the lower section of both wide body fenders and wrap around the front of the radiators. So except for the diffuser that will be attached to the bottom of the bumper, I can finally move onto the back.
I am trying to get the car done enough that I can finally pop put the wheels on and test drive it, this is coming soon!
Truly what I have left now is to hang up the tow bar in the back, and do the charger port. Then it’s clean the car up, set the wheels on, and finally put all the software back i……and update it all.🙂
Then finally, TEST DRIVE!!!
Lastly I also posted a bit of a video showing all the work done in the front:-)

So much to say, so little time!
Yeah so I have been working on the project!! Quite a lot, but not one thing is done completely Yet!! So I figure since it’s been a month I better update u all a little.
Hhmm
Where to start.
1. Doors, Both front doors have been fixed and in the end only one needed re skinning, Thanks Peter Hammarberg for helping with that greatly.
2. The front wide wheel arches are edging closer! Almost there actually, both the side skirts on the car are done and matched to both wide wheel arches!
Both the side skirts and arches were very tricky sheet metal work but that’s what made it quite fun as well, I am really happy with the result there.
3. The rear tow hook system from the Model X I picked up from Poland last year is now modified and prepared for mounting, (this is also a very short job left to complete actually)
Thanx for Peter Hammarberg (Jr.) for getting the big welder out and prepping that up on this super thin kitchen steel at AJ’s in Sveg!
4. Lastly to do all the above I had to totally take the front end apart and out it back together so it feels great to have done that and start to prep the panel gaps for painting body work prep!
5. Lastly I have also received the front and rear windows for the car!!
Thanks a ton to Mikael a Veterania for setting us up with the glass.
Aaand of course also a Huge thanx to Magnus Proos and Mobergs glass in Sveg, we will be doing a separate post to check test fit both front and rear glass sometime within the upcoming weeks.

I believe that is about it for now, so u see, yes there has been a fair bit of progress but kind of scattered so hope u can understand how it’s been tough to post anything too interesting.
Now I am really close to finally putting it on its wheels, update all the software and Finally doing the first test drive out of the garage since the Amazon and Tesla became One:-))))

All I have left to do before that happens is the front of the wide wheel arches, the tow hook mount and the charge port!
Yupppeee, let’s giverrrr.

Edging closer!

Over the weekend I was able to get a bit of work done, feels really good to get the left wider fender to the same state as the right one. The whole upper section is done and ready. Now it’s just to finish the bottom back half and tie it into the sideskirt, and of course tie it to the front bumper radiator area....... this will take some creative metal work, I think 🤔.
But, here is the work I did on the front left side.

Looks like a robo car! Can’t wait to see the finished project! Amazing

Love the headlights 🌞🙌

Welding level master 😂 i like it so much Tom! Cant wait to make software in it!!!!

Jäklar vad snyggt det blir! 👌

Finally!!
The front is mostly done! Yes many more details left to tidy up the a huge chunk is done...... and oddly it feels like I finally have turned a huge corner:-)
The Radiator is finally attached properly again, and then the front bumper is also completed. I did a small video to show how I welded some of the sections together:-) it was very tricky doing this alone...... but my son helped when he could! This I will post a little later, but here it is in picture form.
Now that that the front is together, I can fit the rest of the front wide wheel arch and finish them. Also Max Hammarberg has helped me find some extra old Amazon fenders so I can cut off the pieces I need to build the front left fender.
This was exceptionally difficult because to get the bumper to fit, I had to figure out how far up and down, left right and in and out....... to the milimeter, but once I got one side set then the rest went well:-)
Enjoy the pics, yes I am getting closer to finally get to putting the software together and doing a real first test drive! This is such a huge drive for me!

Ok.. A stupid question and maybe you already have answered it before. But what is the purpose of the radiator?

It’s coming together!

Looks awesome 👌
