What thread is in the door pins? I thought it was a random self tapper type of thread on the bar/rods they screw on to? Look very nice :)

If they're aluminum then a slightly over-size hole would probably let it self-tap enough - it's not like they have that much force on them. I can't imagine you'd be able to machine a custom internal thread that small on a lathe (although I always underestimate what people can do with enough experience).

Either that or you cut the end of the rod off they fit on to and put a known-thread bolt/threaded bar on it.

Ok so here are progress pictures up until now:D

Found this beauty online.

Image

The underside has had a lot of attention!

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then this was liberally applied.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Still a little thin in places so another 6 are ready to be applied. But whilst we were waiting for deliver we got on with the arches.

Image

Image


The o/s/r arch is now all glued on in the final position. Also got the holes drilled for the n/s/r

Image

And bolted on:D

Image

Image

Image


And that's it so far!
More soon

Ok so to keep you all up to date here's progress:)
Doors are now almost filled perfectly and all shut lines are perfect very pleased there

Image

Image

Also both rear arch sections are now glued on and filled.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Just chucked the front wings and arches on so we could have a moment of joy:D

Image

Image

Image

We also gave the floor of the car a coat of black whilst we were hanging around waiting for filler to dry:D

Image

Image

And that's you all up to date. Hoping to get ready for a second and final coat of stone chip this Sunday.
Stay tuned!
