By the way this car is currently in paint and looks killer. Unfortunately I can't post any pictures s they want to do an un veil at a show on September.

Hope it's done in Lacquer  Wink

Of course, since that's period correct.    Twocents

I don't even know where you could get lacquer  today. The stuff was deemed highly carcinogenic years ago. Also it was done with a base coat clear.

Steve, how did he go about flaring the front fenders? I have to do the front fenders on my Daytona race car.  I was going to cut mine, and use the baseball bat method to flare mine. I am just wondering if there is a better method of flaring them. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Pete

I am not sure how they did the flares on this piece. I can tell you that if you try beating them out your arm will just about fall off. The metal in these old fenders is really a hard compound  and does not stretch easily. I did  small flare on my car and even as small as it was it was tough. If you look on the thread about the 305 Daytona build you can see from one of the final pictures posted that they jus cut a radius opening for the tire and welded a separately made flare to the fender. The thread is titled "305 found".

Thanks Steve, I am  trying to decide which is the best way to flare them. I had seen a thread where someone used a wheel well patch panel from a late eighties Ford pick up rear fender to achieve the desired flare. I will check out that thread.

Acrylic Lacquer doesn't stick well to sanded urethane primer .. I had a quart of the stuff from years ago so I used it on the inside of  my "good" fenders which are still hanging up and its falling off so I am almost sure I can use an air hose and blow it off and redo it in base coat.

Riverside car?   Roll Eyes   or do you hold a fuel can with a hose to the engine?

I believe it fuels inside the trunk . The car was never meant to be a perfect replica. You are looking at a two year build by one man with the occasional volunteer help from others.  Tim Walker  spent over 2000 hours of his time here. He was not out to make a perfect recreation just a tribute car for Bobby. Bobby made some intentional changes  to the car that are not representative of how the car would have looked in the day. They are not out to fool anyone. Just having some fun and bringing a little joy to a man who gave so much to a sport that seems to have not appreciated him and who also has suffered more than his fair share of tragedy. I was happy to see so many people showed up for this event which was actually to place a memorial in honor of Davey Allison at the walk of fame in Mooresville N.C.
