Front end taking shape – Road Runner Concept – Chapter 4

Thumb_4

After the restoration of body the first area Pierre started coach building with for the ’71-Road-Runner-into-Road-Runner-Concept transformation was the front end. The original bumper was cut into sections and welded back together in the shape like in the Road Runner concept illustrations. Sheet metal was welded in place and a new lower grill opening was formed. Housings were fabricated to hold Camaro running lights. Along the way Pierre decided to make everything as smooth as possible, so he would weld the front fenders and the rest of the front end into one piece. When the car is finished the front end can be taken off after removing a few bolts and disconnecting a few wires. It takes extra planning and fabrication but the car can be worked on in the future if needed.

      Yes, it’s currently progress. Based on a ’71 Road Runner. When it’s finished it will look pretty close to what you see in the concept illustrations.
