Hello, While my knee is healing, I had some time to adjust some parts like the windowframe in front, the semapockets in the front and some othe work. I made some progress but on a slow way...surely but slow or is it slowly for sure?

A small bummer is that after one daughter is happy with her room...the oldest one wants also a overhaulingWink . Breaking out the sealing, replace it with plasterboards, making her a balkony above her bed....new floors, insulation of the roof, new electro, ....Oh boy. There goes my dream for some months in the fridge as I can not refuse her Shame on you ThumpUp
Greetings. Peter

I know, ET. The reversed mirror immage Wink of the engine cover. Did you find that mirror immage part yet? What about the remains of those doors you had?
For now it is a GFK engine cover that I bought from late Guido( RIP) Etzhold. I will keep this on the car. The goal is to make a metal copy after I finished all the other parts.

BigGrin I am back in buisiness. I took me a long time to deal with some work on the house and garden. Some things have priority.
The three lady's at home are happy with the small pool, a new floor in the garage, the new wooden fence , the solar panels and the new rooms. pfffDrool

But after all that, I started again on my project. I was happy to get hold on some original parts from a heb in loan. I got the chance to use a roofframe as a template to make my own frame.
So here are some progress picts.
Like I said....built from scratch.OMG
I started with a paper template, copied it to cardboard and then copied it to a metal plate that since long time was painted for another purpose.
The complicated roof frame is built with rather simple paterns. The bolts are home made, the main pivot part is a 100% copy of the black original. It need some minor tuning and grinding but I am happy with it. This part is 3 mm steel. The sheetmetal is 2 mm thick.

More to come soon.

Thanks for the info but...Smile
There is not much left over on the net that I did not see! Or it was posted while I was typing thisBigGrin

I had made litle progress this year. I need to get going again. The short part of the folding beam is the hardest one. It is a curved U shape in 2 mm thick steel. I made a template in wood with the same curve and width of the U shape. The wooden part was cut on the curve and reinforced with stripes of metal. between the 2 parts i could press the raw cut form and then hammerd the sides to create the curved U shape. After that, I trimmed down the excess material. The form is shown here before grinding some welds *Greetings.

I could have bought the entire top frame irons from a guy here in the US 15 years ago for $500.. I am still kicking myself for not doing so. Crying I see I have a lot of work to do for my replica Heb also.. NICE WORK! ThumpUp

It seems that It takes ages to do something on the car. This due to home improvements for the kids, the kitchen and livingroom. Those are done now so it is time to move one. Try fitting an original Hebmuller top that I could score. Beer Thanks RdR.

I personally think that Rob needs a new category. He has "What have you done on your car today". I think he should also have "What didn't you do on your car today due to domestic pressures" I would have no trouble posting to that on a regular basis!

Your project is looking good! Please keep posting details.
