No, not saying that. Just don't want to ruin the surprises as if I already didn't do that.

Well heres my feabile attempt thus far..

All engine loom has been pushed through the cabin then through the passenger front fender. Braille battery is also located there as well as the fuse box. The loom going to the ABS and lights has also been moved so there not visible.

For the holes Ive glued in an aluminium pieces to fill the holes then filled over them. The smaller holes ive just filled over. Theres a bit of filler there but it will all get sanded down so theres not much there. I didnt touch the strut towers as people say that this may be prone to cracking. I think the other areas should be fine??

ABS im wanting to relocate also to the fender, but im not sure about it yet.

I will be sanding it sometime this week then painting it..

^^ that much filler seems like it will crack the first bump you hit or the first time you drop a wrench on it

I agree. Tino I dont think that method is going to work bro. It seems you filled in all those ridges on the sides of the wheel wells with just bondo, instead of welding in plates.

ya i did bodywork for a couple years and you atleast need to weld up all the seams and weld holes shut to have a chance of that not cracking apart, also you can use 3m panel adhesive as body filler which is more flexible and wont crack as easily as body filler

I have put it on fairly thick but will sand alot of it down so there shouldn't be that much there. I just wanted a fair bit of material to start with.

Or do you still think it will crack??? Especially near the bottom of the chasis rail? If so I'll sand it completely back then.

Idea if no has mentioned yet:

Wrap the engine bay with carbon wrap?

Sorry if someone mentioned it ()

All of done to fill the holes is to glue in an aluminum peice behind or infront of the panel. Then i have bogged over them. Im starting to get worried now that a few people have said that this process may lead them to crack. I might just sand it completely smooth and not worry about filling those holes to prevent this occuring..

Yeah I'm going to sand it all pretty much back to mtal. I will keep some small places with filler though but no where to the extreme it is right now.

Would there be much movement in the side panels though? As I would like to keep those holes flushed over still

T, can your alum fab guy weld? I would be getting the seams welded an wel in some plates at the holes you have filled I did my first cars engine bay with fibreglass over the inside of the holes and filler on the engine bay side and it cracked very quickly. If you are spending time to do it while the donk is out do it right mate ;-)

Im just going to sand it all right back to metal.. I dont care if i can see the seams so i will most probaly remove the filler from those areas.

but i will still leave the ally panels as ive already done the drivers side a few months ago and its fine thus far..

I spent countless hours welding all of the holes and welding in plates. I know mine isn't going anywhere and will not crack. I tried to fill everything... It's scary though, as you are going along, you think youre done, then all of the sudden there are holes you missed...
