Yeah, I'm really getting into cars these days. As is typical of myself,
I catch "fevers" of interest in things. Lately it's been auto restoration
and customizing. I've been searching the web for sites having to do
with car chassis and suspension design, auto body fabrication and related
topics (I'm interested in interior upholstery too, but that ain't
One thing I'd really like to find is a website detailing the anatomy of
a car body's components. I'm aware of the terms "front clip", "A Pillar",
"B Pillar", etc. but am hazy as to which is which is what, so a website
with a breakdown of these sections or components would solve a few riddles
One more question I might as well toss in here is, what are the obstacles
to getting a car that was fabricated from scratch registered and insured?
I seem to remember someone here had built a replica of an older sports
car (MG?) fabricating everything by himself, as opposed to just buying
a kit car. It must be difficult to get something like that registered
and insured for road use. Any tales of woe or triumph out there?
