Looking forward to your updates.

Started working on the back of the car. There are some seams that need to be worked. I had built them up from the back previously and needed to blend them in from the outside. I ground the seams out and got that done this morning..


I will fill the cutouts tonight. We are working on the top half of the rear end. I forgot how much fun fiberglass is to work with.

Those are some sexy looking duds you got on. Kind of a woody allen movie look alike thing?

Just givin' you a little raz! If it keeps the glass dust off, it's a good thing. I get glass shards between my fingers and it keeps me up at night itching.

The rear valence came out nice. Progress is good.

Looking good Brent, keep the pictures coming. When you get time please give all the details on the rear bumper install. I will have to install mine the same way. A step by step would be great and would help Josh sell more of them. Keep up the hard work Mark

Not too much to report. I was at it all day and if you look at the car it looks about the same.
Got the pass. door lined up much better then it was. Still not perfect, but I can tweak that tomorrow.
I was working on lining up the front fenders, and Josh noticed that the nose was not sitting right with the car. We put in the core support and found the brackets that keep the nose where it should be. I had gotten used to seeing it with the nose sagging a little. We moved the nose up a bit and it changed everything. So I guess I learned that today. Slow down and make sure everything right because each part can change the next...
Josh is having a piece made for the back that should be done tomorrow or wed. and then I can finish up the back and have something to look at.

Nice work...keep it moving along...

BUT a BIG fashion faux pas...You are not suppose to wear white after Labor day...What are you thinking?

Damn cool Brent, is that from the mistress?
How much longer will you be out there making progress?
It's coming together nicely. Any side shots showing the rear
section with the spoiler?

Wow, really like the script in the tail. Sharp, really sharp.

Are you sure that is your car?

Where did you find the blue stripe tires?
