    The gas filler will have to be moved down a little because the cap hits the deck lid.

    I have been busy working in the shop and I need to update

    I block sanded the fiberglass hood

    [​IMG]

    Sprayed one coat of SPI black epoxy

    [​IMG]

    Two Coats of SPI Turbo primer

    [​IMG]

    Block sanded again

    The fiberglass bumper did not fit our car. The center section did not line up with the lower valance and the bumper was to narrow.
    I cut the center out of the bumper and had to modify the holes in the taillight panel to get the bumper lowered.

    [​IMG]

    I used Duraglass to attach the brackets to the bumper. Later I added a couple layers of fiberglass to hold them in place

    [​IMG]

    This shows you have much I need to add to the left side

    [​IMG]

    I added fiberglass to the top to hold it in place

    [​IMG]

    I clamped it to a long piece of angle and added fiberglass on the back side.

    [​IMG]
    I removed the braces and clamps and finished adding fiberglass to both sides and this is how it looks now. I still have to work on the gaps.

    I think the bumper looked great in the first picture where it was two pieces, you should have raised the license plate up to mount between them. Still awesome work!

    I epoxy primed the bumper and test fit

    It still needed a little bodywork

    We are back working on this project. I had to do a little bodywork on the front of the fenders to get them to line up to the new front valance and epoxy primed.

    We have been working on this doing a lot of little things to make it look right. The hood did not line up with the headlight buckets so I had to add fiberglass to the end of the hood.

    Brian test fit all the door glass, vent windows, quarter windows, windshield and back glass moldings

    This area needed a little work

    I worked on the body lines

    As you can see in this photo the front valance was a little high and the fender had a low spot that needed bodywork

    You know I wasn't sure how I felt about the shaved drip rails. After seeing it with paint, I like it. One less rust spot.
