It's better to make moulds of the light pockets rather than having to re-shape by hand each time I do it. Epoxy has no solvents to attack the paint so with a little waxing ( & some PVA for insurance ) these moulds just pop right off. Shown in photo with alignment jigs to help positionoing of the inserts before glassing in.

The Formula rear bumper has a beveled cut on the lower side which looks like it can be used as a mounting surface for attaching a lower ground effects panel or diffuser-like setup. x

Something like this 599GTB diffuser might work, or some variation of it.

It would look pretty cool, but if it is just an attachable part it wouldn't look anything close to it; will have to re-do the whole rear bumper for that look.

Sir,

If you begin selling the front 355 bumpers, I would appreciate being included upon the list for this. Would be going with the version with the Liberty clear turn signals if that will be available at that point and time.

Thanks

David aka MP5Na3

It's been a while since I had the Formula running; almost a year. Thought I'd take it to the Arlingtion meet last week after I got the suspension rebuilt & interior thrown back in, but on the way up the alternator died on the freeway. Had to make an emergency stop at LesSchwab to recharge & buy a backup battery. Then turned around & limped back 50 miles to homebase on battery juice alone. Good thing I brought tools & a water jug.

After sitting in the driveway for so long, things on the car corrode & deteriorate. First was the clutch system, then the Alt. I'm going to go over the cooling system next before going on any out-of-towners. The Richland event sounds interesting, I'll see if I can make that meet. Maybe I'll have the rockers modded by then.

Well, The Formula just had a major clutch system failure in the driveway so it doesn't look like I'll be taking the Formula anywhere soon. After just installing a new alternator from the Fierostore, I started up the engine and felt an odd shaking in the clutch pedal during startup. I pressed the pedal down a couple more times to investigate when all of a sudden I heard POP ! and then emmediately I felt no pressure in the pedal followed by a scraping ticking sound from the engine bay. Something just broke & I'm not completely sure, but I think it's the release fork/throwout bearing. Maybe the pressure plate just fell apart, but whatever it is the tranny needs attention now.

Anyone heard of this happening before?

Replacement Fi355 door moulds, replica version, in progress. The original moulds have deteriorated to the point of no return so I'm taking this time to create newer epoxy tooling. These will save on prep time, hide the upholstery fold, & will be a little more rounded on the top edge.

It's been keeping me busy along with the Fi40 dash & the Fi355 noses (#005 right now ). Next up will be the Fi360 interior.

Also, maybe some fender flares & a rear diffuser.

Thanks.

360 interior would be good. I might have to get one of John's 360 kits one of these days to go along with it.

Epoxy is more expensive & difficult to work with than polyester, but one nice thing about it is that it doesn't emit smelly solvent fumes. Glass mat is not compatible so all layers are done with glass twill weave which very drapable, but doesn't fill corners, nooks & crannies very well. To compensate for this a putty is made to fill the corners & tight spots. This will be a two piece mould.

Final fitting before shipping. Door upholstery completed in black/ "tuscan russet " to color match with Mr. Mikes medium tan #14 which I believe is the same tan used in the '88 Fieros.
