Surprisingly the plug made it through the moulding process without damage. But, I ran out of the needed fasteners so Fi355 chin #001 is now only attached to the nose with half as many needed. Nevertheless, it came out great. Next decision is whether to paint it body color, or satin black.

I show about 6 5/16" of ground clearance with my 18s. I'm pretty sure I'll be scraping driveways so it's probably easier for touch-ups if I painted it black.

Well, so much for painting it black; used some leftover red. I think I'll re-use the skid pads for the bottom of the spoiler.

Performing some epoxy surface coat repair before starting the next nose. After a year & a half of moulding, heating/cooling cycles a few deep air bubbles started to show through the surface.

Stumbled across this really good deal. Centerline 18x7x42mm, FORGED for $119 each, set of 4. 17 lbs. wheels. Overstock item on their website....hmmm. Might need a thin spacer for the rear, but not a bad deal.

Nice job. I will do something like that but with a little tweek in the midle. To get air up on the radiator.

The GT aero is supposed to have a black plastic air dam beneath the radiator, but I don't have it so I may have to make my own. Thanks.

Rob, you may have already posted this on your build thread so forgive me if it has been discussed. Aren't those Porsche rims? Did you re-drill stockers or machine new hubs?

At the outset I thought the chin would be a little lower at the front, but after looking at the templates on the car the base line appeared to dipping towards the ground. So, I had to raise it up until It was straight with the rockers. I made the rear 1 1/8" tall so it sits in between stock & Arch rockers.

Yes, they are Porsche 18x8.5x10f/r. '88 hubs can't be re-drilled so I"m using 1" billet adapters. Will need flairs .

Al, the Cromodora wheels are front 18x8.5x 47mm, rear 18x10x46mm 5x130mm for Porsche . I pulled them from my kitcar. With the adapters the fronts stick out by 1.75". If I had standard 18x8x35mm, they would still stickout 1" at the front (I have an '88). When I get the time I'd like to look into doing some flares.

It'll look something like this. I started on it, but it's been on the back burner until I take care of other projects.

Signs of autumn have definitely arrived. While it was cold, wet & windy outside I did some conceptualizing with line tape inside. These rockers came with the car when I bought it, but they need to be tweeked just a smudge.
