It looks like everything from the nose back is one piece, save for the taillight panel, hood, and deck lid. How do you remove that if you need to? Besides carefully. I think it gives the car a great look without any seams, but I'd fear not being able to work on any part of my car if I did something like that. Keep up the great work. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

Boz i am a biiiiiig wing guy, but looking at your project i am afraid the wing might just block that fabulous decklid work you have done.

If it were me i might consider some 5 inch wing stands. Then again i could be totally wrong and it just might be the angle of the pic.

P.S. Congrats on the construction zone !!

now on the drivers side i didnt like on the passenger side how the top of the vent was square so i made it rounded on top and i think it flows much better.......then i moved to the passenger side and added glass to it to create the same "curve"

I was really excited to finally put in the lights into the 512 bumper. What you dont see is the 9 hrs it took to get the fit right. Dont get me wrong, this is a great bumper. But the gaps around the lights i wasnt happy with and its much easier to fix them now. So walla !!

ok...back to the rear again...now that i got some sanity back ! I wanted the valance to be curved so i got some 12" sonic tube and cut it to size. It creates a concave fit to the lower spoiler. I then glued wood to the inside to create depth to the mold....lots of tape, cutting and glueing to get it somewhat to shape.

after pulling it out of the mold i glassed it to the car.....you'll also notice i cut the rear deck behind the light sockets. This will be glassed to the light pockets and the hatch will be seamed there.
