Working on getting the tail lights straight. What i had done was just a close mock of what it was supposed to be but now its time to get them straight and true. First i routered out 2 templates out of wood for the shape i wanted and screwed them to the back.
You can see by the spacing that i need to fill with glass and sand a bunch !

Hey, night, the hood is a fiero hood. I bought a 04 mustang cobra hood and cut the center section out. Then i narrowed it to 1.5" between the vents and then cut and bonded it to the fiero hood. There a similar vents out there but i thought this one was the best, thou not the cheapest.
After Contemplating the next "mod" , after eyeing the car for hours from every angle and wanting to do something with the rear windows i decided to add some " hips" , to bring in the rear alittle and apply alittle more shape to her body. 1st ...remove rear quarter windows and hesitate !
Wash rinse and repeat to the other side. Took alittle longer because it had to be the same as the other side. I ended up triming off 1" off each side of the rear lid to accomadate it to open. I will add what i cut to the car to fill in the gaps. As for now i narrowed the roof spoiler and lowered it abit from the height it was last time. Was alittle to high and from the front it looked wierd. Now lower you can barely see it from the front and the side view looks swooping.
Hey Exoticse ! , Glad you like it. I wasnt sure at first and i think i have only seen this mod done on chop tops. I actually really like it. I did not remove the rear clip to glass the inside. I glassed all around it and its plenty strong. I used 3 layers of matt on all bonds, and sometimes maybe more in places. Its prob a good thing Dean didnt do it cause you might not of got'n your beutiful ride back ! Your timing was perfect with bringing her home. There are more tweeking ideas in the mist and would love to see what you may do with it.
P.S. Think we might both be getting our wheels around the same time !!
