Its hard to tell from the pics, but it looks like the passenger front fender has smooth molding and the rest of the car has ribbed. That fender also looks much cleaner than the rest of the car, so it may have been replaced. If it has, then I would take a hard look at that corner of the car for any frame damage.

It IS hard to tell for certain from the pics, but in the very first pic posted on page 1, it looks to me like all the molding is ribbed. This also makes the most sense, as having several sets of molds that make these fenders in my possesion, there are none that produce the round molding. That's not to say there aren't some out there that do, but I've never seen them.

What a steal of a deal! I'm sure you got that entire car, (running or not-doesn't matter body looks GOOD!), for less than half of what it cost to buy just the body kit new! Ok, now do you want to let go of your Mera for the same kind of deal?

Already have dibs. Besides we need to keep both the notch and gt in pa so we can cruise them both. Better yet, just let me long term borrow it so people can enjoy both at the same time

I'd say I am to... I just have a taste for imsa's as much as I love my mera body it would most likely be the 1st one to go before my 2 imsa's every one gets on me for picking them up and telling me I only need one project but the truth of the matter is I'm not picking them up to jump right into a project on them. I'm getting them because I know at least with me they won't be turned into some rice burner out racing civics and crap. Once I get them both on the road the will be lucky if they make it over 80 mph.. that just have a special place with me and I hope to be able to hand them down to my kids in the future

And honestly if I can find a stage 2 or banshee body in my price range I'll grab that to... I'm just fortunate to find what in my mind are the 2 top model imsa body's.. funny thing is between the go and the stage 3 body there is not much of a difference. From the doors forward they are both the same

I kinda sorta cleaned it, Still needs a lot of work, the paint is coming up in flakes in certain parts so a paint job will be needed down the road but that was to be ecpected,






BTW off topic, The 308's bumber has not been repaird, rather my mechanic drilled some small holes in it and zip tied it to stay up intil it gets fixed, Looks legit,

I don't know what he paid, but the craigslist ad had it listed at $2k. Deal of the decade if you ask me!
