      nice job! how did it go? any problems/surprises?

      nah they're pretty easy... just time really (as i'm sure you know). i bonded the 2 with 8115, then used a short strand filler (duraglas) followed by polyflex. i also deleted the 2 lower fins in the front openning but it's not very easy to see in the picture. i have some better pics somewhere but i can't seem to find them.

      Nice job on those molds man. I am planning on doing this during the upcoming winter. But i currently have all my rub strips off to sand and paint black. I am also goin to shave the 2 holes in the front rub strip from the license plate. How did you fill them? Thanks for your help.

      basically used the same products that I did the blend with.
      Back fill holes with the mesh & Maxim then level and feather with the Polyflex
      good luck

      Man this is an old thread but the work is great!!

      Wish I could afford to buy a nice front lip and blend it. I want to see you shave the rub strip as well

      Damn I just realized this is a bump from the grave...

      Was a little excited at first till I read through the whole thread and realized the almost 8month+ of inactivity...
