  1. thanks man. its been a project of mine for many years. but i think i want to move on to something else. Where and how much? Savannah Ga through the Ocala FL Area.
  2. appreciate it man. i got lucky and bought these a couple years back when KMC was getting bought out by American Racing. So i got a pretty good deal on them
  3. I have 5% all the way around with the windshield tinted at 50% and a 5% strip. You really can't see inside at night and you're not going to see inside in the daytime unless the sun is directly in front of the windshield
  4. I made a seperate topic for the headliner I made, but I figured I'd add it to he build log also. This project i started about 6 months ago and finally finished it and installed it before Slamfest. Here are some pictures along the way, i changed the location of the plexi glass twice before i was happy with the results and had done a shit load of sanding. if i was to do it again, i would wrap the vinyl better because most of the imperfections came from the wrap, but it was my first time doing a big fiberglass piece like this. Started with a frame I used ponte which is like a material used in like under armour shirts i guess. i also used staples to attach it to the wood frame, but i would suggest hot glue or something that can dry very fast. I forgot to take pictures throughout the fiberglass stage, but i had to lay down a whole bunch of plastic to protect the interior from the fiberglass as it drips off. once i was able to take the frame down it took about 3 layers of fiberglass mat to get it nice and solid. finished product
  5. thanks guys. appreciate it. haha yea. never ending sanding. most of the imperfections came from too much glue in some places also. it globbed up, cuz im a noob with wrapping. i used weldwoods contact cement, but when i layed it down with a brush i put too much in some places. you really dont need a lot at all. i also got a lot of information from Car Audio Fabrications Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CarAudioFabrication/featured
