Time for some fiberglass. I wish i could hook up wires right now and listen to the system, but i know me, and i won't rest until this thing looks good too. So here we go.

This is the reason i almost never throw any scraps away. Gotta be a real worthless piece of scrap to ever make it to the trash at my shop :D

cutting some 3/16" strips for "framing" around the window and trunk hinges.

IMG_4931_zps05ee9c2d.jpg

A little Kerf Cut to get it to bend over the radius just right. I got it wet too so it was not as brittle.

the NEWEST SMD product about to be released. SMD SunFlash. Its UV acitvated. No catalyst required. You work right out of the jug. One brush, one cup, all day every day. No waste. Take your time....and when ready, bring it out to the sun and it sets up in about 1 minute, 2 tops. Its so easy, it makes it FUN to fiberglass! I am getting my packaging, labeling and all the fine details hammered out but yes, i will have my OWN RESIN soon! Watch out for it!

So now that it's glassed, i always put some short strand "kitty hair" over the top and let it set up. This way, when i pop the mold off, it holds its shape better. I ran out of my favorite body filler "Rage Extreme" so i had to stop for the weekend, as no store that carries it is open past 12pm on Saturday. Here is the progress pics so far though. I am starting to really like it myself. I have to resist the urge to pull the plastic off the plexi glass (the blue plastic you see in the middle is clear plexi if you didn't know)

Always ugly as hell in this stage LOL

What a MESS!

IMG_4968_zpsba072911.jpg

the black marks are where i am going to trim the edges off with a sander. This way it fits perfectly behind the rubber boot.
