Getting nice and flat for paint.Having issue with Fly1 parts.The fenders flex when you put hood down.The lip on fender to mount is thin and not as wide as factory.Added wider and thicker fiberglass lip for mounting.Modified and strengthened mounts on car.

Slugging away on the body work.Nissan put a lot of clear on but it is soft.Does not have hard glass finish.Working on rear bumper.The rear bumber has half the paint of the fenders.Why is that?

Low Rez picks since photobucket will no longer let me link unless I pay their ridiculous price.

Congratulations on the progress of your build. On the body and paint work take your time on it as it will turn out best when you do.

If you want a replacement, Imgur works, for the most part, really well. Mobile app for it is OK too.

Paint turned out great. I would love to be able to do that myself. Good job.

Default Spoiler extension mock up

Continue body work theme.
Roadsters do not have Factory spoiler.I liked that spoiler look.I bought one on line that was similar look to factory but different.Some work to get a factory look.I saw CF spoiler extension for factory cars.I thought it would look good to have the spoiler red and then the black CF extension.
After 4 attempts this is the spoiler extension mock up.Clean up a few spots and make mold from this.
With luck will get CF extension that looks good roadster.

I love that mines style add-on for the factory spoiler... I've been hoping one of the chinese knockoff mass producers would start copying it..but seems like all you can get on the cheap is the duckbill knockoffs.
