Happy with the parts
I have never had much to do with fiberglass before but this is a lot stiffer than I was expecting it to be

So my list of bits I need is getting shorter

Still need the buckets to go around head lights in the nose cone
Need the hinge part the doors pivot on
Need lower valance
Need latch tray
Not 100 % sure about using the fender seal gasket set up or might try to move the nose cone closer to the fenders and live with out them

I got the Z brackets just not pictured

I don't see the 2 ribs in the lower part of the nose cone for the Z-brackets to attach to.....

or am I thinking of something else??

it was the first thing i looked for, too

The last picture I posted has some metal parts nailed to the inside of my crate

Don made the mounting ribs but did not get them attached yet to the nose cone
I also got a set of the brackets with the proper step in them that go on the car's frame bumper mounts that the lower edge of the Z brackets mount to

Well I have made a little progress

I made some rubber gaskets from a sheet of rubber for a pond liner for between the wing and 1/4 panel

Taped my cardboard pattern down where the 4 holes for each brace to go
I had already made one hole on each side to test fit the wing

Said o well and drilled holes in the top of my 1/4

Finally mounted the wing back on my car

I have wing washers ( fiberglass) but still have to make up the trunk braces

It was funny as after each hole I drilled all I could see is a green glow from the green paint inside the trunk  2thumbs

Parked in the driveway in the fall
Other than my car needs a bath it looks cool to see the wing in the rear view when driving on the road   2thumbs
