    512 build video

    i have just started on another 512 build for a paying customer,the first one ive ever been commisioned to do[im wondering how much ill lose on this deal lol].ive just cut he car at this point ,i was just wondering if there would be any intrest on anyones part ,in buying a build video for a small charge[im not trying to make megabucks off a video]id just like to cover the costs of tapes and labor for a man to film me as i give instructions[$15-$20ballpark].i was wanting to cover the basics ,lengthening the chassis with the raising the rear section to make the roofline correct,bodypanel mounting techniques,maybe some basic fitting techniques,solving some of the problems associated with poorly made panels etc.the first kit i built gave me all kinds of headaches and ive been a bodyman for 20 years,i always wondered what hobbyists with little or no experience did when they ran into not trying to be an expert or anything,id just like to share a couple of lessons ive learned building 3 replicas.if anyones intrested let me know.

    Mike, better wear one of those big plastic noses with the black glasses attached, just in case Big Italian Brother is watching! lol. Hey, think about it- Big nose, thick black glasses, you could pass yourself off as Enzo's long lost son! Seriously, do it mike , it will help a lot of people who get stuck and discouraged with a build. I'd watch my grainey IFG video again & again to stay motivated and interested in the car.
    Remember, there is always next year.

    Definately sounds like a good Idea,(your name in the movie is Marieo or Loueegie :P).Also put the video on E-bay,you could bring in more bucks $$$.

    me and a friend [camcorder freak buddy of mine started on it this morning].pretty much covered the lengthenng,raising the rear section 1 and half inches to make the roofline correct gonna start early again in the morning.i think ill work on hamann type taillamp panel first,showing how to position the tailights properly and how to make the taillamps recessed also how to make the light pockets,kind of a basic how to custom fiberglass 101. i also have a poorly made rear bumper i bought years ago[my first kit what a mistake]from a southern florida "mfr" that will remain unnamed, hes been bashed enough on this site[and also its not part of my kit that i sell] i thought id mount it to my car and show the mistakes with it and how to correct them,i think that will help the guys that might otherwise give up on a poorly made kit,and if i have any time left tomorrow,maybe some body panel mounting tricks and techniques
