    Lambo Door Flares

    Doors do not line up so I decided to
    to transfer the angle from the
    rear fender air scoop to the door in
    an effort to fix the door.

    It's an old Triagle-G body.

    Calling it a "kit" very loosely...I got it super cheap and
    knew what I was getting into so I am happy.

    Man, when you get done with all these modifications you are doing, you really should think about molding the entire car and offering kit bodies of that design. It looks awesome!

    Thanks for the compliment. It only counts if I finish
    the car. Anyhow, someone company could easily copy
    it and change the body and trump me out of business.
    :

    It is an idea to play around with. I have never made
    molds myself but have seen it done by my boat builder
    friend. It would be 15 or 20 molds because of all the
    curves and small stuff. If I did decide to go the molds
    route, I think I would just sell the body and let builders
    get the interior from somewhere else. Shoot the windshield
    on my "kit" is a standard Nisan Maxima and costs $250 $300
    AFTER CUTS and smoothing. Also it takes regular Sebring door glass.

    Well, honestly I have to see how *close* the window glass
    comes out. I have an idea to try and use a standard
    window slider and motor from a Sebring from junk yard.
    The doors are so messed up and wacky that I will have to redo the inner as well.

    How much would someone pay for just the body and deck lids?

    I would guess no more than $4k.

    But to offer something unique, how much would they
    pay if it came finished in carbon fiber or carbon kevlar?
    $6K-$7K?

    Most lambo style kits... just the fiberglass body... go for a minimum of $5000. Kevlar would be cool, but expensive to buy and hard to work with.

    Diablos are pretty hot sellers, and one with the style you are making looks a lot better than the real one... in my opinion.

    Very cool work. I love it....
    But now for the technical question....
    There was a post in the tech section about fiberglass, and the consensus was to use matt. It looks like you're using cloth. I was wondering why you chose cloth, and what weight it is, and how it is to work with on "larger" pieces with the compound curves.

    thanx, and good job.

    Good eye RCR,

    Well, everywhere else I did foam and glass I used 3 layers
    of MATT.

    This time however, I was just building out a shallow filler
    area and so what I did was one layer of MATT covered with
    2 layers of cloth. I used the cloth to make sure I get as
    smooth a raw finish as I could get. I used two layers
    of cloth because I know I would be sanding half the top
    layer of cloth away in the smoothing process.

    Again, good eye man...
