    G28 Roadster Engine Lid Pictures Needed

    I'm currently working on my G28 roadster engine lid and I'm trying to get the fit and finish correct up around the headrest section.

    My lid was in pretty bad shape and it really didn't fit at all. I've began sectioning it apart and I'm now in the process of building the tube frame for underneath and glassing everything back together.

    If you own a Murci roadster, can you email me or post some pictures of how the front of the lid fits up around the headrest section of the car and down around the side vents leading up to the bat wings?

    Pictures of the lid in both the up and down postion would be great.

    Thanks guys... I don't know what I'd do with the support of the members on this site.

    Chris

    this is how the replica deck lid should fit ,not my car, i sold the humps an deck lid to them 4 years ago when they made the molds for this car !

    i have molds for these parts roadster engine cover ,rear trunk an humps behind the seat this will also convert a G24 over ,thats what this car started from
    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    Thanks IKR, that is one sharp car!

    I like how they hinged the engine lid correctly (from the back) as well as hinged the trunk lid section which is actually fixed in place on the real car. On a Fiero kit, there is quite a bit of space back there that can be utilized for storage. This is exactly how I'm doing my car and I can honeslty say that getting the right hinges and mounting points right so that everything opens ok (just finishing this up).

    What I really need is some close up pictures of the headrest area on a finished car to check out the options for finishing this area. The original car is really different from the kit in this area and I'm looking for options for finshing it out a little closer to OEM. I'm not looking for exact however I think this area can be worked a little closer to the real thing than it is currently.

    When you said you made a headrest section, are you talking about the cover that goes over the headrest section the decklid rests on? If so, do you still have the molds for this and can make another one for sale? I'm attaching pictures of the real deal and what I have to work with.

    Anyone have pictures they can share, I'm at a stopping point right now until I get this figured out.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    A couple pictures of the framing and hinge work I've done so far. Please keep in mind that some of this is currently tacked together as I figure out final positioning and measurements.

    Thanks dratts.. that's what I was needing.

    Here is the link to the photobucket if anyone esle is looking for the link: http://s531.photobucket.com/albums/dd358/dratts2/

    I found a couple of pictures there that shows the headrest section painted black and the engine lid fitted into it which looks pretty nice (pictures below). I'm wondering how it would look covered in carbon fiber and finished off with a high gloss clear. :

    Anyone make a cover for this area?

    Thanks again,

    Chris

    I've been told it's a g28. It came with a crappy g24 interior that is being replaced.
