    For the receiver.

    To start with I used 3/4" square stock to make a frame which also mounts the fenders in place.

      A steel plate was constructed to hold the assembly in place. This unit also had a remote cable which ends up under the dash board.

          I would suggest grinding or sanding the surface before applying epoxy or resin to your fiberglass. You are only going to get a mechanical bond to cured fiberglass. The epoxy or resin needs to have something to bite into.

            Regarding your door project:

            U-pol "B" is what I use ... Similar like isopon p40... Works like a charm.. Buy an accurate scale for measuring hardner vs paste when making bigger batches...

            Fibreglass kits like, for example, motip has.. I do not recommend quality of the resin and hardner ar not so good and above all they are more expensive...

            What I would buy if I where you:
            - RESPIRATOR(!!) ( +plastic bucket with cover to keep it in when not using it)
            - Protective suit
            - safety glasses
            - box of rubber gloves 100 pcs
            - box of wooden tounge supressors for mixing and applying
            - cheapest bruches in various sizes
            - save all your yoghurt cups for mixing
            - vebtilator to blow out the air out of the garage or you will smell resin for 2 days..

            - Around 5 m2 of 225 gram glass matt and 5m2 fleese
            - around 3L of resin / mekp hardner
            - gelcoat in case you wat to make molds
            - 1L of acetone
            - rollers small and wide for rolling air out.
            - 2 tins of U-pol 'B' 1,85 L or similar product
            - 1 large paper roll (like a large toilet paper roll) on your wall.


            Last but not least:
            -1 pin-up calendar for 2014..

            I think when you have this sitting in your garage you will be able to get most small stuff done..

            Cheers

              What i also recommend is reading Macgyvers entire thread as well as this one...

              http://extremeoc.co.uk/index.php/topic,1692.480.html

              This guy is building a rear engine 360... This guy builds race cars for a living and owns a body shop... Have learned much from him also.

              All threads on here and other forums are valueble but i think when you go through these it will give you a good knowledge on how to do stuff right..

                not made much progress this weekend, due to the issues I had with the handle mechanism :-/
                strugging with adjusting them also so will have to revisit next week, gladly managed to get them bonded on thanks for your help :-)
                heres a pic of this weeks progress :-)

                    Wow the body looks great , I like that you keep the factory metal structure
                    aNd just bond panels on top, should be a safe car with good door gaps etc

                      Hi cutlass442, that's the main reason I chose this kit, as it's my first build, it's a compromise as it's not 100% accurate but it's close enough for me, can't wait to get it done :-)
