    • My gal had a business trip to LA and was able to tag along and stop by and see Murci-Meís G28.

      This is the second time to view the car and it was just as impressive as the first time I saw it over 3 years ago in January 2016.

      Enjoyed my chat with Michael and picked up some great ideas for the REDO, plus a million pictures of his build. Thanks Michael!

      Canít wait to get back at it!

          • To get the glass to lay correctly against the inner door took a lot of sanding. The upper door seal flange also had to be increased.. again

            • "NEW" inner doors have a warped bottom.

              I see fiber glassing in my future.

                  • Definitely lots of tedious, repetitive work... but you're doing a great job.

                    Just a little trick in case you weren't aware: polyester resin doesn't stick to melamine, so when making large flat panels like your door bottoms, a 4' x 8' sheet of pressed wood with melamine on one side makes a perfect mold. Once cured, it's easy to lift off the new flat panel which can be cut to whatever shape you want. Your door bottoms would have been a perfect use for this trick.

                      Bloozberry That is a great tip but I didnt have any at the time. What I used as polisocyanuarte foam covered in high temp release film. The foam cuts easily with a razor knife and I grated/sanded it down on one edge so it slid in between the metal frame and fiberglass door. Used some steel to firm it up.

                      Definitely use some melamine later in the build as it seems it would leave a smoother finish. The release film can wrinkle is it isnt pulled tight.

                      thanks!

                      • Looking good. i certainly do not miss that glass and sand and glass and sand work. Makes a huge difference to the finished product but what a mess and boat load of work. I still find sanding dust on higher up surfaces in my garage and I haven't done any glassing in almost 4 years......

                        Keep it up as it will really make a big difference to the finished product.

                        Enjoy

                        I also used a lot of heating duct aluminum tape. Works the same as Blooz noted about melamine. The tape would be used to seal some corners and edges etc. and be able to peal right off.

                          • Made the upper frame for the door.

                            Test fitted the OEM inner sweeper and side channels.

                            I can see that some adjustments will have to be made steel door frame to get the it all to fit correctly
