      • Made some brackets to mount the bat wings to the body.

        Got the actuators installed and the bat wings go up and down with the engine bonnet closed. The actuators hold the bat wings nice and firm in up or down position. Still need to wire up with relays.

        Had to cut the fiberglass on the body and fiber glassed from below to remove the gap form OEM sized bat wing to G28 Body. Ill do the drivers side next and a bunch of body work to to get the bonnet, bat wings and body gaps correct

                • Major milestone of the REDO, Actually drove the car in and out of the shop

                  Cleaned up the shop, and will cut the passenger door skin off, so I can start that project over the winter months.

                          • Added Dura Glass to the top side of the engine bonnet, to get it flush with the body, and also fixed the gap.

                            Ground down through the reverse side, through the two layers of the bonnet to the dura glass, and into the dura glass to get 1/8 of an inch or so thickness.

                            Then reinforced with CSM

                            • Applied some rage gold. Maybe be a bit to much as I sanded off a ton of

                              Second time applying did a better job and focused on one side.

                              • Back on the REDO after some R&R in a warm dry place

                                Finished welding, prepped and painted my rear engine hatch and bat wing structure.

                                Installed some struts on the rear hatch

                                worked some more on the gaps, getting there
