  • Over all I like the FGP parts but they put this nasty black primer on. The gel coat is to thin. So sand off the black primer

    Once the black primer is removed you can see all the things they had to fix. Used some rage to fix some issues

                • Got the fuel lid on, added an end piece so in can be fastened with a small recessed screw to the body.

                  Added studs to the driver sail panel, dura glass then CSM

                  Anyone know how the actuator is wired up? I can get it to open, is the close wired into the ignition switch?

                  • front trunk lid

                    while back I spent some time modifying an OEM replica inner front trunk lid to fit the G28. I abandoned that and started over as it just wasn't working

                    made a metal frame, cut bent and welded to match the curve of the fiberglass lid ...treated for rust prevention. Added Latch to frame

                    Used panel bond to attached to fiberglass lid

                    Made foam inner trunk lid glued in placed, sanded to shape

                    Fiberglassed over that

                    Rage gold then Rage Ultra to smooth everything out- love the rage ultra!!!

                    Painted flat black

                    here is a picture of the REDO trunk when I went to look at it to buy it.......

                    what was I thinking?














                    what the REDO Looked liek when I bought it

                    • Hi Simple Man
                      Holy Shit !!!! I buzzed through some of your build and I am going to say it Again Holy Shit , you have more patience than anyone I know , kudos to you for sticking with it , I don't think I could have .
                      It looks like it going to work out in the end , the car you started with is the reason I think that the phrase Kit Car got such a bad reputation .
                      Good job on Redoing everything , hang in there !!!!
                      Cheers Falcata
