    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

    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

    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?

    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

    One thing I noticed on the passenger side it the length of the OEM Replica rocker panel...seemed long

    So I cut of the finished edge in the front of the rocker

    the cut off the amount needed, to get the rear of the rocker where I wanted it to be

    Then Grind, CSM flip Grind CSM grind CSM

    dont forget to acetone !
