  • Had a set of G28 door cards which are far from the look the REDO needs. Also a set of mangled OEM replicas that were cut in the center to make them fit the opening of the G28

    • Starting with foam to make a plug.

      Lots of adjusting and then bondo sanding etc.

      once the plugs were done made some molds
      And had to sand the molds

      • many adjustments to the parts pulled from the molds. Cut and adjust, grind fiberglass repeat!!

        lost track of how many times and what was done to make them decent.

        be so much easier if G28 was the same size as OEM

        • The REDO door cards

          Passenger side turn out pretty nice - learned from my mistakes on the drivers side

          Driver side - going to have to make another mold of the main piece for the card as it is pretty chunky as it was the first one I did

                  • door car installed and on to fitting the OEM replica dash

                    A Murci Me instrument pod came with the REDO

                    had to rework the opening to make it fit

                    Using a template, The dash was cut in two places and fiber glassed back together

                    Then adjust the width using foam and fiber glassing

                    • The OEM replica dash ends had to be cut off and a portion of the dash removed so it would fit length wise. The space and angle has to be right, so hopefully looks like the OEM car

                      There was some empty space on the top of the dash that had to be filled in, more fiber glassing.

                      • Need a airbag piece for the passenger side.

                        Not sure if I make a mold for this after final adjustment, and possible glove box or just delete it all together

                        • then a bunch of body work.

                          • Nothing like work to get in the way of progress on the REDO

                            back at it after about 3 weeks. Lots of fiddly issues in mounting the the dash, console, grab handle and the lower dash panel. Fabricated some brackets, blah blah blah

                            If work doesn't get in the way, it will be on to the drivers side
