Well....due to my landlord selling his property, looks like I'm looking for a new shop this month instead of working on my molds !

Oh well.....I needed more space anyway..change can be good, I just didn't want to add another 1500.00$ a month to bills already....
( I'll duplicate this comment in the other thread.)

Not a huge dent in the game really. I think I may have it narrowed down to a few local places. More elbow room and electrical etc.

As Martha say's..." It's a good thing".lol.

Too bad you can't send me the wing to laminate so you could end up with the V-weave Hood, Roof, Hatch and Wing !!

But no worries.....standard 2x2 Twill weave will still look great !

Damn... never thought of that!
I could have shipped it direct to you.
It pains me to pass up the V-weave.

If I make some rough molds for rear widebody arches, can you produce them? I'd really like to create something out of fiberglass that would simply build upon the stock rear fenders, and then once you attach them to the stocks, you could create a mold that would be a complete one piece replacement....

Price them at $1500-$2000 and they'll sell like crack

Ironically I was talking to someone the other day about a street version of a milder looking GT car kit. Something that would allow 1-3" more tracking width of wheels and tires.
One thing to consider in going this route is the fact that inner liners have to be fashioned or lost altogether to work. That would be in itself a load of molds.

Also to consider is the front and rear covers having to either merge additionally or have aggressively styled lines to keep the covers as stock. Which usually looks off.( at least to my eyes).

Full bodykits for 2k will never make the creator any living. Just use a lot of time and materials up.

I still want to look into it................

It would have to be a "go big or go home" option. I want something to fit 18 x 12s in the back with 335mm tires. Like the Vipers run

Thats what I'm thinking too. No reason to mess with the lines of such a great design unless its purposeful change.Race ready.

With the amount of HP you have, you're going to need it!

The materials and resin system I use does not react to UV exposure like your worried about. Your describing Polyester resin or non-uv protected clear coated items it would seem.
