I don't know where you get all of your ideas but you do have some good ones, looking forward to see how it turns out.

Damn, that sanded out pretty good GB! That stuff was pretty stubborn, did you end up letting it cure a little more before you got back at it?

Munch came by and gave me a hand tonight and we managed to get a little bit done

Sanded the flanges on the rear bumper and quarter in preparation of bonding them together.



Munch inspecting my work.



Look Ma, no seam A little more sanding and filling and she'll be ready for primer.



More tomorrow...

Gary I couldn't read the product labels in the pics... what exactly are you using to do this? Are you using the factory metal brackets for support or ditching them? Looking good so far.

The black adhesive you see is 3M 4240 plastic adhesive. Don't remember all the other numbers. Keeping the brackets.

Default Weekend Update

Here's one side all made up with some initial filling done.



First coat of finishing material.



Munch on the job setting one of the splash guards.



Driver's side with seam filled and C6 splash guard molded in. Just about ready for primer.



Shot a quick coat of primer on the frenched license area to see how things were looking. So far, so good

It's going to look sweet with the seams gone but I think my favorite part is the molded in spash guards. They looked really good before but now with the added radius where they blend in to the fender they look friggin awesome!

Kinda looks like a cow.

I'd have left it like that and done that same thing to the rest of the car.

He could probably get some free Chik-Fil-A out of the deal too!

Saw this project the other day and I must say Its quite impressive.Just about every idea that you could come up with he has already done. Its one thing to dream up an idea but it takes so much more to make it happen and for it to be done right. Ive got a lot of respect for Gary even only meeting him once. Keep up the good work!!!
