I'm not a fan of side air intakes, but that's looking awesome!

Love that blue, too! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)

Keep it up! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Wow (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)!!! Does the lizard skin need carpet or paint to protect it? or is it robust enough to stand on its own?

I am considering second skin audio butyl mats or bedliner with carpet over it or something like this lizard skin.

Your experience will be much appreciated! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Looking good ! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) Thanks for shaing. I like the side air intakes. The aftermarket convertible 914s had those, they located aft the door handle, IIRC

The final texture is just like rhino lining. I am sure it would stand up. But, the nice thing is you can paint right over it. I will probably add some sound material to the low spots just to even out the floor as well as the back panel.
There are 4 layers on the fire wall. Two sound and two heat on each side. Only two layers of sound and heat on the floor.
my rear bumper just arrived. But, I have to go do some work downtown. Maybe a mock up later today...

@ Jim, yes, I almost did the same. But, given the size, I had to drop them down a bit. They have 3 inch intakes behind them. Same with the NACAducts. The brake intake are 2 inch.

Thanks for the info effutuo101 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)!! I think I will put some deadener mats on the big flat spots, go over everything (including the mats) with that lizard skin then paint it black.

You are doing a great job man!!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

@ Ferg! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif)
any new projects?
@ goth. spray lizard skin first. then put on matting. it must be sprayed on primer or paint. Jeggs has it cheap. the gun is really cheap. Also, for what you are doing, you might want to find somebody to go in with you and share the product. It comes in 2 gallon containers.

Ok so the lizard skin must go on pretty smooth then? ........ if so, what you recommend sounds like a good aproach ..... the deadener mat I will be using is the damplifier pro ................ thanks man!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Not really. It depends on how you adjust the fun. It goes on a lot like Rhino with a serious texture. Not smooth like paint. More like a textured wall in your house.

There is an adhesive that has to go on bare metal and the fiberglass. I will ping Jon for the name. Once set it has to be ground off. It has a dual piston calking gun that mixes the chemicals as you pump the trigger

I don't recall what it's called. One of my good friends that runs an autobody supply shop told us what to use for this.
