Your car is looking good. It looks like my car has the same fenders that you are using. I didnt install them but car had them on it when I bought it. What size wheels are you going with? Look forward to the finsih product.

I used Lizard skin on Lotus 7 replica and it works great. It is fairly durable as well. Its nothing like bed liner material as far as abraision resistance but should work great where you applied it. I was going to use the Lizard on my project as well since I have it left over from the Ultralite. It defenitely kills the noise. it will drive like a new car.

I think Panel Bond Adhesive is what you are talking about. It is seriously strong stuff. We bonded a couple a 16g pieces together to test it and put it in a frame machine and pulled it. The metal tore but not at the bond.

I didn't. But, once you have everything fitted up, you lay the adhesive on both sides, clecko back into place and wait. in about 8 hours, you won't be able to get it off. Pretty neat stuff.
If somebody hits the fender, it will be me with a grinding wheel to get the material off and replace the fender with the same process.

I used the same stuff on my flares. Works great and easy to use. It seals the metal too, that is why I used it.

yes, that stuff is really good.


I built lighter intakes this morning...more glass work to do on the fenders now. but, in all I lost some weight, so a plus on that.

To do:

measure and drill rivet holes for side intakes
finish primer of doors and front bumper
final fit of rocker covers

later this week.
install hood pin mech
fit mirrors and prep
door handle check and prep
Media blast eyebrows, headlight covers and primer
Media blast intake and paint
Paint headlight brackets and misc parts

Next week
final prep and paint of NACA ducts and intakes
paint mirrors
So much to do!

As long as she has legs a little bit of bedunkedunk in the trunk is a good thing...my wife said that 914's must have junk in the trunk. She likes certain colors in a narrow body, but, for the most part and for us...it must have much back.

The Fiskar looks really cool. I just hope the issues I've heard of don't damage the rep. I'd like to see more from this group.
