Popped it out of the mold today:

Trimmed it all up:

fitted the side marker:

it didn't lay out as perfect as I had hoped, there's some dead spots (air bubbles) along the lip of the wheel opening where the matt didn't lay all the way flat up to the gel coat, so I'll have to do some touch-up work with a little fiber reinforced body filler along the lip, but overall it didn't come out too bad.

I put together the mold for the other side and just layed the gel coat, gotta go back out in about 35mins to start laying fiberglass.

I figure if I can get the other side trimmed up and ready tomorrow after work, then lay up one of the quarterpanels tomorrow, pop that out & trim tuesday and then lay up the other quarterpanel friday I can have a front clip on the car and start marking up the car for where to cut out the stock quarters on the rear.

stay tuned!
