I have to mold the fenders and make myself a set

I have to finish the quarterpanel rub strips, and mold those

I have to finish molding my RS replica wing, and then repair it

I have to build and mold an RS replica front grille

I have to make a shaved hatch trim strip

Then I have to paint everything on that list, install it all, wetsand and buff the whole car, and get an alignment. all in 32 days.
That's alot in 32 days!!

wetsanded and high-build primed the rub strips tonight, and tried to get a couple pics of the wheels.....I'll get better ones once I can move the car around.....it's sitting probably about an inch higher that it will, it had been up in the air on jackstands for the entire winter with the suspension unloaded and it was just set down off the jack.

And you have to rely on mother nature to provide you with decent temps, right? I have faith in you that you will get it done, you seem like one of those people that do better under pressure

well, I got the car out for a spin to go get gas and snap a few pics of it on the new wheels....









needs to be a little lower and roughly 10mm spacers.

Set out to mold both front fenders today, and it simply did not happen. got one side mostly done, will need to add some layers once I can pull it off the car and lay it on it's side.
I'm honestly getting really burnt out working on this car so much and trying to get these molds taken care of. I'm really starting to doubt I'll be able to finish it in time for Spring Into Focus....







molded it on the car because I was concerned without it all being mounted up that the molds would make fenders that would be difficult to pull into correct fitment. Going to have to pull these off and then make a bolt-on flange to get the shape of the inner fender where it bolts in behind the door and all that. It's supposed to rain tomorrow, so I'm hoping it cures in time to pop it off tonight. I'm trying hard to stay motivated, but I'm beginning to resent the car/labor.

In my honest opinion, I think you should paint the wings, and just enjoy the car now.

Sod making pattern parts if its going to destroy your soul.
