yeah, I'm working on a design for it....it's going to be nearly identical to the RS oem upper grill, but no ford badge area....can use the stock ford badge off existing grill or enjoy it badge-less. Once I make it I'll mold it and make extras

probably going to be a couple weeks, I've run short on money to re-up on supplies such as resin and gelcoat....buying this stuff in small quantities is silly when I plan to do so much of it and buying in bulk costs a lot of money up front. I would've been in a better boat had I not ruined the paintjob that cost $700 in materials :-/

doing things the right way is expensive, even if you're doing all the labor yourself. DuPont chromabase is fantastic paint though, and certainly worth spending the extra money on compared to Nason and other cheaper lines of paint.

le sigh.

I have time
I understand about doing it right!! And I know how much good paint cost
I don't mind the nason clear coat 3800 I believe
I've use DuPont before and since I do most of my painting Ina garage or outside it doesn't dry as fast as the nason does

I plan to have a COMPLETE kit setup so someone can get everything they need to make the RS conversion all at once from one source. My goal was to have a kit where you can drop off your car with the parts in the crate at a bodyshop and pick up a completed RS a few weeks later without sourcing all types of really hard-to-find parts.
This would be awesome.

2 questions, you gonna make/need the bumper to fender brackets and what about the wheel well liners?
