I'm so excited for the wing moulds to be finished! I'm definitely going to buy one! Please let me know how much you'll sell them for!

I'm probably going to sell them around $350 shipped I think... for materials and time that's decent I feel.....if that's way too high for people to be buying it, I'll have to try to think of ways to cut cost of production down. I'd like to be competitive with pricing for the fake replicas that GPwerks is making...

That's a great deal. As soon as they're ready and I have the extra money, I'm definitely going to buy one!

mini project: got the quarter panel rub strips shaped up and ready for some high-build....Didn't have any adhesion promoter around so decided to spray with krylon fusion I had sitting around....going to wetsand again after it dries and spray down with filler primer (probably tomorrow)

used the driver-side that I already cut to shape as a template for the passenger side, then filled in the spots where I broke into the voids in the casting and wetsanded in 320







then sprayed with the krylon fusion







for anyone unfamilier, these started out life as the rear rubstrips from a 4dr sedan focus....I cut them to fit the RS quarterpanel. I don't know how the "plastic weld" epoxy will hold up long-term....so I might buy casting urethane to make flexible molds of these and make solid ones from two-part urethane mix (and then sell replicas LOL)

Just brought them in....I couldn't get all of the scratches totally out pre-paint because of how soft the urethane is once you're through the paint....so I'll let these cure more over night and wetsand them with 400 and filler-prime them and repeat until smooth/perfect.

ship me your car and give me $6k, I'll build a complete RS replica (make the parts, do the install, do the bodywork, paint it) and then pay for it to get shipped back LOL. I'm serious, I would do this for anyone interested. It would just take me probably 2-3 months to complete one once I have all my molds finished.

I would cut a deal on someone with a zx5 because I'd love to create molds for zx5 RS conversions...
