Great work so far man! Damnit I wish I was good with fiberglass......
P.S. LOVE how all this is happening right next to the Po-po
I'm not "good" with fiberglass perse, but I was impressed with some of the cuts I made. Oh and interestingly enough, the popo is cool but while I was doing all this a condo commando told me I wasn't supposed to be working on my car lol.
Dude this is turning out great! Keep at it
As for the gaps, I would recommend learning how to patch fiberglass with.. fiberglass. It's messy and time consuming, but it would be the proper way to do it. next best thing is epoxy the pieces together (actually, should also do that if fiberglassing as well) and use body filler.. which could also be time consuming if you have to build up a lot. Then sand, clean, sand, clean, wet sand, clean, wet sand, clean, wet sand clean, prime, wetsand, clean, prime, wet sand, clean... you get the idea.
Also, are those projector fogs? If I wer you (which I'm not, fyi) I would try to find larger fog lights to better fit into those openings.. I personally like big fog lights.. like the older Imprezas. Or, if you're into the look, you could use up that gap with CCFL halos. They aren't for everyone, though. Just my $0.02
Thanks for the tips but I just intended on getting the cuts out of the way to save on labor costs. I'm not putting anymore work into the fitment myself. As far as the fogs, I bought them on a whim like every other part of my front end lol. I got them for 20 and am going to make them work. Did you not see the foam things I'm goin to use to fill the gaps? I'll prob plastidip them too to keep the color scheme going. Thanks for commenting.
You may totally disagree with me but, i think you should black out the kite shaped slots for the fog lights, and paint the mesh blaaack! (try is with plastidip first to get an idea of how it looks)
Yeah I would prefer some fogs. It's actually going to be a pretty low cost part of the front end. Paid 20 for them and now just gonna wire the switched on power from the dash lights. As far as the grill, I already plastidipped both mesh parts. Looks much better!
They told me it couldn't be done..
God that looks amazing!
Once this is done its gonna look like sex on wheels!

Yeah I'm excited to see the finished product. Thanks again for all your help, couldn't have done it without you!
Its gonna look bad ass when its all smoothed out and painted to match! Cant wait to see it.
I'm gonna set up the appt with the body shop tomorrow. I'd like to get it done before Sunday. Hopefully he can get me in before then.
excellent mod indeed,
looking forward to seeing this as it progresses
Thanks. I'm hoping I can find the time/heat gun to take the door guards off before it gets repainted.. Unless they won't charge much to do it at the shop.
