Wide body build thread! Fiberglass Mafia kit MOLDED

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

It's been a while but now all the bodywork is almost done, I thought I would give a little update.


The car needed a lot more attention after we last talked. The fiberglass had multiple pinholes in it after the primer and sealer, so we had to fill and sand again, fill and sand again. Primer again, seal again, and then over here in CT we had about a month and a half of humidity and horrible weather. Not ideal for paint!




I'll cut to the chase and show some pictures. This was just after paint, it still needed to be clear coated so don't get caught up on the matte paint! It will be glossy don't you worry.

I really like how the paint changes color in the light. In a dark setting its more of a copper base and in the light its a nice orange. 


I almost had the engine bay painted black as well but after all the hard work put into making it smooth I opted to keep it orange. The frame rails and bumper ends were painted black.


Like I said, clear coat is still to come and then the glass is getting put in and its coming back to me!!😊

Hey guys! It's been a while but I just wanted to upload some pictures of the finished paint job. 


It's all nice and shiny! All it needs now is a wet sand and buff and it's all mine to pick up. The glass is getting put in in a couple days so I'll post some more pictures when I get them!

Looks really nice! I'm building another car and am considering those flares too. I can't wait to see your beauty with the wheels on to fill out the new flares!

I too went with the cut bumper when I did my car! 👍
