Sorry....I should clarify....its EPOXY that is coating all the cf surfaces....NOT resin.

I saw the trunk today. One final coat of epoxy to go. They are now ready to start putting clear on all the surfaces. Then they will install the door poppers to shave the handles. They are also doing a little 'detail' on the rear fenders to blend the spoiler. Then off to paint.

I'll tell you this now...there is a LOT of time (and hence money) in these CF modifications....

Updated pictures. First look of the window hood on the car. You can see the Kevlar fuel rail covers. Roof has had final clear coat prep. Just need to block sand the final pin hole repairs before it goes to the paint booth.

Interior pieces are done except for final clear coat.

Now that the roof is done they can take off the masking materials and can do the shaved handles and popper kit.

Suppose to go the paint shop next week. HOPEFULLY another week and it will be back....just in time for the Vancouver rainy season.

Well: No pictures. They have been taken in "large" format and I have no idea how to resize them to a resolution that you can upload. I have looked around Windows Photo Gallery and "Digital Professional Photo" software I have but nowhere can I see how to save them as a different resolution.

:(

Its been quite enlightening to be able to go visit the car everyday and to truly appreciate what goes into this. The TIME...the patience...the process to do it "right".....I had no real idea.

I suspect that in this next week as most of the preparation and fabrication is concluded it will seem to get completed quickly as everything comes together for the finishing. I can't wait to bolt those wheels on.

Unfortunately pictures do not do justice to the CF work that has been done.

That being said....Iggy knows (and is the first to remind me)...this car is being done "right"....it can't be rushed and corners cut. It will spoil the end result.

Here are a couple recent pictures. At the paint shop now so getting closer.

Having the door handles shaved.

the second picture is a detail done on the fenders to blend in the new spoiler onto the fenders.

I saw the car yesterday...no pics.

Also got to see a sample of the paint when it is finished on a sample card. Looks REALLY good. Calipers are being painted but one question that we will have to wait on are the wheels. Will I need to paint the yellow on the wheels?

Its tough to say. I think we WILL but we will paint the car first, put the wheels on and then decide.

Once the car is painted we can try and find an appropriate colour for the leather interior. I have not planned on a stereo update to this point but perhaps....
