Looks pretty killer, though.   :thumbup:


It's your car, just don't ruin it.

 

It's also not my money, so i'll suggest the most expensive option.

Update
Got a little more done tonight , still working on the exhaust and some stuff under the hood.
DSC03774_zps5lk4qbft.jpg

Always sand the paint off first before you cut it !!! ( prevents wavy thin spots , makes it a little easier to weld later)
DSC03776_zpsj9a06mgi.jpg

DSC03778_zpssqt8zlrr.jpg

This is cut a little smaller than the final piece will be , I can trim it nicely with snips later
DSC03787_zpsownzyacq.jpg

anyway this gives you an idea of what the end result will be , just imagine the carbon cover on it , the cover will go into the hole of the box , should be cool .
DSC03792_zpsjegfakf9.jpg

I will weld an edge on the box side ( going inboard ) to finish the panel

And of course I had to plasma cut the box mount off , and will have to make a custom one to clear the pipe .....

Small update
Zero time for Blue Thunder , just too busy with work ..... totally burnt out .
Glassed the plug and made the mold for the exhaust tip cover , was rushed to get it done .
The plug took a beating , but that's ok , the mold is not bad , I was planning to use the same exhaust tip on the next project , there will be two of them out back in the defuser , so that's why I went to all this effort .

Hi guys
Thanks for all the support , I have zero me time ,I was surprised to see that I was still on the first page of builds here , haven't had the time or energy to get my Ratsun fix !!!! .( was hoping to see some more of Datstang's progress looking forward to seeing it without all the tape and paper )
Going to take tomorrow off , maybe go to the British Car show with a couple of buddies , and weather permitting maybe do a test of the mold with just fiberglass , that way I can continue with the exhaust and the test piece take all the scratching etc while finishing the body work around the exhaust exit , Carbon fiber is just under a $100.00 bucks a yard here .( so no testing the mold with that )
Thanks again guys and as soon as I have an update it will be posted !!!
Cheers
