Ooopssieeee and a fixxiieeee

Soo welllll lol I accidentally trimmed a lil too much now I know why the the skirts are a lil long on the side where it mounts to the door. THANK GOD I did not throw away the piece that I cut off so here is a lil write up on how to fiberglass

Things needed Fiberglass resin can get at any auto store (vatoZone) Fiberglass hair not the nylon kind, a brush, something to put the resin in. I would wear a mask and be in a ventilated area because this shit will make you dizzy oh and gloves too I use like 4-5 pairs depending if you get messy or not.



had a small crack I wanted to fill in also



First you gotta sand down the side so it fits flush so I went ahead and did that in the garage haha now you tape it together with the foil tape (I saw a DIY in option 2 dvd they used foil tape because even the resin if it hardens you can peel it off)





Now you mix you're resin and hardner together make SURE you read on how much hardner you mix in because too much resin will harden really really fast too less it wont harden at all



Now I usually use two layers of fiber and resin depending on what you are doing so before you start brushing the resin away cut up the fiber on how long you need it



Okay once the fiber is cut you wanna start brushing the area where you are gonna put the fiber on make sure it is a HEAVY layer of resin so the fiber sticks





After the second layer I was getting dizzy cuz I had no mask hahah I thought it woulda been faster but guess not anyway I left the skirt out side my apartment because I did not wanna die depending on how much hardner you put thats how fast the resin is gonna dry Im pretty good at eyeballing on how much is needed but after about 1-2 hours it was all good and dry



Here is the finished product =] hard and solid as a rock!





Now to get rid of the gap between what was fiber glassed together you need to fill it with body filler and sand it down but I was to lazy to do it so ill do that tomorrow so enjoy hope you learned something I learned how to do this on youtube rofl but this is my 10th time doing this and its pretty easy any questions let me know

They had a sale =]

Mitsua had their annual magazine overstock sale sooooo option 2 for 1 dollar most expensive was 5 and came with a dvd =] paid full price for the drifting tengoku though haha and I got my ramen and gf got her katsudon



fixed the shitty rear bumper

so many problems with chaser aero rear bumper anyway my exhaust was tooooo big for the hole so i had to trim it down and then to fix the wavy ass bumper used L brackets from home depot a heat gun and patience


The pipes were to wide for the rear bumper hole it was hitting it a lot



Dremeled that bad boy to make it wider



and fits!! you can see how shitty the bumper fits



3 inch L brackets from home depot and a heat gun no zipties needed =]



sooo much better and I didnt do the drill holes on the center garnish and ziptie the bumper up works so well that the bumper is not even bolted on!!





A couple of over all pics im pretty happy now I just need 5 lug and tires so I can get it on the ground my stances are just chillin in the room wth my wheels

Im pretty happy overall the car is coming along great =] after I buy my motherboard for my computer build 5 lug it is =]
