    I continue to apply the gel coat till the desired thickness is achieved so its just a one step process.

    Again great meeting you. Tom
    I'm not 100% sure. I would mix up a small batch of resin and test it on the part first to make sure.

    After giving it some thought (about the gas struts)you did mention that your rear louvers were different than the one I have so maybe the additional weight is the problem. Just go to the web site where the gas struts were purchased from and see what you can find with one that has a little higher PSI.

    It was great getting to know you also.


    Update:

    I have a sheet of polypropylene that I use for making flanges for the molds so you should be ok using it

    Keep in touch

    Got all the glass laid. Now I'll give it a day for it to cure before I pull the mold off the bucks.

    Looking good, I think once I start the Nova a gelcoat gun will have to be acquired. I have 3 shells to choose from but not one complete one so will need to fabricate some parts.

    Done
    I need to wait now till the materials arrive so I can make the part.

    As always quality work, I just love seeing parts made. Always inspires me to get back to working on my Nova

    Bucks for the Pocket section on the side panels are just about done.

    Molds will be made and once the part is made, it will be bonded in place. You can see the section that will hold a cup in place.

    Order that I placed for the materials should be here this week.

    Once I get that I'll spray the gel coat on and lay the glass to make the mold.
    Since the buck is just primed it still needs to be sanded and then painted before sprayed with gel coat

    These will be made just like the ones that you got David

    That looks very neat, how will you get access to your VIN number, will the centre section lift out?
