Roland, I am familiar with your homemade, VERY awesome, big wing (first rate craftsmanship!) - I was just making a little , word-play joke for Paul's benfit (the "wing" representing "something else") - ha ha ha!

WOW, too bad the bodyshop fu@ked up your bumper - wonder how they accomplished that?

hello,

your rear bumper was new for this projekt?
you have test fit the new fiberglas part, make it fit and than gave it to the bodyshop?

has the bodyshop tempered the part bevor finish and paint? have you check the fit than again?
if not thats the problem...

some fiberglas parts change a little bit there shape during the first few tempering phases...

if you want more explanation let us write in german via mail or the elferteam.de Forum - ist much easier for me

Hi Tom

No, bumper is on the car since 2011. I had a lot of work to fit it well, but in the end it was fine.

More about in my thread here:

Help!!! Which IROC rear Bumper do you suggest?

Reason now is that flares have been removed, most of the back tub replaced (see earlier in this thread). Simply said the flares are not in same position now. Bumper is within same measurements than before, the car not...

Here pics of 2011, no comparison to now

How many boats do you see in the picture? Was that done intentionally? I feel like a pervert now. I will have to go to confession.

I use A2-70 and A4-80 machined with common hardmetal (carbide I guess in english) plates. like them because I can use for all material and they cut quit nice even in tough material and they are cheap. So no worry about lifespan

Titan is in most cases (same as cf instead of fg) not worth the price, at least for me

BTW drilling is the issue here, as SS is damn bad to drill in little diameters, HSS is not strong enough for more than one row. Used Titan nitraded ones, but they thend to break very easy, brittle like hell
Of course this is only an issue at home with lower rpm's and only spray cooling

While other things don't come like wished and need excessive effort, I fitted the front fenders. Now it starts looking like a car more and more

Proffighter, I absolutely love the color of the car. I enjoy reading and watching your madness on this car. Anticipating more progress in your posts, and then the end result of your work. Very cool.

Very impressive that you can work in such a "tight" garage

Very exciting to see all this fine progress

Cheers

Fitted wheels and cage, not easy without scratching the paint
