The Racerís Group Fiberglass Quality?

I would like to get feedback on the quality of the fiberglass bodywork.

I think they did that yellow 993 look crazy turbo car "rhumba" featured in Excellence a while back. The article mentioned how much work it was to fit all the pieces and IMHO that job looked like S*&%!!

That car is for sale by them, so maybe there are some pics of it on their website you could look at.

Are you talkng about their workmanship, or the quality of the fiberglass pieces themselves? If the latter, I am sure they get their bodywork from an outside source.

I ordered a fiberglass hood from the Racers Group for an early 911 years ago. They get it from MA SHAW. Just order it direct from them. Best quality out there. Forget about ordering from Hank at GT Racing.... That stuff is complete junk.

Can't really comment on the quality other than a friend of mine got their 993 widebody and fitted it to a 1973 911 with not too much problem. Of cours it's a race car and not a concours queen so probably not the information you're looking for.

Looking at the pictures on The Racer's Group website, they look a lot like the ones from the Getty Design (http://www.gettydesign.com) catalog.
