Yes, Something simple from heat shield, heel guard, and exhaust hangers. Just to get an Idea what are involve making the molds and materials needed, the rest is yours if your thinking a bigger project at home.

Niiiice. There's a kid that just started working with me, that was a c/f tech for a company the did stuff for NASA etc. He'd be working next to me now, and we are working out a little bartering. Let the mods begin.

I'm experimenting with the fiberglass first, alot cheaper. I think the hardest part, for me anyways, is mounting tabs. Like the rear tail section that holds the brake light in, etc. Guess I'll just keep plugging away till I get it right.

If you use the OEM rear ferring to make mold should be that difficult. When you lay down the cloth and apply the the resin should show the holes. Sample the heel guard
you notice the holes at the end of the heel guard from the OEM part.

Holes are fine it's the tabs that extrude inside the bodywork. Don't know how you would go about molding those.

If you can't mold it from the out side using Epoxy resin and add High Density filler (make sure almost like paste and poke with tooth pick to get rid of the bubbles,) could use the clay to make the mold and glue it together using the Super Hard Epoxy. Sample pics.:mrgreen: Don't forget to put painters tap at the buttom.
