Default Fiberglass!

For all you scratch builders out there, if you are looking for high quality fiberglass pieces such as foot box's, brake ducts, inner rear fenders, suspension covers, hood scoops, trunk trays etc.
We are working on updating all my old molds.
For the most part making new molds is probably more accurate.
I have handed this task off to a good friend here on cc M. Krause, he has done a wonderful job so far.
The first job is 289 foot box's, the first set out of the new molds are super nice and are now in the builders hands ready to be fitted to a scratch built 289 car.
Big thanks to Mike for taking this on and doing such a wonderful job.

It was decided that my 289 footbox molds were not that great so Mike made new molds from a nice set of 289 foot box's I have.
Fine tuning the little nooks and crannies.
Making the mold.

Great stuff! Completely undervalued effort, well done!

How often did people reply to my offer: "Oh, that tub I can do myself." I used to quote $200 here in South Africa.

Then nothing people do fits. No headers, no pedals, no tall driver, no roll bar, no shifter... Nevermind the mess!

I have one tub left, cut in pieces, which I may use as a template for an ally tub. But fibreglass insulates better.
