Britanny and I went to the shop yesterday to take some pictures of my car. It’s hard for me to see it like this, but I want to get some in-progress shots for posterity. Still a long way to go, but they’ve done a lot of the general body work, and cut in one of the NSX side vents.
The guy that I got to do the project has been working with fiberglass for 30 years, and has had his own shop for 20. He does a lot of custom fiberglass work for cars.
He’s got a Datsun 240Z, (the original import tuner, and a beautiful machine, for those of you that don’t know cars), that he got in 1976. It has a fully custom front end, as well as a new rear bumper and rear window made just for the car. He used to take it to shows all over the US and Canada.
And he also owns (my personal favorite in his shop), a Delorean (the Back to the Future car)! Until this, I had never seen one that wasn’t the regular steel gray color. It was in an accident, but he’s restoring it. He makes Delorean parts out of fiberglass for companies all over the place. I’ve only ever seen three of these in person, and only one was on the road.
