Following this build since the start now it's awesome to finally see it at this stage, the LEDs are gonna be so sick once you are out and about at night.

If you raise the roof by 15mm won't you need to put a second skin on?

@ mag - yes i have to raise the roof up 15mm cause i used a Nissan Maxima winscreen

@ LamboChris - Cheers Mate yip it will be differant

@ fox_man_chris - i build up the layers with fiberglass so the roof will still be as strong if not stronger that the standard roof line

Picked the roof scoop up today

The LED's all fiberglassed down

Second layer of fiberglass this layer will pin down the roof scoop

Loads of bumps looks like a gold course :-) these will be sorted


I used filler in the low spots to level the area out then sand this back then re-fiberglass the whole roof

Pulled the lambo replica out today for a clean up of the unit here it is beside the mr2





The roof section still fiberglassing and sanding

This section will direct air over and down toward the engine cover from the scoop

A few pin holes to be done

Made headlight brackets and the work perfect :-) the coca-cola tops push the whole headlight up and keep it tight


Headlight all in and lens all cut to shape

All sanded ready for more primer

Re-primered
