Fibreglass considerations.


Recommended Posts

I've been pretty unwell since Saturday and stuck in bed since Thursday so thought I'd try and be productive and replace the broken wheel studs from the RBRR. Bit of a mistake as it turns out,  for two reasons;

1 - I'm now back in bed

2 - I've found yet another rust hole


Annoying as it's not like the car is 55+ years old, sits outside all year and coverd about 2300 miles last year...


Anyhoo, it leaves me considering fibreglass options again.


Years ago I fancied a Sammio but I'm not overly keen on the proportions. But for a while now I've been keeping an eye on the Formosa. Two issues (again);

1 - it'd mean no more RBRR for this car due to no roof

2 - my engine is about 6 inches further back than standard so there may be packaging issues.


What are peoples thoughts or experiences? I'm done with a welding session each year but I don't want to recycle the car either!
