Default 1984 242 - Mein kampf, mit zwei türen!

I got a 242! It's shiny and red.

Old posts must of gotten lost when the board went down... Anywho.

Its a GRM 2003 car, iirc
Previous owner, spent his budget on Kjet restoration and paint (he did it himself)
Paint job is decent, Drove the car when I was at school without any hicups sans some exhaust manifold studs breaking and subsequent gaskets failing.

I will fill in the blanks later but long story short, its getting all the goodies from the wagon.

Car needs fenders flared to fit the Ferrari Wheel assortment that I have.

Current plan is to digitize the body and draw the flares I want in CAD, gonna send the surface files out and have a set of fenders cut out of MDF, lay up a mold from that and then do em carbon kevlar

Not sure which turn signal version i should make the fenders for... I have e codes for the quad rectangles but I also have an extra set of 86+ style ecodes that could be used, along with an eggcrate for the 86+

Rear flares I am on the wall against, I kind of want to have those molded too so I can get the shape perfect with minimal filler but I would have to figure out attachment to the body and I dont really think I want the apperance of a bolt on fender so it would most likely get bonded and blended to the quarter panel... I would have to modify in the inner and outer fender to create clearance.

Over a month with no updates. Better bring us something good or I'm going to think Brian's going to win the bet. I need to come see the car this week to get a visual approximation.

got the rear digitized, working on fender shaping.



this pic is as high as it can go before i start to have problems with the top of the inner fender area.

those light lines are the datum curves I collected using my Faro arm. Surfacing in pro-e is a whole new experience
