The purpose of building these intricate moulds is replicating the panels without all this current effort,
hence if you want the panels and are willing to pay the price, we are more than willing to do the Job, as mentioned by miyer, we do have our own take at doing the job which means it must be done at our end.
Havnt yet finalised the costing yet.

amazing work so far i must say! i am eagerly waiting for the end product!

ps: you guys remind me of the "BANGLA BANGERS " car show

Bangla Bangers

Quote:
"Bangla Bangers, , is a reality program on Discovery Channel about an eccentric Bangladeshi car designer (Leepu) and a straight talking mechanic by the name of Bernie Fineman. In every episode they try to make a supercar out of a car they buy at a wrecking yard.
Leepu, whose real name is Nizamuddin Awlia, converts rusting old cars into Ferrari and Lamborghini styled cars and limousines in his small workshop in Dhaka, Bangladesh. What makes these episodes notable is that the cars are built in a small garage using only basic tools and the bodywork is hand cut and shaped using sheet metal. With the help of the mechanic (Bernie Fineman) the improvements are sometimes remarkable."

I've seen some of the episodes of Bangla Bangers! And yes, it's a fantastic show! The project on this thread reminds me of that show!

OT: The show is normally aired in Discovery Turbo. But a few episodes were aired on Discovery Travel & Living! On T&L, the timings for this show are very erratic, unfortunately!

Please do not 'spoil' the looks by adding a spoiler to this design. This looks great!!

No spoiler please! But how about a small boot lip? Would it look nice.

P.S : I guess it's called a boot lip, you get the accessory in Laura

This surely going to look great. Body shape and contours look promising. Do not go over board with loads of stripes/graphics and funny colours.

Don't get me wrong. It has tremendous potential.
+1 on that. I think the colour will matter the most in this case. Great work guys!!!!

Considering its going to be a FG body , why not a hydraulic spoiler/lip sitting flush with boot lid and then comes up at the flick of a switch (ala 911s and Veyrons and what not)?
