Got on the second and last layer of fibreglass today, now it's time for some major bondoe and sanding, before it's ready for paint.

Just three pics from todays work, hard to see the progress but it's there :P

Some more work, put on a layer of black, to make it easier to see where to sand down and where to put on bondoe.
Also started to remove some foam.

Got some filler on it, but it still needs a lot of bondoe and sanding before it's ready for paint...

Got some pictures after mounting the rear bumper, har some troubles with the paint, got lots of "bubles" in the paint, and thats why there are so many white spots:(
It's not going on next year, cause it just doesn't look right on the car.

Here's some pics, Let me know what you think.
