New fiberglass front end

Some pics of how I transported my new fiberglass front cap. I ordered this thing last tuesday picked it up last saturday. I have it on awaiting the material for the tree and final fitting. I am going to repair the old hood and use it for the bash and save the new one incase I want to change my form of induction

New Front cap and hood $ 750 ......... spankin Bruno's azz priceless

Its pretty good quality for what I paid for it. He did not put as much bracing as Dwane did on the first one. I am happy with it though.

He offered to sell me the front end, door and trunk lid MOLDS for the 95-98 mustang for $1000 , and the 2005 mustang for $1,500. I have thought about it, but messing with this front end has reminded me of how much I hate fiberglass

That's a damn quick turn around time.

Was it hand-laid 'glass or done with a chopper gun? If it was hand laid he worked his *** off to get it done so quick. Either way $750 is a damn good price for 'glass.

Great looking piece Randy. We've been though this kind of stuff too and it's always a battle you feel good about when you've won it! It's a good thing there are great suppliers out there that pull our asses out of the fire at times!

$750 and it was technically out of production? I think that is great, and great that he did it so quickly for you.
