Almost finished fitting / shaping f/g trunk, starting the hood

I have to say I did not think it was going to take 8 weeks of work (after work at night) to fit the fiberglass trunk and extensions, but finally there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Tonight I flipped the trunk upside down, and began to tune up the underside of the edges and lips where reshaping took place, I hope it does not take more than a few nights.

I am now preparing for the fiberglass hood and nose section /fascia. This is much better fitting than the trunk to begin with. I did not think it would take more than a few days. However after my pickiness with the trunk fitment, I think a few days is overly optimistic. I hope that my experince on the trunk will make me a little speedier at taking the right steps in getting the hood aligned, gapped, and shaped to the fender and fascia contours.

I guess if I figure on another 8 weeks, I won't be in a hurry

I am very pleased with how the trunk looks, I'll post some pics soon.
