Great product.
I knew the count was over 20 ...
I did not know it was as high as 37.

IF 1bad32 likes the style of the fiberglass N&N ... he should buy one.
It is very evident that he is new to Hot Rods and does not really know what he needs.
I do not know what he needs either

I am just trying to get the guy to LOOK around, smell the roses and figure out what suits him.

I have a friend who bought a 32 3W ... from the second owner. It may have been one of your builds. HE hates the car. He did a quick impulse buy. The car is OK ... typical plastic 3W build but not what he wants now that he has been to a few events and shows.

1 ) the coupe smells of resin when sitting in the HOT South Carolina weather
2 ) the paint is lifting ... ( heat on the fiberglass )
3 ) the doors do not open well or latch well ( body has shifted )
4 ) the electric windows fail to work everytime ( electrical ground issue on a fiberglass door )
5 ) NO cowl vent ...
6 ) bucket seats ... ???
7 ) He has a T-350 not a 700R4
8 ) the engine is not real powerful. ( GM 290 HP crate I believe )

He has tried to sell it ... with no buyers.
It will be in Daytona Beach this Thanksgiving ... with a for sale sign in it. He is willing to lose 5 / 7 grand ... just to get rid of the thing.

Disclaimer :

I do not have any interest in selling 1bad32 a coupe. Nor do I want to work on his coupe. I am not trying to get him to buy ANY particular body or product. I am not trying to set the style of his build.

My comments are purely on a educational level.
I am DONE ...
