Norms Fiberglass

Went down to Norms Fiberglass last weekend to get a replacement 430 front fascia.
As always Norm went above and beyond to make sure everything fit and lined up.
He has some major magic tricks in alignment, to make everything come together.
The fascia of course was flawless in every way.

And for those interested, curbs and stop signs don't mix well with intercoolers and fascias

I loved my 430 bumper. I miss it.

*sniff*

I am considering moving the vented fenders from the blue car over to the GXP; just not sure if I feel like painting anything right now. It's a pain in the posterior.

Brethern,
Let me chime in about Norms. Spent a few days there a couple of weeks ago getting a CAI GTO hood, front & rear facia installed. Had a great time hangin' out with him & his buddies. My idea of an old fashioned shop, with a vast array of people stopping by, handing him tools & checking out all his different projects.

He's a true master draftsmen when it comes to fiberglass body work. I believe he's only the second guy I've ever met ( the first being long gone!} that is committed to quality & presision Painting & body work.He''s never satisfied until his work has met his standards.

He's very knowledgeable about our Kappas & taught me a few things that I wasn't aware of. All in all a great time to spend my "vacation"

Nervous

*Somebody* needs to live in a town with well-lit streets that don't contain spare tires in the middle of the lane. It wasn't a freaking curb.

But, yeah - thanks for that.

I was just thinking that. Low-tech, cheap, effective and easy to store. I love it.

It was actually during an unpredicted downpour. And of course, since the roof doesn't fit in our cars it was at home.
