TS, bumping this necro thread back up for a question. You said that the top portion of the boomerang is textured plastic, do you think it's possible to sand it smooth, or even possible to apply a plastic filler to it and then sand it smooth?
I'd like to apply a water transfer pattern to the boomerang, but don't like the idea that the textured part would show up in the water transfer pattern.
BTW, anyone know the dash part number, didn't have any luck finding it on Nally part site. TIA
My first jeep was a base TJ with black plastic textured flares. I wanted them color match so took them to a body shop, after getting them back several weeks later the bodyman told me he'd never do it again because sanding the texture out of the plastic took to much time. Then on top of that I found out afterwards that the base TJ flares weren't as wide as the Sahara or Rubicon flares. My next Jeep TJ I wanted in the color of silver, but Jeep wasn't offering the Sahara in silver that year. So I bought a silver sport with the thinner black plastic flares, then bought some wider Sahara flares and had them color matched silver (along w/the Sahara lower rocker panel trim piece). Luckily, the Sahara flares were molded smooth, so no extra sanding to get them smooth for paint. Still miss that Jeep, but not the bad gas mileage. Of course the four inch lift and 35 tires didn't help. But damn it look good, even painted the hardtop matching silver.
How is the face plate removed from the radio? Decided on removing my boomerang once more to paint the top portion black (since the red is reflecting off the windshield in the Florida sun) and going to do another wet sand and polish to fix up a few spots. Might as well paint the radio now. lol
Let me preface this by saying I’m not trying to start a problem or say anything bad about a member of the forum.
Can any of you guys who live near Norms shop or have him working on something for you confirm everything is ok with Norm and his shop? I’ve tried to reach him the last week or more...
Normsfiberglass posted these pics on FB a few weeks ago, and I don't have any other pics or info. As you can see this spoiler is a work in progress and I have no idea what the completion date or price will be. It's difficult to see in the pics but it does appear to blend into the 3rd brake...
Can anyone point me to an accurate 3D model - 3DSMAX, Maya, AutoCAD, whatever - of the vert and/or coupe?
I'm going to make some parts and would like to mock it up digitally beforehand. (It's a lot easier to hit "undo" than run back to the body shop supply store and buy $$$ worth of material.)
Added an index to this thread to make it easier to find subjects that have been covered when I need to find them. Or if you want to find them. :-)
4 inch tractor trailer led taillights, mod in progress but the leds are 2.80 watt leds with red halo daytime running light and center stop light. I cut the lenses off because every solstice I get they seem to start doing that. I will be making a vacuum seal polycarbonate or aka plexiglas clear...
