I just went over to Seaside Autobody today to get a quote to get my sides glassed and front and rear adjusted to fit perfectly. He quoted me $1030, that also includes mesh for the sides and front. Pretty damn good if u ask me. He is also using some new 3M glue [shizzle] that is hella hazerdous that costs like $40 a tube, you have to take some 8 hr course to be able to even purchase this stuff!! so bye bye rivits, hello glue. This is all going to happen sometime in january!!! YAY FOR ME!!

i'd stick with rivets myself.....glue can always fail ;) if rivets fail, you can always drill them out and replace 'em

the guy said the glue is the stuff car makers use, like the corolla s add ons and such, hella strong and guaranteed as long as i have my car same for the fiberglass, guaranteed unless i get in an accident or somethin like that. as for color i am going either black w/green pearl or green w/black pearl. havent figured out which one will give the effect i want. lookin for a dark dark green with shades at different angles pretty much.

well if the warranty is like you say...werd up :tup:

as for color....i'd check with unique to see what he suggests.....but a black base with an iridescent pearl coat would look good :)

To get a really good effect on the pearl you should contrast light- dark or dark to light.

A guy in my car club painted his S10 white with a purple pearl looked sick. Just my opinion.
