Fiberglass hood and question

Midwest Amphicar

Chances are I will have one of Gords excellent fiberglass hoods here in Mendota. So for any northerners, this will save you on shipping.

Gord on front panel that holds headlights, Do they all have headlights cut out? I have a front clip here that I think needs to become a trailer. I think I would just as soon paint headlights in. Gord call me when you get a chance. Later Dave the Wave

The front nose pc. in Fibreglass was pulled of a NOS steel part that now graces Gerry's O's Car in Boston. so it has the holes for headlights cut out
they sell for $200.00. I can make a special one up using old headlights in the holes. I will put the stock ones on sale for the Fall at $100.00 and headlighted ones can be made for $150.00

To Paul from Albany NY..
without seeing the damage I can not say where or what to do. if its just the nose. , As I state above I have them in glass, as well as the rest of the front end(Clip)
I also have parts cars here and may have some donor parts but most fronts would be rough will have to look at my(Stump) car
My 1st car in 94 was so rough I cut front off at windshield and welded another front on at the glass seam.. joined at bottom by the tow hook.

Gord I picked up the car yesterday, It was hit all the way up to the frame on the passenger side. It was not anything like the guy said.
alot of stuff was missing? but the tranny looked great and the motor looked good, And the floor felt solid but i did not clean it out yet?
So I am not sure what I am going to do with it at this time. That is what I get for buying a car sight unseen!! Not sure if i want to do that
much work anymore.
I will have my son post some pics maybe this weekend??
Thanks Paul from Albany

Gord: The car was hit good and hard, It is bent all the way back to about 4 inchs from the windshield on the passenger side. Beleave it
or not the wheel well is not that bad? It is going to need a complete passenger side fender, the whole middle part from driverside fender to the tow hook. I used fiberglass quarters on my blue car that i got from you and love them. How much is the price for these parts in glass?
THANKS PAUL, 67 BLUE , 67 RED MAYBE :}

Dave.. I had a look at the mould yesterday. as they are a reverse form I can not sick a headlight ass, in to pull off a copy. it would have to be the inside of the glass, but maybe a pie pan in there will make the shape in glass and paint up good

Front fenders.. I have a complete front end in Fibreglass, I think theres a pic on club classified..I can cut it in half at tow hook or go over to other fender (I would)$500.00 for fender and pan. but to large for reg. shipping.
I will also look at the parts cars and see if there is any good ones on them.
