I Hate The GTM...
After about 9 years I finally said it and am sure I am not the only one, nothing about this car fits and is precise by any starch of imagination, you would think once in a while you will run into something that just nicely fits but no cannot be.
This weekend I thought I get the headlights on, sound like it should be easy right? But no, no with this piece of Sh..
With the car body all painted, holes for head light cut to manual spec, 3.5inch ( 89mm) after paint and work this is about 87 or so, but head light are 90 to 91 mm, so what were they thinking saying Drill a 3.5 inch hole, should have been 3.625 ( 3 5/8 ) just bunch of amateurs at FFR, what happened to tolerances and stack up calculation, these are simple math, after having hell of a day drilled slightly larger hole which is hell without a center got the lights to fit better without screwing up the paint work.
Sunday, let try the signal lights, ok that should really be easy, Oh no, no cannot be, they also do not fit, it is even worse than the head lights, same issue, hole too small with paint work, hit the side of the high beam, and so on and there is no easy fix since there juts is not enough meat in the buck for larger hole.
Through it on the grounds, and said Fu.. this, went and grabs a beer.
So I had to get this out, not sure it makes me feel any better built may be it will help other builders.
