So they went to white at the first. We had problems reported. Now they are in black. Is there any relation with the "flawed" bodies and the white gel? Are the black bodies from newer molds or did they just change the gel coat for some other reason? Sorry if this info was posted elsewhere.
According to Nate Johnson and Mark Dougherty from FFR, the gel coat was changed to black to make it easier to see where the body work was needed. The body is very nice, has a couple of small imperfections, nothing difficult to repair. The number is just the chassis number. My kit number will start with a different number.
No, you could not just grind down the seams and polish the gel coat. It is not that nice. The only car I know of to offer that is the A & C.
Sergio, my tag line pretty much tells what options & drivetrain I went with.
It was fun having Joe & Amy over. Thanks for putting the pictures up, Joe.
Made the body buck yesterday, car is gonna come apart soon.
