In the other boat tail thread, someone suggested using bathroom shower surround. I realized I had some of this lieing around so in an effort to save time (and a buck) I went with it for the final pieces.

DONT DO IT!

It's horrible to work with. all it does is fracture and shatter. I should have stuck with tin. Its actually slowed me down as I'm now going to have to redo the pieces I did do with it. *Sigh*

But I do have some pictures from tonight. The rear is done. All the glass is on. I just need to finish shaping the front and I'm done. I am going to try it without a gasket. If I feel it could be improved I'll fabricate something then.





Also visible in the pictures: I chose to leave the corner lights exposed for this. I figured it'd be minimal loss overall, save the problem of forming a tight seal of the car, and I'd get to have extra indicators. Which wouldnt be a bad thing.
