It only took maybe an hour or so to prep it and put the resin and fiberglass cloth on, but the bodywork was alot longer. There's over a half gallon of Rage in it so between bondo-ing and block sanding probably 8-10 hrs, and it needs a few more to get it ready to paint.

Re: My 86 build

After a couple of hours with a drill and wire wheel, I painted and clear coated my serpitine set up. I forgot to take a pic of the clutch fan and alternator and all the other bolts and hardware, but its all painted and ready to go on. I might try to do that friday. I still need a a/c compressor delete pulley, water pump gaskets, and a power steering pump puller....oh and figure out how to wire up alternator.
