    Good to hear from you Rob. I am one of the 4 proud owners of this wing. It is a great piece and love it. A major improvement over the ASC "sponge" piece. I am still needing the clips, but it's not like I'm missing them right now, since the car is still getting a major "body make-over". Anyway Rob, I have moved, so when you do have the clips to ship me, let me know so I can give you my new address. Thanks...

    Default 85 GPIV Resto

    Hi J,

    The restoration is going well. It is taking a long time, but things are progressing. I have been buying parts from junk yards and E-bay over the last two years. The car has been in the body shop for about 6 months. It has some major rust! All the floorboards are being replaced, as well as all fenders, both doors and both rocker panels. So, needless to say, it is in a major state or teardown at the moment. It's basically a bare frame right now that is being cut apart and welded back together! Doubt it's going to make the Woodward Cruise this summer. Maybe 2008? Thanks for checking in...

    I know you're not waiting to make them because you want to Rob, hope everything gets better. And when you can take orders again, I know I'm in for a pair.

    Is there any hope of more wings being made? I'm down for one, as I am sure many others are

    There is a guy on Maverick.to who makes Grabber hoods, fender extensions, spoilers, etc out of CF. I think he does glass too. If anybody would be willing make them, he might, as Maverick stuff is very low volume as well. I may PM him and see if he would be willing to make some. Of course we would still need a wing to make molds from...

    I am back from the dead sort of. Most of my "issues" are behind me now.

    I have tried to start making the wings again but I am having problems getting it done reasonably. I will throw this out to any one.

    A.) does any one who lives reasonably close (I am in cincinnati) do good glass work inexpensively or

    B.) If someone is serious and makes me a serious offer. I will sell the mold with detailed instructions and technical help from the man who made it for me.

    Keep in mind it is a multi piece mold and is not for a beginner. I would do it myself but I do not want to risk damaging the mold. I am not good enough at fiberglass yet. It was not cheap and would be hard to replace.

    There are alot of you who want one of these. I know this and want to get it done. This has gone on too long on my end and I want to make something happen.

    Thanks

    I sure hope something works out on these wings. It is my personal opinion that all bubble back capri's should have recieved this wing. I makes a world of difference in the looks of the rear of the car.

    I have someone who is going to help me with the wing now. How ever, he lives 1 1/2 hours from me and with our work schedules. It will take time.

    There are two people I owe clips to. I have pm'ed one of you. Will the other please contact me at madmax1@fuse.net. Do not contact me if you want to buy clips. I have none for sale at this time. I will post when I do.

    Also I am selling "my" wing I have been keeping for myself. If you are interested, contact me at madmax1@fuse.net. It will cost more than the original price.

    Thanks
