    I'm looking to shop around for the best price. Has anyone had experience with others, that do both FRC's and Airlids?

    I agree with everything you've stated, but he was slightly over what I want to pay. I wish I had started this earlier (during the winter) then I wouldnt have the cost of a second airlid involved. As it is I would be getting it out of storage and needing the airlid before I would have it back. I could back down on my design a lil, but then in my head it would always be substandard. So........ If anybody has had good results from someone else I'd like to give them a look. (Doing a web search only turns up hundreds of Veh's stating they have FRC's and not many doing them for sale, hense the request on here for assistance.)

    That's so cool, ..., Thanks man, I appreciate the good words!
    You too Dabom & Cajun, Thanks! It means a lot to have people enjoy & be proud of the work involved!
    As most of ya know, I don't go advertisin' the work.
    I simply do it as hobby work to help out other enthusiast's!
    Most all of the things I make are from word of mouth referrals.
    No, it's not cheap. Sorry, ...


    Sometime it's not what you know, ..., but who ya know, ...,

    Thanks, the general text stuff is all vinyl. But some of it is paint work using vinyl for paint-masks also, such as the checkerboard.

    If you want to go the DIY route, over on LS1tech a guy that goes by "BlueKnight" made a video of him doing his own, per his video all you need is bondo, primer, sand paper, spray paint, labels if you want them and the time and labor.

    Well I have to admit I've shopped around (trying to save my pennies) and have found a few saving me $, but in the end Pontiacfan's work appears to be superior. So as it stands I'm going to suck it up, stop whinning save up the rest and pay Pontiacfan what he most likely deserves.

    I really like the cut letters Sandman, that will hold up much better than the vinyls. Could you do some Camaro SS cut letters also?

    So I have been working on Bouvers FRCs. They came in and I took some pics. These were "perfesionaly" done. Yet they didnt look so hot. I was just expecting to remove the lines and the 5.7 and repaint them. But the quality of these were so bad that I though I would go back to formula on these. In some areas you could see where the fill of the Corvette lettering was already starting to come appart. That was a big Since these were going to have work done by me, I wasnt going to let that kind of stuff go out of my "shop" like that. So here are some before and after shots.
