I've got my A/C condenser mounted in my rocker panel, I'm really happy with how this turned out.

The more I look at it, this still doesn't look right to me.  I think I'll cut it more at the top where I've added the red line.

I finished the fiberglass work for the quarter windows, they are not exactly OEM but I think I can live with this.  Like everything else, they still need lots of body work.

Fiberglass work sure is messy, I also want to be finished with it soon hopefully.  You are moving right along buddy, keep it up.

Also, I filled in the rocker panel gaps.  They don't look pretty but it's something to work with when it comes time to do body work.  I can't wait to be done with fiberglass, lol.

I added a lip to the inside of my wheels wells, this will allow me to tuck a wheel liner in behind the lip.  I'll cut them down a bit eventually but I think they turned out pretty good.  It looks like I may need to reshape the wheel well openings a little bit though.

And finished reinforcing the front bumper, just before dark.  I'm super excited, this feels like huge milestone.

Fixed the bumper sag, hopefully I got this right.  Now I just need to finish reinforcing this front bumper then I'll figure out how to bolt it to the chassis.

Bumper option works too. I did that with mine and it looked fine :).

The rockers are glassed on and reinforced, I still need to fill in the gaps and do a bunch of body work but I'll do that another time. 

Next step, fix the bumper sag.  It looks like jets303 cut a slice out of his fender to fix it here http://lamboclone.com/index.php?topic=151.msg1711#msg1711 but I'm thinking it should be cut out of the bumper, any opinions on that?

Thanks for the tips guys.  I glassed the main part of the rockers to the body on both sides today.  I'll glass the back part on tomorrow then reinforce them with steel that ties into the rest of the framework so nothing should move.  I'll have more pictures tomorrow weather permitting.

Note that paneling can change shape slightly when you flip it upside down, depending on the panel flexibility.  You should flip the body right side up and then make sure everything is square and sitting properly.  Best to do this before you progress too far.

Looks good though!   ::thumbup

If you look at the body section of my eManual, it will detail how I mounted my rockers

Does this look right to you guys?  The two parts of the rocker don't seem to line up that well with each other which bothers me.

You've got that right, that's over $500 in glue right there.  I didn't anticipate how expensive this would get but I think it's worth it.
