Ivan's coupe [spoiler: things get sticky]
I'm still busy with this.. I can say it is a bigger pain in the ass to get right than most youtube instructional vids would have you believe.

First problem was bits of cf cloth not sticking down properly near corners.. probably 2 hours curing time was not the sweet spot for this epoxy
or I should have cleaned the plastic better. The only way to 'fix' this afterwards is to layer on enough epoxy to cover the bulged spots.
Then there is uneven distribution of epoxy... wherever it could run off it ended up very thin and in some places it pooled in a thick layer..
So now I am in for a shitload of sanding to get it presentable. It wont be perfect but I'm thinking a usable result is still achievable.

There you go.. another 10 hours of hard work.. Glad I'm not in the restoration business... I cant imagine having to do this much faster.

Nice work! Mines gone in the same place but opposite (rhd), opened up the front pocket to find rust that'd been played over. Floor panel, outrigger and inner sill repair panels fabricated... Now to make up a patch for the front pocket. Your build is informative and encouraging
