I cannot imagine that these big clunky fixtures were used daily

feels to me more like proof of compliance for new molds or' WTF is wrong with this body' fixtures


well spotted, I was only looking at the trunk. Rather than glass it looks to me like the rest of the gelcoat of an hardtop without cutouts - yet exactly how it would be used remains unclear to me.

Rain guters and windshield gasket holders are thinner than the rest of the body, which is which I thought of a separate operation. Also the areas behing the bumpers is not single mould and has a junction line into them (and poor surface finish).
