I don't know how accurate the info is, but I saw a report that Waxoyl will eat into and damage GRP - so maybe care has to be taken on the chassis/body interface that no waxoyl gets on the GRP.

A very interesting build. I wonder whether it is possible to make a replacement lens cover using water-clear resin (with colour added), or would it be too fragile? It looks like your lens is solid...

I'm led to believe that popular Peugeot wheels are the same PCD as old Fords (but different less? offset), maybe worth a look also. Most of the FWD Fords will be the wrong offset for a RWD car (and...

If you want to disguise it (as long as it's high enough) it may be possible to use the rear vent as a dummy which is hinged to reveal the filler cap underneath.

It may work, and once the body is painted (unless someone puts a straight edge to such areas) may not be noticeable anyway.

Will plastic filler have the same not-stick properties of GRP resin? If it's only a small crack, is it maybe worth (at least) getting a quote from a pro repair place?
