Reply to "Customs fiberglass"

This is a page to a re seller of customs fiberglass products based in San Antonio TX.

I have been conversing direct with the owner of customs fiber glass in mexico through his face book page. Rafael Albiter.

It all seems a little dodgy, but i dont believe it is. Im thinking of taking a trip down to see the factory when I’m safe to travel again and would prefer to buy direct from the factory... but there are some issues that I may need to over come when bringing in a used foreign chassis when I come to registering it. Some may say that the cost difference between buying from the re seller V’s the factory will relieve these issues... if you knew the price difference you may side with me, but i dont have the full picture yet.

I want to build a coupe car, daily driver (if I choose) myself to a good/high standard.

I want to use the suspensions front and rear.

I want to use a subaru EJ20 motor with a rebuilt freeway flier VW Tansaxle.

I want a kit that has the rubbers and the glass already sorted out.

I want all the body panels, doors and decks, already hung and gapped with latches and hinges.

I want a chassis that is already shortened and fits the body perfectly.

I have more personal specs that will add to the price. This is not the first time i have built or rebuilt cars. My wish list tackles the parts that I have had problems with in the past and that have reflected the quality of my finished product. The more money I can save on the body and chassis, the more I have to spend on the nice things I want to put in and on it.

I dont want much do I? I am expecting to spend around $40K. You may say, you can buy a JPS all done for that much... but I can see the AC unit under the dash, the body isn’t totally undercoated, there is a modicum of sound deadening internally, The fixtures and fittings aren’t going to be exactly what I wanted, the suspension will be the antiquated VW stuff, it wont have disc brakes front and rear... and i wont have built it myself. I would have to tear it to pieces over time to replace stuff and do it to my standard and that would add up to costing a whole lot more in the long run... 

make sense?
