      • What was Maier's plan for that nose peice if it wasn't to use the stock grill? Just run without it or do they offer a grill or something as well?

        The more I look at the pictures in red and black, the more I like it.

          I have no idea what they were thinking since the fit is so bad.

          • Rusty, does the epoxy primer stay with the sheen it has to it, and is it easy to "touch up" rock dings, door dents, that kind of stuff? Also, where can I get it, and how much did it take to get your car to where it's at right now? Thanks for any info you want to share. :beer:

                  Was it always like that or is that something Barry has done recently? Been quite awhile since I've been on the spi site.

                    You're starting to scare me here. I am looking for a R Model bumperless nose for my 68 and the Maier is the only I have seen so far. If it fits like poo, my body guy isn't going to be happy.

                            Unless they changed it your body guy is not going to like it. There is no way mine would fit without modifying the headlight buckets a lot.

                            • lonewolf / Jedi,

                              I have heard folks complaining about the fitment quality of the Mustang fiberglass stuff from Maier Racing Enterprises for 15+ years. I'd bet they were one of the first suppliers of Mustang FB panels back in the day, and I always thought if they could get their quality up, they'd be able to sell all they could produce. They do have some pretty cool stuff. unk: Unfortunately for all of us they apparently are still having quality problems.

                              A quick "Maier" search right here on M&M will tell the tale......

                              Guys, I'd suggest you warn your body man and prepare yourself for some less-than-perfect body panels......

                              Ryan

                              • I purchased my hood, trunk lid, and front apron a long time ago, over 25 years. The hood fit great. Had it on when I rolled my 65. I've never put the other pieces on but will be soon, hopefully NOT after 25 more years.
