Front Fenders.....$265 each
Rear Fenders......$165 each
Windscreen.........$165
Hood...................$215
Trunk...................$215
Air Dam...............$190

Full kit.................$1600

All prices plus shipping.
total of above is $1215

Why is the "full kit" nearly $400 more? Are there extra bits included in the "full kit" that are not listed in the detailed section above?
(just curious :smt006 )
My junk pile:
71 Jeep Gladiator. Restored w/#s matching engine. My WeeBeasty
70 1600 legit 2nd owner. Stroked and bored
Several salvaged w access to a barn full of parts, part cars & whole cars
......What's in the barn is for sale. What do you need?

Just take pics and when you're home at night and cant make any more noises, start a thread! haha

OP is racing this weekend, so maybe next week he will reply to ya.

I look forward to what comes of this

Regarding the weight of the fiberglass parts? I have received my complete Japco kit and weighed the parts. The trunk is 3 pounds compared to your stock part 13 pounds. The hood is 7 pounds the stock is 25. Fenders are 10 pound savings each. Rule of thumb on horse power is 10 pounds equals 1 hp. I hope your questions are answered now. :roll:

Obviously late to the party, however, any updates?

Just for those that might stumble across this thread, I weighed my fiberglass compared to the tin I removed and the full set was worth about 70lbs reduction in weight.
That didn't include headlight assys and hood/trunk hinges and latches that were already off the car.
