Cobra light fix

I bought a Cobra spoiler and light for my 01 GT. Came with the usual busted brake light, soI figured instead of 200 bucks, why not fix it.
I epoxied the tabs back on, then reinforced them with PC7 epoxy from behind, then sanded down with 400 wet paper, applied 2 coats of Bulldog adhesion promoter, then 3 coats of urethane clear coat. You can still see the cracks, but all in all, looks pretty good for stuff I had in the garage. And I think with the reinforcing in back it should last alot longer.

Yep, and front bumper eventually. Sure wasnt cheap! But when you have something in your head, might as well build what you want.
