The Dragon Gate has mobile wings that open and close to allow entrance through the gate. We posted the video of the unfinished gate earlier with just the wings. The pictures below show different angles of the dragon, notice from different angles the color shift, especially on the wings and the horns. Link to Facebook: see Dragon Gate Wing Closing

Fiberglass Hardtop Repair

Need to know how to repair a fiberglass hardtop? Lou F. can tell you, "I got a 50 year old removable hardtop with my 1966 MGB. The finish was cracked all over the top. I had to sand it back to the fiberglass, then applied 3 coats of the Rapid Urethane Primer (used 2 cans) sanded and spot filled, then applied 3 more coats of the primer. Final sanded and prepped for the Polaris Silver Metallic. I applied 6 coats of the color letting them flash between coats.
I'm very satisfied with the end result." Lou F., San Jose, CA.
