I would like to figure out how to work with fiberglass. I already had someone tell me how to make molds, but I don't know where to get fiberglass or even what I am looking for.

what I was told to do is to use that green foam that they put fake flowers in. Glue them together until you get to the size desired. Then cut it to the rough shape you want and sand it smooth. then you can cover it with the fiberglass.

This is what I was told I haven't tried it out but it was recommended by two people on another website.

then how do you guys make the molds?
build wood skeletons then wrap with fleece and resin the piss out of it :biggrin: then sand it, etc :roflmao:[/b][/quote]
and that takes a lot of practice to get it right believe me it can be a real pain :ugh:

ok so if I make the base mold that matches the inside of the door and then form the outside to it then it will be solid but once I do that then how would I attatch it?

just drill holes in the back and use the stock clips from the origional door pannel or what? any ideas?
